No real work today – but a lot of fun with the iwarp plugin and a little bit of the GAP (Gimp Animation Package). And you get some more advice about making animations by some of the viewers.

You find Jeffegg2’s baby picture here. Still a bit of a wrinkled forehead – but definitely a smile.

The GAP tutorial at gimp.org has more informations about GAP.

Don’t forget to make a panorama and put it into the photogroup!
