Hey guys, I'm trying to pull together a group on YouTube called Famous YT Gimpers, a group comprised of most of the larger Gimp channels. If the other channels join, great! It may get big.
For one, I've been back from DC for a while now. I need to close the epic thumbnail contest, congratulations to Gimper165. I need to update the thumbnail, among other things, but just letting you know, that probably won't happen for a good few days. -GKH
*Yawn* Alright, I deleted the main page of the forums, however the recent post bar still contains posts in case any of you want to finish up conversations. It will require you to re-register, however, it's all up and running. I used a Java 301 redirect, so please have Java enabled. (Most people already do). When you click on Forums, it should take a second, then redirect you to Gimptv.freeforums.org. The recent posts bar will be deleted in 3 days.
It's time to move forums... Alright, Gimptv.freeforums.org is now open for business. You'll have to re-register there, and I'm in the process of moving a few key threads over there. In the meantime, I have work to do.
The new categories that were suggested have been created.
Alright, they have been back up for a long time, I was just too lazy to update.
NEWS: I am coming out with a series called Gimp 101. It will be a video detailing Gimp, explaining layers, paths, and other functions and need-to-know skills.
Thanks to FWT, he did an excellent job! We will have it available for download shortly.
The domain name now works, and I am going to remove the banner. (Opening banner)
The domain name will go live in 24 hours. Also, all ads have been deleted. No more annoying rollover ads. Some pretty funky stuff may go on when the domain name is being transferred from my godaddy server to freewebs.
I guess not all tutorials will have thumbnails... Sorry, but transferring a domain is tricky business. The banner will have the opening sign removed... -GKH
Gimptv.net will be down while GimpKnowHow completely erases the video system, and resubmits most of the tutorials. All videos will now be in one channel: All Tutorials. The submit tutorial request button will go away, and be replaced with a tutorial request forum in the Forums. The Submit a Video button will be reworked to "How to Submit a Video". The Opening Soon banner will be taken down, and the .net domain name will be applied. The forums will undergo some changes, there will be another section to discuss ALL tutorials, and the GimpKnowHow's tutorials will be taken away. Remember, I am trying to even the playing field between me and all other submitters. There will be a new thumbnail available for download. (For embedded videos). This should all happen this week.
Also, the banner has undergone a minor contrast fix. It was more red that I wanted it, but .png didn't support this orange color. It is now .jpg.
A new banner to go with the .net name. We should get the .net name up soon, be patient! -GKH
I hope to buy www.gimptv.net by the end of the month. I'll let you know when we are up and running. When I buy the domain name, I will receive Google Adwords credits, so I should be able to advertise. Whether or not a new theme appears, is up to how much money I make this month, and if my partnership application gets accepted with YouTube.
Heres to Gimptv.net - The official Video Tutorial website of the GNU Image Manipulation Program.
I am now actively posting in the blog... Check it out. You can subscribe to the RSS Feed.
The bug is fixed. All new members can now post on the forums. ACI submitted another great tutorial in HD. Check it out.
Only non-limited members can access the forums at this time. All new members will be demoted to limited members to prevent a certain someone from ransacking the forums like that certain someone has been doing for the past hour. This is to prevent him from making any new accounts with access to the forums. Thanks for your understanding!
Gimp.tv. I emphasize more on users uploading their own videos, as well as me uploading mine.
So far what I am doing:
I am equalizing my and other submitters rights. No more annoying UVTSP tag in front of your video. I am promoting the submitters channels. I am in the process of merging all channels. (This is very tedious, so probably won't be done) The UVTSP has been replaced with "submit a video". The submit tutorial request is the same, but now all requests will be posted on the forums.
The videos now have cover art.
ANYONE can comment on videos now. (Not just members). Seriously. ANYONE can.
PERHAPS a blog will be added.
Ironically, you can now get to this site through gimptv.tk, gimptv.co.nr, and www.gimpknowshow.webs.com, but not from gimp.tv... Perhaps I will buy a domain name, but not now.
You can now add friends and PM people. I really need a person to design all of the new banners, I am getting tired of making a banner per week... Also, the tiled background has been removed. Although it looked cool, the website should now render faster... It has been slow in the past... And for some reason the header text keeps turning green when I want it to be blue! -GKH
I'll give you a hint. It involves fire. The fire is animated. It is not directly animated fire. (Meaning the tutorial is not JUST about animated fire). That is all.
I have Tutorial(er)'s block. I can't think of anything to make a tutorial on. On another note, AcornComicsInc submitted another great UVTSP. I also now have a twitter. -GKH
I have been inactive of late... Anyway, new tutorial out. In high quality. Has anyone else noticed discussion stalling?
No new banner this week. (How do you make a background from a layout??!!)
First off, in the forums, you may now edit your posts within the next ten minutes of posting them. In addition, I will be coming out with a 25 minute long tutorial on how to create a YouTube layout, all by yourself. 25 minutes is fairly rough, it could be as much as 40. As you can imagine, we will be going into depth. I already have the technique down, and would be posting one if not for the fact that when recording the tutorial, I had my microphone switched off. I still don't know why my tutorials aren't coming out in high quality.
The title says it all, folks. The podcast has been deleted; too much work for 5 subscribers.
FreeWillTutorials submitted our first UVTSP. Check it out in the videos section.
I know I said tomorrow. But LOST was on. It's impossible for me not to watch lost. Anyway, check it out in the video gallery. -GKH
I know the portal's logo isn't just like a certain search engines... For one, the text is too thick, and the shadow is far too strong. Oh well. I didn't want to download another font file, and the practice is the same. The tutorial will be available some time tomorrow. Regards - GKH
It is a portal exclusive / podcast. Take a swing by the video tutorial section and check it out!
You may have noticed the banner changed...Again. This is because I am implementing a new system where the banner will contain my current tutorial in it, along with some previous tutorials. Sorry Acorn, but the life of your banner has regrettably been cut short. Hope you like this one I whipped up quick! Remember, it will change often, and every time it does, a new tutorial is out! UVTSP is now added! Check it out!
Hello again, everybody. I haven't submitted any tutorials in a while, but I think this will make up for it. I am coming out with the GKH podcast. It will be auto pan, of course. (If I did it fullscreen you couldn't see at all.) I am submitting it to iTunes, I just have to make my first tutorial. Now, I am pretty much bogged down with all the tutorials I have to do, one for youtube, one for here, and one for my podcast. So, I am now only submitting a tutorial to youtube once every two weeks. I believe there is only one other Gimp podcast out there, and I think it is audio only. -GKH
I made some spelling errors that were corrected. For example, Jafler won the "Bear me" contest, instead of the "Beat me" contest. The submit tutorial request form was updated again, you now do not have to be a mamber of the site, you can also be a subscriber. I took out the "Did you like this form" option, because people were giving it 5's just to try to get their tutorial done. NO SIGNATURE REQUESTS. I've had like 12. Seriously. The Other Information page has been updated. Anyway, thats all the updated made I can think of. -GKH
Congratulations AcornComicsInc, the community voted -- and your banner won! I also updated the text colors so they don't clash with Acorn's colors. Thank you to everyone who voted and participated!
Congratulations to Jafler for winning the beat me contest. His YouTube account is asitaarka2.
My birthday was on the 20th. Anyway, the submit tutorial request form was updated. You now must enter in your username instead of your email, that was it is easier to keep track of who submitted the request. You now MUST be a member of the website to use the form. Thanks, GimpKnowHow
Make sure to place your vote for your favorite banner! The thread is listed in the contests catagory.
As some of you have noticed, the avatars are NOT rendering. I have already filed a support form with webs and am looking into the problem. -GimpKnowHow
Hey guys, sorry for the wait on my spirals tutorial. It was being stubborn. Anyway, the tutorial is now released. Also, if I already have that tutorial out, don't ask for it on the submit tutorial request form. i only get 25 submissions a month.
Hello GimpKnowHow's portal. I have recently uploaded two tutorials, one on youtube, one only on this website. The one exclusive to the website is how to make spirals, or paths of light that circle around a render, the youtube tutorial is how to make a Van Gough like background. This will become available tomorrow, sorry for the wait. Enjoy -GimpKnowHow
Firstly, errors are happening all the time. Sorry. I have no control. Its webs. If someone will pitch in 200$ for Vbulliten I will buy a domain name and we will all have a great time. Seeing as how no one will do this, webs is pretty much my only option.
Next: Moderators. I have two moderators, TangyFruity, and AcornComicsInc. I picked them because they were the first to really post in the forum and they both are very civil. If you didn't get picked that means that I only have room for two mods at the moment (otherwise EVERYONE who posted would be mods).
Lastly, I have a new contest out in the forum, along with another catagory.
Ratings from 1-10 are now installed in the Archived Video Library. Give me some feedback if the ratings should be adjusted. I tried to rate them being 1 = Incredibly Easy, 10 = Very Difficult. I tried to rate these videos according to someone just familiar with Gimp. Feedback, please!
Exclusive tutorials will become available shortly. In my last website, I failed to impliment these, however, in this one, I will. The site will be promoted in YouTube shortly. Please become a member. Anyone can look at these tutorials, only members can comment on them. Members also can post in the forum. -GimpKnowHow
Some people have been experiencing difficulty when attempting to register for the site. Due to my server being slow, the confirmation emails that are sent out after you register may take a few hours to get to your inbox. Sorry for the trouble. -GimpKnowHow
As of Friday, December 26th, this site is officially created. At this site you can find exclusive tutorials, and all the other tutorials you can find on YouTube. -GimpKnowHow
