And here it is! Since I can’t afford Photoshop, so, I decided to start around with Gimp.
And here is the most first post of this blog! Getting know first about the tool, eh? Hehe..
Here is the snapshot below of Gimp 2.8′s toolbox. Almost same with the older 2.6.11 There’s a new tool in Gimp 2.8
The tool under the Crop Tool, it is the Cage Transform Tool with a shortcut of SHIFT+G
The function is almost same like Transform tool, but, it makes a selection first, then you could transform that selected point. So that’s why this tool is called the Cage Transform Tool.
For the Gimp newbies, or formerly Photoshop users, here is the quiet nice things you need to understand!
- Free Selection Tool and Fuzzy Select ToolThe Free Selection Tool ( shortcut F )
Is the selection tool, or you can call it “Lasso Tool” in Photoshop. It has the same function, to create a selection of a pict that being processed.
Fuzzy Select Tool ( shortcut U )
In Photoshop, this tool is called “Magic Wand Tool”. A tool that available to make selection with once a click, but it makes a random selection. This tool sometimes help when you are going to delete a pict with a one color background.
- Path Tool a.k.a “Pen Tool”
It looks like we were talking the same topic. In Photoshop, this tool’s called “Pen Tool”. It has the same function also! To make a better selection with pointing and making vectors.
- Blend Tool the Gradient Tool
Don’t get wrong Because actually, Blend Tool is used to make a gradient. Gimp also do this. The Blend Tool contains many gradient colors, and also the gradient style.
- Clone Tool
In Gimp, we didn’t need to worry about it, because the Gimp’s Clone Tool was same with Photoshop’s.
