Next Monday, October 6th, at 18:30, haifux is about to meet and
hear Eli Billauer's talk about

        GIMP tutorial workshop meeting

GIMP is the most well-known image editing application among Linux
users, and still most of us struggle when attempting to accomplish the
simplest real-life task with it. The application is considered a
Photoshop parallel, even though it doesn't attempt to imitate the
latter. It's a free software project, available at no cost for
GNU/Linux, Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, Solaris and many others.

The workshop will consist of no slides, but some simple whiteboard
explanations and a lot of demonstrations. Focus will be given to basic
issues and everyday tasks, and those small pieces of knowledge which
makes GIMP a handy tool. The meeting has an agenda to start with, but
will be conducted in a free manner, so audience's interests may
influence its content to a large extent.

This workshop will be dedicated to layers and layer masks for three
main reasons:

    * Not understanding layers properly is a recipe for a lot of
frustration (usually without knowing that the problem involves layers)
    * Using layers wisely saves a lot of work.
    * Very pretty results are easy to achieve, once the techniques are known.

There are several other subjects ready for future meetings, should the
audience show interest in such.


We meet in Taub building, room 6. For instructions see:

Attendance is free, and you are all invited!


We are always interested in hearing your talks and ideas. If you wish
to give a talk, hold a discussion, or just plan some event haifux
might be interested in, please contact us at webmaster at haifux.org.
