So it begins…

The ‘GIMP Master Class‘ is one of our features in the magazine reserved for digital artists, designers and photographers who have achieved great things using GIMP and want to share their experience with the world.  Our Master Class features are designed to be high level tutorials that describe a significant  piece of artistic work.  Ludovic Celle’s (http://ludoviccelle.com/ ) six page Master Class tutorial takes us on a step by step journey of how he created, “Green Growth” an actual avenue in Grenoble, France that he radically transformed using GIMP in about 15 hours!

  1. Hey Steve!
    You´re looking forward…in Europe? You make a great Job! THANKS!
    … for this Mag.
    Is it also available in German next Time?

    • Hi Andreas,

      We have had a few requests for the magazine to be published in different languages. The difficulty is that our team is very small, and we have no expertise in translation. The second difficulty is the amount of work involved to do a proper translation of both text and rework the layout of the graphics multiplied by multiple languages makes this a very difficult task.

      We are looking at a partial solution of using an automated system that will translate into any language on earth. It is not perfect by any means, it does not correct for layout, but it is a step in that direction and will work with modern tablet devices. We will communicate if we choose this method. Until then it is Canadian English – as the publication actually originates out of Canada.

      Cheers
      Steve

  2. This is excellent news. I used to use Photoshop (excuse the language) some years ago but then moved over to Ubuntu. Tried to use Photoshop Elements in Wine but it was too much hassle and then tried GIMP. I have to say it was a steep learning curve and this magazine will be a boon.
    Good luck to you all.
