Abstract

I am a sports photographer, but have minimal image editing software experience. At an event I take hundreds of images at each event. My post processing workflow is minimal, only making slight exposure and sharpening adjustments. For my final project in CSE 617, I had to create a tutorial on an open source software tool. I chose the image editing package, GIMP. As one of the most popular open source software products, there is no lack information about GIMP. I didn't want to repeat fundamental information that is easy to find online. Instead, I focused on sharing things that I had to work to find out. I didn't want to create a lesson on ‘how to install', or use the rectangle select tool. Instead I wanted to share information I learned that gave me results I especially liked. I wanted to be able to share that professional results are available from an open source tool. You see this type of training for Adobe Photoshop, like from Scott Kelby. There is not as much for GIMP. I found it very effective to learn through creating teaching material. I used Moodle to house my technique tutorials: http://moodle.wou.edu/course/view.php?id=3765
