Image Tools

Purrr An FYI, I have used a number of image tools over the years. After 2005 or so I used Photoshop, then switched to the GNU Image Manipulation Program (GIMP). They are very similar and in GIMP you can customize the hotkeys to match PS as well as use a plugin to run PS plugins. Because GIMP is open source, there is a lot of community involvement, including tutorials and plugins. I highly recommend it.

GIMP is a cross-platform image editor available for GNU/Linux, OS X, Windows and more operating systems. It is free software, you can change its source code and distribute your changes.

Whether you are a graphic designer, photographer, illustrator, or scientist, GIMP provides you with sophisticated tools to get your job done. You can further enhance your productivity with GIMP thanks to many customization options and 3rd party plugins.

I have tagged posts with the filetype if I made the images, and by creator name if I didn't and I know who did. I welcome additions and corrections.

Do you remember @FrugalDougal's #pawpawty? @emmythecat

Purrr #pawpawty is why I got really interested in twitter! It was a pawty for animal charities and was the predecessor to pawties like #nipclub - in fact some #nipclub staff members - myself included - are old #pawpawty staff.

Please feel free to comment and correct me. I joined twitter in June, 2009 so I don't know details of who was in charge of what before that. @Fergusthedog, @brutusthedane and @snickthedog are names that come to mind but I'm not sure when they joined.

#pawpawty supported many charities while in operation and provided over $50,000 in funding.

@FrugalDougal and @emmythecat held the very first PawPawty on 17th March, 2009. Theme was "St Paws" for St. Patrick’s day. At that first #PawPawty Dougal and Emmy raised $1071 US for a charity called Animals in Distress, part of @Romeothecat’s FurPower Challenge Programme.

Over time, the PawPawty organizers worked out how to make pawpawty like a real party, with Bartenders serving virtual drinks, DJs playing tunes to get everyone on the dance floor, QuizMasters who run the scavenger hunts and the Sekurity Team who kept partygoers safe - sometimes from themselves.

There was even a #PawPawty Store where anipals could get #PawPawty Merch for their humans, designed by @Javathecat and his team.
