"Although we're sad to see the Gimp tutorial go away
for the time being, we'd like to thank its author - the incredibly
prolific Michael J. Hammel - for all the awesome work he's done
over the years, and we're happy to announce that we're releasing
high-res PDFs of Michael's 18 most recent GIMP tutorials for
everyone to enjoy.
"LXF readers have, we hope, learned a lot following in Michael's
footsteps over the years, and it's great to be able to share these
tutorials with an even wider audience. In these tutorials, you'll
learn how to create all sorts of fun, weird and wonderful effects
with Gimp, and the step-by-step guide should make it easy for users
of all levels to follow.
"We're giving you the high-res PDFs - the same ones we use to
actually print the pages of the magazine - which means they'll look
awesome on your screen, or printed out. The down-side of this is
that the files are quite big - the total download is 90MB.
"You're free to use these tutorials for personal use or for
non-commercial offline redistribution - ie, you can give them away
at your LUG, share them with colleagues at your office, or burn
them to a CD as a backup. Please don't put them online; if someone
else wants to download them, direct them to this URL."
