Automated Digital Graphic Scene Completion is here!

August 9, 2007

WTF am I talking about!?!

Easy – Ever take a lovely digital picture only to find later that some schmoe got between your camera and your stripper at just the right time? Take him out and fill in the blank!


The example is much more family appropriate, but something tells me that finding a picture of a stripper on the interporn … err… I mean Internet won’t be terribly difficult.


The GIMP User Interface gets updated!

July 29, 2007

I just picked this up off of the Ubuntu forums…

The GIMP is getting a User Interface (UI) redesign and we can expect portions to be available now (the new select/crop tool) and more in 2.4 (like a single window to rule them all!)


Check it out on their very own wiki 

Tips Tricks and Tutorials (T3) section up!

July 4, 2007

I created a new section to the site titled T3 (Tips, Tricks and Tutorials) navigable from the main page listings. This is intended to be a repository of the various T3 I stumble across on the web that I found particularly useful. There is no limit on what may show up in there, anything from games/gaming to GIMP/GimpShop (my first entry), Ubuntu (or other Linux stuff) or just anything else that prompted me to learn and get something working better on my system.

Why can’t I edit a marqee selection in * photo editor?

June 27, 2007

Here’s a question I’ve pondered for a while. I thought it was just me, but a friend was over this evening and on the off chance he asked the same question…

In Photoshop or GIMP (or whatever photo editing tool you use) why can’t you edit your marquee selection after you have unclicked it? By marquee selection I mean the round selection tool or the square selection tool.

Sure, you can drag it into shape, but once your finger comes off that mouse button all you can do is nudge it with the arrow keys. A little up, over to the left a smidge maybe. But what if it isn’t quite the right size? What if I got this corner correct but I want it a little wider on that side, or a little taller or narrower?

So, can anyone tell me why this is? I think this would be a good suggestion for future version of GIMP. It would be remarkably useful for the crop command too.

And that’s what really bugs me. You can do it with the Photoshop Crop tool, but not with the selection tool. Why would you want something as obvious as this left out?
