Wow, that was short…
So I was excited to get back into Ubuntu mode last night and tried using Gimp (modified with Gimpshop to make it somewhat familiar) to create a post card for my wife’s upcoming solo art show. Lo and behold, Gimp seems to be a rather unstable little beast. I’m not sure if it is Gimp or the Gimpshop mods that make it bork, but I would get random crashes whenever I opened up a few large-ish files (about 5MB each…hardly anything out of the ordinary for compositing work). So back over to Windows I run to use Photoshop.
Also, my experimentation with Rhythmbox album art embedding didn’t go too well either. I’m back over in Windows using iTunes (of all things!) to manually copy album art from the iTunes crappish randomly named separate file debacle and pasting them in the ID3 tag using iTunes’ UI since it actually works.
Well, maybe after I get a few of these fires put out I’ll head back over to Ubuntu land for some more experimentation. There simply has to be a better way.
