GIMP tricks: Snooker ball as a pseudo 3d object

Filed under
GIMP
HowTos

I don’t really remember when and where, but I have read once about that GIMP isn’t suitable to create pseudo 3D graphics. Nothing more fallible. I will try to show you that it’s wrong.

Enough! Run the GIMP and let’s start!

1. Create a new transparent image 300×300 px in size.

2. Create a new layer with a black background and name it “ball”.

3. Create a new transparent layer and name it “number”.

4. On the layer “number” make a circle with a 120 px diameter by “Select elliptical regions” tool in the center of the image. The simplest way of doing it is to set a fixed size: width and height to 120 px. Move the cursor to the point (90,90) and select the area with the fixed-size circle selection.

So, if I were to use Ubuntu on my desktop, I would still choose LTS. Read more

Workflow and efficiency geek talks Drush and Drupal

I started using Drupal because I needed an open source content management system (CMS) to use in several community projects. One of the projects I was involved with was just getting started and had narrowed its CMS selection down to either Drupal or Joomla. At the time I was using a different framework, but I had considered Drupal in the past and knew that I liked it a lot better than Joomla. I convinced them to go with the new Drupal 6 release and converted all of my other projects for consistency. I started working with Drush because I wanted a unified mechanism to work with local and remote sites. My first major contribution to Drush was site aliases and sql-sync in Drush 3. Read more
