MagCloud did an great job of printing the high resolution version of this magazine.  We are so impressed with this service.  The cost is around $23 and this includes a $5 contribution to GIMP Magazine.  The print quality and service makes it so worth while.  The quality is truly outstanding compared to the digital online version.  They also have an iPad version too that is free with the purchase of the magazine.  Check them out at

  8. Is there a reason why GIMP Magazine isn’t being released in landscape format? The Ubuntu magazine ran a couple of issues before the community almost unanimously decided that digitally released magazines were much more palatable in landscape for use on monitors, pads and phones. I’d much prefer to see a landscape layout? Anyone with me?

    • Hi, the short answer is because we offer this magazine both in print and digital format. Personally I love the print version. It looks absolutely amazing, and this is an important aspect of using GIMP to prepare full colour magazine images in print format. The trouble is that print-on-demand is a bit more costly for people to purchase and therefore we do have way more digital subscribers than print subscribers. Early on, we had several people who commented that they wanted a print subscription. So there still is a market for printed magazines. We have reached out to a few mainstream publishers in Canada, but nothing to report just yet. I use the view/two pages in my PDF reader software which works great. I also like the UI that provides. Cheers Steve

  10. About the GIMP vs PS article in the alpha to selection feature: isn’t this the same as “select pixels” in PS or CTRL + click on the layer icon? the article says that the feature is not available in Photoshop.
