    PP on Linux + Gimp - video

    Hi,

    Yesterday I have uploaded some content showing a medium-level difficulty video of Post-processing a digital shot using Linux + Gimp.
    It comes actually very handy, as we usually don't need the superlative power of all the Photoshop tools, but what we need, we can find at one click distance in Gimp.
    Usually I edit a "exported from raw" file as TIF 16 bit: in the video I'll show a 8 bit jpeg, as it's faster and less boring to watch

    Edited pic:

    Enjoy,,

    Thank you. It is always tough that how-to resources are typically only for Adobe products. Foe the odd times I sometimes need to edit things it's not worth installing Windows.

    I've been using GIMP for a few years now it's a very capable piece of software, I don't own Photoshop although I have the cut back version that came with my scanner but never installed it. I'm still using a 2004 version of Paintshop Pro.

    How is color management on Linux now? The last time I tried an open source process, color management was the stumbling block. How about Epson printer drivers?

    This has been the problem - there's no question that GIMP is a versatile and capable program, but just try sending that image to an Epson photo printer and see if you get the same results as using a Windows or Apple computer with native Windows/Mac Epson drivers... anyone?

    Easy, because I can, and if I could, you can too,

    Cheers,

    It's not that difficult these days, as you can work in a given color space and color profile and print using that same color profile latter. Linux have some robusts color management systems, I have LittleCMS in this workstation. ArgillCMS is generally used for Display color profiling, as its compatible with a lot of color profiler devices.
    For printing, I can't give you the best answer, as I do all my photo work in B&W on the wet, and the colour work is printed at a professional bureau - for the low volume of color it doesn't worth to have a high end color printer, at least for me,

    Cheers,

    Renato

    I use Lightroom for PP. It is simple for me to use, but I do very little in the way of adjustments. I suppose I need to do a little Googling, look at some how-to's, etc, to learn how to use Gimp. Just curious if you started learning Gimp with any particular book or internet resource.
