Beginning GIMP: From Novice to Professional

Filed under
Misc

Beginning GIMP: From Novice to Professional, by Akkana Peck, a longtime member of the GIMP community, went out this April at Apress (it was released on my B-day, as I just noticed).

Based on one of the latest GIMP 2.3.x development releases, and (obviously) printed in color by the publisher, this book has all the ingredients for a big success: a skilled and inspired author, appealing examples, an extremely comprehensive content (see the Table of Contents as PDF or in HTML), everything you need to start using and enjoying the power of GIMP in any OS it supports — the 522-pages book has separate appendices on how to install GIMP on Windows, Mac, and Linux/*BSD/Unix, with individual notes for various distributions, or even on how to build it from source.

Full Story.

These include the Linux 4.8 kernel packages and an updated graphics stack based on a newer X.Org Server version and Mesa 3D Graphics Library. Read more
