Subject: [Balug-talk] PenLUG this week! Topic: the GIMP

The Peninsula Linux Users' Group (PenLUG) has a meeting this week.
Note: this is the second meeting at our new location, in Twin Pines
Park in Belmont.  Come enjoy a fascinating presentation, plus free
pizza and sodas, and maybe get some free books too!

Date: 	 Thursday, May 25th, 2006
Time: 	meeting 7:00 - 9:00 PM, social/networking until 10 PM
Location: 	Twin Pines Park, 1225 Ralston Ave, Belmont, CA 94002

Speaker: Akkana Peck
Topic: What's New in GIMP? Plus Tips and Tricks

Have you seen the development version of GIMP lately? Some of the
basic tools you may use already have been greatly improved, and there
are some new tools which can simplify previously difficult tasks.

Akkana will give an introduction to some of the new features coming up
in GIMP 2.4, and she'll also present some tricks for getting the most
out of any version of GIMP. Come learn how to paint your car (or your
dog) a different color, ways to select a single flower from a
photograph, and how to make some cool 3-D effects. Or bring questions
about how to use GIMP for your own projects.

Akkana Peck is a freelance programmer and author of the new book
Beginning GIMP: From Novice to Professional. She has worked for a
range of Silicon Valley companies that include Netscape, Silicon
Graphics, Sun, HP, and Apple, and has contributed to a wide range of
open source projects (including, of course, GIMP). A PenLUG member,
she lives in San Jose and has been using Linux and GIMP since about
1997. You can find more of her musings at her website.
