Pasang GIMP 2.8 RC 1 Pada Ubuntu

Bagi mereka yang baru kepada Ubuntu, GIMP ialah sebuah perisian yang setara dengan Photoshop. Biarpun tiada fungsi terbaru seperti Photoshop CS6 iaitu fungsi penyuntingan video, GIMP boleh dikatakan cukup dengan fungsi penyuntingan gambar yang mampu menghasilkan gambar yang hebat.


Versi 2.8 bakal menyaksikan beberapa perubahan pada fungsi dan antaramuka GIMP. Setakat ini, 2.8 tidak akan dilepaskan kepada umum melainkan telah diuji dan dicuba oleh pembangun terlebih dahulu. Bagi mereka yang tidak sabar untuk mencubanya, anda boleh muat turun skrip pemasang pada pautan di bawah:

GIMP Git Installer For Ubuntu

Sila jadikan fail skrip itu sebagai 'executable'. Jika anda menggunakan Nautilus, jalan yang mudah adalah dengan klik kanan pada fail tersebut > Pilih Properties > Permissions > Allow executing file as program.

Setelah itu jalankan fail itu dan ikut sahaja arahan yang tertera. [Run in Terminal]

Antara pembaharuan yang bakal dibawakan ialah:
Single-Window Mode optionally displays all images and dockable dialogs in one window instead of several (which remains the default).

Layer Groups allow layers to be organized in tree-like structures.

Editing text with the Text Tool is now performed on-canvas instead of in a separate window.

Mixing different text styles in the same layer is now possible.

Saving and exporting are now separate activities. Saving an image can only be done in GIMP's native XCF format.

Size entries allow simple mathematical expressions, like "50%", "30in + 40px" or "4 * 5.4in".

The brush dynamics engine has been expanded considerably, making almost all aspects of the brush engine drivable by a multitude of inputs, all of them configurable with their own response curve.

State of tools is now savable as presets with meaningful names.

A completely new Cage transform tool has been added, implementing an innovative approach to free transformation which makes it possible to easily warp parts of objects using an adjustable user-defined polygonal frame.

New widgets, configuration and other improvements for users of advanced input devices (e.g. tablets).

It is now possible to tag GIMP resources such as brushes and patterns.

Lots of other minor improvements and bugfixes.
