A nice feature crept into GIMP 2.7 under my Radar – presets for the tools in the toolbox. You can store all the settings, give them a name and recall them later. I show how to make some for rotating an image and cropping in different aspect ratios.
GIMP 2.7 includes also a system for tagging brushes. A combination of tags and presets allows a big but manageable collection of special brushes. This needs further exploring.
Then I have to brag about the low light capabilities my new X100 – ISO 2000 and nearly no noise.
There is no torrent file for the moment, because we still have to resolve these tracker issues. And beware of the companion file – I think it is only useful for you if you want to tinker with the RAW file or check out an image out of a X100.
