How to find a missing font in a GIMP XCF file.
GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation Program) is a free and open source graphics editor. It provides the features and tools to create and edit raster graphics and is available on a variety of major platforms (Linux, Mac OS X and Windows).
As a Linux user I was quite surprised to see GIMP crash on Windows Vista when using certain features like “Colourise”. I’ve never had a problem with GIMP on various Linux distributions so I wasn’t sure if there was a bug in the Windows build or something up with Windows in general. With no updates available and nothing on Google I started thinking it was something to do with Windows and permissions.
I was recently asked (by my girlfriend who’s learning HTML) what image formats to use on websites. After trying to explain things such as transparency in GIFs I thought it would be best just to write it up.
In this reference we’ll take a look at creating a nice content divider for a web page that repeats horizontally. I don’t know the exact term for an effect like this but “Graphical Content Divider” will suffice.
