Living with Linux on the Laptop: Graphics
Now, I’m working with graphics. I use Fireworks for graphics manipulation. I’m no graphic artist, but I do need to do simple stuff like removing a picture from its background and then making a transparent background for it. That allows images to appear to float against a black background in PowerPoint (now OpenOffice Presentation). So…I opened up the GIMP to do the treatment to an image of a firewall appliance. Well, this is not very intuitive! I’ll work through some of the tutorial tonight and see what happens.
