“M” is for moo-cow! I love it!
I really enjoy watching and learning from your videos. Thank you for doing them.
And I have to agree with sippycup333, your accent is adorable!

iaregustavorico says:

I like this. :).

hootypatootie says:

You have great tutorials, the pace is good, things are explained well. I think the best thing about your tutorials is that you explain what you’re doing and why you’re doing it, then encourage viewers to mess around with it. The best way to learn GIMP is by experimenting – they can try it the way you did in the video, and they can change it up a bit, see how that looks. Nice job on this one and all of the tutorials, thank you!

BTW, what’s a lomo effect? No, I already looked it up. Next time! 😛

TheControlsGuy says:

excellent videos; appreciate the detail on keyboard short-cuts, etc along the way; nice pace too; can you do something to demonstrate your take on HDR in the GIMP?; particularly from a single RAW image? great work; cheers!

malgalin says:

but knowing how to do it yourself is way cooler 🙂 Why limit yourself to somebody else’s process? Where’s the creativity in that?

januarysdawn says:

But there’s a lomo script for gimp. You don’t have to do all this.

@FlyVzla ctrl+L

@sippycup333 See what I mean? (No offence, FlyVzla!)

FlyVzla says:

how do i open the tool box on the right!!! i cant open it =/ some help me

malgalin says:

Thanks for the feedback. If you could see the private messages I receive daily, you would understand why I go into so much detail. I would love it if people treated my whole collection of videos as a curriculum and only tried the more complex stuff after the basics, but the truth is most people just want to do something cool right away, so I try to cater for all the ability levels in one vid.

sippycup333 says:

Cool tutorial. I am glad I subscribed to your channel man. I have been noticing a lot of photos using the color curves for that vintage look lately. I disagree though with the other people saying that the pace is good though. You kind of dragged it out. If people don’t know how to find the curves dialog they should be watching tutorials less complicated. The only reason I could listen so long is your charming accent. 🙂

TheMarabouStork says:

#OMG thanks 🙂

A'Liah Merchant says:

M for Moo Cow XD Thanks for the tutorial 🙂

A plastic cow…. in a tree… in Australia… Even if I didn’t care about the tutorial (which I did) it would have been worth watching. Thanks, I always like your tutorials.
