  • * New 64-bit version.
  • * NVIDIA nForce 980a chipset support.

Gimp 2.6.4 Released

Posted in Business Software, Development Software, Fun Stuff, Graphics, Linux, Mac OS, Site News, Software Companies, Solaris, Windows

Introducing another sophisticated paint and photo-editing program – GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation Program) – the next version 2.6.4 has just been released. There are several bug fixes over the previous version.

Gimp shares several similarities with Adobe Photoshop, but the most apparent differences between the two is that the latter is a paid version, whilst the former is made available publicly as an open-source program.

In saying so, it simply means that what you can do in Photoshop are likely to be the things that you can do with GIMP, including complicated image filtering, lighting effects, etc.

Gimp Portable 2.6.2 Released

Posted in Fun Stuff, Graphics, Linux, Mac OS, Site News, Utilities, Windows

Where graphical editing tools are concerned, in my opinion, there is nothing that beats these 2 top products in the market – Adobe Photoshop and GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation Program). Whereas the former requires users to pay for its use, the latter is released under the GNU GPL license, such that users can download the application for free and use it as according to the regulation stated by its license. Anyway, the news here is that, GIMP Portable 2.6.2 is released for your update.

GIMP Portable 2.6.2 is slightly different from GIMP 2.6.2, in the sense that this application is “portable“; that is, the installation can be done on a USB thumb drive or a removable drive and data is not written onto the hard disk drive. Thus it allows users to carry the application on a thumb drive and move it from one PC to another. That is an amazing feature, if you are working in an environment where installation of programs is strictly prohibited on the host PC.

Recommended Software of the Week – Picasa 2

Posted in Fun Stuff, Graphics, Site News, Utilities, Web Apps, Windows


Picasa 2 was initially developed by Google three years ago and released as a free software. In spite of this, Picasa is still one of the most popular and useful photo album around to manage photos and pictures located in the PC’s hard disk drive.

Picasa is not just a image library, it also include editing tools for enhancing photo images. For example, Fill Light is a tuning tool that brightens or darkens picture that contains dark backgrounds (e.g. someone with his back to the sun).

Picasa is definitely recommended software of the week. You should have it as long as you have digital photos and purchasing professional softwares, such as Adobe Photoshop, become expensive.

Picasa can be downloaded here.

Posted in Fun Stuff, Graphics, Mac OS, Site News, Utilities


In contrast to the previous post made about video resizing, this is an image resizer for Mac OS X, known as iResizer 1.2.1. This application is a simple program which allows users to resize image files and photos according to specific preferences.

Some of the configurations which can be adjusted are:

  • set output size, which can be set by width or height and by long or short side,
  • save resized images in different formats, e.g. JPEG, PNG, GIF, BMP and TIFF,
  • giving resized file a new sequential name.

The software is a small utility, but it is definitely very useful in resizing image files in a quick fashion. It is written in Cocoa/Objective-C language, and is programmed for Mac OS X 10.3 or later.
