New GIMP Brush Sets

Visit the link http://www.junauza.com/2009/10/25-awesome-gimp-brush-sets-1000-free.html

Now, I guess you must have already installed these awesome brushes. I tried and really liked the way these new brushes can be used.

I tried them out myself, although I do not know how to use GIMP much.

To use these newly installed brush-sets, select Paintbrush from the Toolbox, and select the required Brush from the lower pane.




Converting jpg files Into pdf

This is really useful for students, as I am one of them too. Converting separate jpg files into a single pdf file is one of the most needed tasks anytime, but especially before the exams. What you have to do is:

1. Install imagemagick.

varsha@varsha-laptop:~$ sudo apt-get install imagemagick

Enter your root password.

imagemagick is installed.

2. Change to the directory where you have your jpg files.

varsha@varsha-laptop:~$ cd /media/disk/Study/Notes/

3. Convert.

varsha@varsha-laptop:/media/disk/Study/Notes$ convert *.jpg Notes-9.10.09.pdf


Happy studying!

Not only jpg to pdf, but imagemagick can also be used to convert image files from one format to another.
