O.M.F.G. This Sucks

Oct 2nd, 2009 | By | Category: Portfolio

The site was designed to be kitschy and obnox­ious, which I think we accom­plished, but it was also sup­posed to be sim­ple. No move­ment (that isn’t an ad) and no crazy plu­g­ins that do crazy things… Just a site where you can go and get a laugh at the expense of oth­ers.

Why I Love the G.I.M.P.

The GIMP has sev­er­al things going for it. First, there’s the price. I don’t care who you are, but com­ing up with a bet­ter price than free is a tough sell (except that you intend to pay me to use your soft­ware). Sec­ond, I’m a big fan of mul­ti­ple mon­i­tors so the GIMP mod­el of not hav­ing a stage sur­round­ed by tools is great. I use four mon­i­tors in sort of a cock­pit (or com­mand cen­ter, as my friend Mike says) con­fig­u­ra­tion. I put the tools box on one side of the image, the lay­ers / paths box on the oth­er and then I have this huge image area to work with. With Pho­to­shop, I’d have to stretch the stage across sev­er­al mon­i­tors, and that’s just hard to man­age.
