I'm starting to use the GIMP more and more

I don't know if it's because the new GIMP 2.8.0 is in Debian Wheezy, or because I'm working on more multi-layered images, or because I'm less happy with my go-to image-editing application gThumb, but I'm using the GIMP -- the GNU Image Manipulation Program more and more.

I'm working in the GIMP's native .xcf format and exporting as .jpg or .png when my image is ready. To get better at using the GIMP, I really should get No Starch Press' The Artist's Guide to GIMP, Second Edition: Creative Techniques for Photographers, Artists, and Designers by Michael J. Hammel. No Starch has another GIMP book coming out in October: The Book of GIMP.
