This show covers the single window mode of GIMP 2.7.1 with a video (which sat some weeks here) from nachbarnebenan. I just installed the new version on my machine and I like it.
Then I scratch an itch I had – Printing DVDs with GIMP.
The sound in this episode in not as good as usual. Sorry.

  1. Ich weiß nicht, ob ich mich mit dem Single Windows Mode bei Gimp anfreunden kann.
    Wahrscheinlich alles Gewohnheitssache und man muss ja nicht.

    BTW: Interessant finde ich, dass Du FuBo (Bio-Imker) kennst.

  2. FuBo verkauft uns jeden Freitag ein Brot, heute Erdbeerkuchen und manchmal Honig. Er hat seinen Stand ungefähr 50m von unserer Haustür weg.

    (Just smalltalk about a honey merchant and bee keeper)

  3. The reason I didn’t mention the tab key is simple: It always crashed on me (this was recorded before 2.7.1 was branched).

  4. Wow, ich habe mir das mal angesehen und echt so viele Kleinigkeiten gelernt. Auch wenn mich das Thema gar nicht interessiert, so viel neues entdeckt.

    Danke, danke für die grandiose Arbeit.
