I’m finally getting around to fixing the missing images in a serious way. I think most of the tutorial images are now present. I know there are still some missing tool icons and also some of the script download links may not work either. Please be patient, I will now start making a few passes over the site to fix up the broken links. Then I will ask for some help to update the tutorials to newer versions of the gimp.
I’ve managed to get most of the tutorial text migrated over, and preserving all the old links (I think). Unfortunately, the images are presenting a bit of a problem. The old site had all the images located under each tutorial. WordPress does not like to do things that way, it seems. It wants to put them all in folders by month. Since a lot of the images have the same name, there will be lots of collisions. I’m still trying to figure out if there is any way to guide wordpress to put the files in separate directories. If anyone has any good ideas please drop me a line, or comment on this post.
In any case, I ask your continued good patience while I work this out, and if you need to access any of the old material with images you can visit the Internet Wayback Machine. Try this URL (you’ll have to paste it into your browser bar, I think:
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!
UPDATE: I know a lot of the image links are broken–please be patient!
