Okay. You win. The GIMP is not as good as Adobe Photoshop, and I
am sorry that I have spent the last sixteen years trying to convince
you otherwise. But the GNU Image Manipulation Program is still plenty
good, and plenty of people use it to touch up photos and create
digital art. This month's KWLUG meeting features presentations from
two such users: first-time presenter Julie Dey, and veteran presenter
Raul Suarez. 

This month's FLOSS Fund nominee is Unpaper, which performs image
manipulations of a different sort. Unpaper is a program that cleans up
scanned images of books -- straightening them out, removing black
borders, and fixing inadvertant rotations. It is an example of a small
but useful tool, and you can read more about it at http://unpaper.berlios.de
You can donate to the project during the meeting, or by contacting me
offlist. 

KWLUG is getting short on both presentation topics and FLOSS Fund
nominations by people other than Andrew Cant. If you have some ideas
in either of these areas, bring them to the meeting.

We meet in the usual place: 

St John's Kitchen
97 Victoria St N
Kitchener
(At the corner of Victoria and Weber)

There are photos and maps of the location here:
