GIMP Guru

Welcome to GIMPGuru v2

Welcome Gentle Readers!

I have converted GIMPGuru.org from a static html site into a WordPress hosted one.

I am slowly migrating all the content over.  Of most interest, perhaps, are the set of tutorials that have been replicated on the Tutorials page.  I’ve tried to preserve the links so that everything works as before.  Please let me know if it doesn’t by commenting to this post.

My main reason for this change is that the new format and dynamic nature of WordPress will allow me to do some things with the site that I had wanted to do for a while now, but hadn’t got around to doing because of my busy day job and family life.  You can look for these changes coming down the road:

  • Updating the tutorials to track the latest version of the GIMP
  • More Gurus!  Guest submissions!  Comments!
  • Blog postings on items of interest to photographers and GIMP users
  • Did I mention more Gurus?

Keep your eyes peeled for the changes.  And thanks for stopping by!

Happy GIMPing,

–Eric

UPDATE: I know a lot of the image links are broken–please be patient!

  2. Hey Eric,

    Is it only me or is it that a bit more than just that “a lot of the image links are broken”?

    Almost every link I try on http://gimpguru.wordpress.com/tutorials/ reports “Sorry, no posts matched your criteria..”

  3. Sorry, I haven’t yet got most of the tutorials moved over. Please be patient. In the meantime you can visit the old links at the Internet Wayback Machine: http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://gimpguru.org

  4. I am taking a course in B&W photography where we use a darkroom. When I finish the course, having no personal darkroom, I’ll have to revert to digital but I want to learn how to achieve the same pictorial command I had in the darkroom. While I’ve used GIMP for years, your set of tutorials are just what I need right now to use more techniques in GIMP. Thank you.

    A quick comment, probably not news to you: I was not able to obtain the script to automate your red-eye reduction method(s).

  5. piano1man, enjoy your darkroom course! I hope to get all images populated back over soon. And the scripts, too.

  6. Out of interest, what made you switch from a static site to WordPress hosting? My programming tutorial site is currently on WordPress.com, but I was considering switching to a static self hosted site in the future.

  7. It’s a bit more work to maintain a static site, and then you often end up having to implement all kinds of features that are already in a hosted blog-like system: dynamic, rolling-off entries, a comment system, etc.
