    Having read Mrk's Gimp enhancement article http://www.dedoimedo.com/computers/gimp-plugins.html, for which many thanks, I feel inspired to share
    another fun tutorial viz. Blending two images with Gimp :)

    I tried it a while ago on some old photos I found. When I sent the blended image to the folks concerned they were somewhat confused, but figured out it was 'photoshop' due to the insertion of Tim, our cat. :argh:

    To illustrate:

    He would love to throw a whopping great shadow, but is too low profile to throw one. :)

    Looks like reflections are another source of concern ;)

    Will some kind person please post a link to a very elementary guide to GIMP?

    I found some decent videos to get me started. My needs are really simple (for now). I just want to know how to edit screenshots to draw ellipses around stuff I want to highlight. I got to know how to do it in Pinta but I've decided to remove mono totally and Pinta needs mono.

    One doubt has been cleared already: it's an image manipulation program and not a drawing program! That's why I couldn't find drawing tools. Anyway, I need to use the Select, Ellipse tool and go from there.

    Settled for GNU Paint :)

    I have been watching the progress on Photofiltre-LX http://photofiltre-lx.org/index.html
    Used Photofiltre in Windows XP - it was (is) a first class program.
    Hopefully the porting to Linux won't take too much longer.
