    For Ubuntu users who have just switched from Windows, 'The Gimp' paint program might seem a little strange.
    Here are a few useful filters and plugins.

    G'MIC for Gimp Put it into / home/user/.gimp-2xx/plug-ins folder after extracting. In Gimp find it under 'Filters' tab.

    Lomo Plugin elsamuko-lomo.scm (scroll down) Put it into /home/user/.gimp-2xx/scripts folder. In Gimp find it under 'Filters'>'Light and Shadow'

    Liquid Rescale. This plugin comes with the gimp-plugin-registry package (Universe) in Synaptic. http://liquidrescale.wikidot.com/
    In Gimp find it under 'Layers' tab.

    There are hundreds of filetrs, brushes, scripts, patterns etc. available. Just Google. Useful site: http://registry.gimp.org/

    Lol... I hope my occasional ramblings are not too irritating. As to 'busy bee' - well, with new Dedoimedo articles almost every second day :thumb: you are the quintessential 'worker bee'. Please keep it up and don't flag. :D

    Export to SWF

    This python script might be quite useful. For instance the Generate XHTML File
    option reduces the image size considerably. From 36,3KB to 1,3KB with one
    I tried.
    The Export to swf is available under File menu in Gimp 'Flash SWF Export'.
    The script should be placed in ~/.gimp-2.6/plug-ins
    It seems to be updated regularly with new features planned. Have alook at the
    blog for more details and download:-

    EDIT:- The swftools package is required. (Synaptic)
