Gimp Keeps You Organized In 2009

Filed under
GIMP

If you're like most computer users, you probably have a digital camera and scanner. So, you're saving a lot of images and photos on your computer. In addition, there are probably some bits and pieces of photos that you store in an image library so you can incorporate it into a new design or other image.

When I was using Windows, the graphics app I used had a built in image library. I could drag and drop images and clippings into the library for future use. The problem was, when I upgraded to a new computer and reinstalled the software, I had to move a specific folder within the Windows file system. And the folder was always buried away some place. It took hours and a visit to the web to ask other users in order to locate it. Worse still was if I ever reinstalled the program. The reinstallation routine would overwrite the entire library. If I didn't back it up, all those images were lost!

Luckily, The Gimp in Linux is much easier to use.

  • Confused by license compatibility? A new article by Richard Stallman may help
    Richard Stallman has published a new guide on gnu.org titled License compatibility and relicensing. Gnu.org is home to a whole host of resources on free software licensing, including frequently asked questions about GNU licenses and our list of free software licenses. Our license list contains information on which licenses are compatible with the GNU General Public License as well as a brief description of what it means to be compatible. This latest article by Stallman provides a more in–depth explanation of what compatibility means and the different ways in which it is achieved.
  • The most important part of your project might not even be a line of code
    What is licensing? Why does it matter? Why should you care? There are many reasons that licensing is an important part of a project you are working on. You are taking the time to write code and share it with the world in an open way, such as publishing it on GitHub, Bitbucket, or any number of other code-hosting services. Anyone might stumble across your code and find it useful. Licensing is the way that you can control exactly how someone who finds your code can use it and in what ways.
