    Gimp is back in action!

    Hey guys listen up I just got threw reading the release notes on gimp.org and GIMP 2.8 is on it's ways.
    They've just got to tweak it up a little bit. I can't wait until they release 2.8... I heard there's going to be a vector section in it though.
    What do you guys think especially you Shinku.

    I can barely use GIMP now, and they are going to add whatever a vector is to it? I think its only going to make the program more complicated! I think I will just be sticking with what I have for now at least.

    Great. The current version is great. I'l like to see what they do with the vector section.

    Yup, I am also a GIMPer. ;]

    It may just be a set of filters that can be used to vector an image. Nothing complicated.

    Sorry for the double post. I thought that my posts would merge as they do on other forums. :S

    It might just as easy as the other way of vectoring which is so time consuming. Naturally it pisses me off to a point I just stop and quit.

    Though...I don't think I've done any vectoring yet...

    Re: Gimp is back in action!

    The only problem that I have in vectoring is that I get bored easily. I just want to stop within the same hour that I start.

    The new filters may not do a great job though. PhotoShop has a vectoring filter but it is pretty horrid. D:

    @ Ren: Vector graphics - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    You pretty much have to outline/color the entire thing. You copy an image to make it look better. It is mostly used to increase the size of images.

    I'm a big fan of Gimp--especially since I no longer have Photoshop. ^_^

    I think I'm still at 2.6 or somethin' like that. Either way, I think I'm gonna stick with what I have. I don't really care for vectors. Too time consuming.
