One of the things I’ve quietly told myself in my head is that ‘one day’ I would learn either Photoshop or GIMP. I really want to learn a photo editting application. Actually, the more I think about it, the more I should set up a GTD project and get started on it…

But, over the last 5 years I’ve been putting it off. Photoshop is just stupid expensive.So, I guess learning GIMP is my option.

GIMP is a staple on the Linux platform.I didn’t even realize that only 3 people maintain it! 3 PEOPLE! WTF? That is unbelievable…There is concern that with such a small developer base that the GIMP will die a slow death. Sad…I stumbled upon a blog posting asking people to contribute to the project. Count me in! Donation going their way…If you use the GIMP, now in the time to contribute to it. Either financially, donating time, or whatever they may need.
