"If you're into graphic design, image manipulation,
photo-retouching, and the like, you already know that the GIMP is a
godsend for visually creative Linuxers. It's got all the best
features of Photoshop, and it's free. Now, you don't even have to
buy a book to learn how to use it, thanks to Carey Bunks, the
author of Grokking the GIMP."
"Grokking the GIMP is a full text, published on real paper and
available through Amazon.com or at your local bookstore. But in the
spirit of Open Source, the author and friends have graciously
published the tome in its entirety at Gimp-savvy. In some ways, the
online version of the book is better than the print. Most notably,
the ability to click through on hyperlinked cross-references is
fabulous whether you're boning up on a particular topic, or
following a train of thought through the text."
"Grokking" goes deep into the subject matter, leaving little to
the imagination. If you read the whole thing, you're going to learn
cool stuff, like optimal video RAM, working with layers and
"floats," selection tools, paths, masks, color blending,
composites, rendering, and Web-centricity."
