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/ Bye for now.
