Workflow Wiki

In show 140 I talked about a workflow documentation that was sent to me from Bill out of Belize. I have now finally got enough kicks in the backside to publish it. It’s a Wiki, so you are all invited to make this larger and better. I have made no limits to access (up to now), let’s see what develops. The original text from Bill is there too.

On this weekend I’ll be at the Brandenburger Linux-Infotag 2010 in Potsdam. I’ll give a basic workshop about photo editing in GIMP. Up to now I have only a foggy idea what to tell there. ;-)

Video front is clearing up. I have installed after Andy’s nagging PCLinuxOS and like it up to now. Cinelerra is running, they have even Cinepaint in the repos. Now find some time to record…. ;-)

  1. Hi,

    When I try and log in the @ symbol in the email addr / login name gets changed to an underscore ( _ ) and the login is rejected as the username is incorrect. Not sure how to get round this.

    Regards,

    Francesco

  2. Rolf & Bill, I think that this guide is very nice especially for people who might be considered a bit technically challenged (like me) who discovered “Meet the Gimp” a little late in the game and are sometimes overwhelmed. This guide is succinct and easy to follow and with a little help from your friends can only get better. Congratulations and thank you.

  3. Hi,

    Is the intention of the wiki purely for outlining a workflow or is it intended that hints / tips / tricks / advice etc be also embedded within it ?

    Regards,

  4. Will the wiki accept the same login as the forum?
    And Rolf, does this mean you’ve seen the light and switched to KDE? ;-)

  5. The Wiki will grow (or not) to something – I have no idea where it will end. So everything that seems useful can be included.

    The Wiki is separate from the forum, no data connection. So it’s up to you what name you are using there. And it allows anonymous contributions.

    I am still on Gnome – tried KDE a bit now and was not convinced to switch back to it. I used KDE under SuSE until I switched to Ubuntu in 97.

  6. A few years ago I had Photoshop Elements and Gimp on my computer, and I was trying to learn Elements because my Dad was taking courses and showing me what to do.

    Then I discovered Meet the Gimp, and Rolf’s video tutorials helped me so much that I’m now trying to convince my Dad to switch to Gimp. He’s 85 and his memory isn’t as good as it used to be, so I wrote a summary/guide to help him learn.

    I didn’t intend to rewrite the instruction manual; this is aimed at people who are learning Gimp or need a memory aid.

    I have learned so much from Rolf and other contributors on Meet the Gimp that this is my way of giving back.

    I hope others find it useful.

  7. Wow, this is just cool! I ust hope, that I did not break anything in the process of editing the wiki page…

    I think, to start with the workflow is a great Idea. This leaves a lot of room to add separate pages for some steps.

    For example one could add a page about the cloning tool.

    Keep this wiki alive! It’s just great!

  8. There is no way to break something in a Wiki, all changes can be rolled back. So no fear about editing – adding – restructuring, all is possible.

Anything to add from your side of the computer?
