For some reason this post is affected by a blogger bug, that is preventing me from deleting old posts, it survived the big clean in 2016, and it seems like it will be hanging out for a while here.

Great Start Menu Launcher

Hello There , welcome to another techtip
Today we will be discussing the FSL Launcher , a Start menu type launcher that Displays your short cuts , files and other data in a tabbed dock .

My review of it is 4/5 , it's good , but can go better , for example some functions are limited only for the subscribers , but even the free version can be very handy .
I also noticed that it does not handle Program Files Shortcuts right away , in 64 bit you have two of them but the program only launched the ones installed in the same program files with it , in that case  program files (x86) , so you need to edit that shortcut manually , when it does not launch it freezes until you press the OK under the Icons , and the icon is displayed without the Picture .
That bug was on Windows 7 64 Bit
Tell us what you think :)

Add Photoshop plugins to Gimp 2.8 + FREE Compatible plug-ins inside

Good day, and welcome to another tech tip, today we will be improving the amazing gimp a little bit more, by adding third-party plugins originally made for Photoshop using the Pspi plug-in.

for information on installing this plugin go to this guide which demonstrates how to do it very easily!!

Of course all the 30 plug-ins we are about to add are free of charge and the are copyright of their respective owners, but i packed, tested, and uploaded them, so if you want to refer to it, please use my link (or give me a better one than use it :).
Just extract the plug-in (compressed in .7Z file format for smaller more efficient size and download speed), all compatible and tested on gimp 2.8  [windows XP Sp3] to the directory of your choice, mine was "C:\Program Files\GIMP 2.8\PSplugins\".

-As you may notice i changed the default install directory from 2.0 to 2.8 to make it more oblivious for me-, and i put the the plug-ins inside gimp for organizing purposes only but you can put them anywhere you may, note that if you relocate or alter the plug-ins they will not work until you browse for them again then restart gimp.
 in this picture you will notice a green dot next to the option (Photoshop plug-ins), because gimp has detected them and when you remove them "he" will no longer be able to read them.

Under the filters menu you will see rather than the individual plug-ins company names, such as xero and flaming pear in our case, which under you will find the plug-ins ready for use, as in the image .

and you are set, but am sure that you are aching to test new plug-ins, or your old ones from your Photoshop days, i encourage you to do so, but here is some VERY useful tips:
  • If you click the plug-in and it does nothing at all, that means it does not work, and if it comes with an error message that means it will not work also.
  • Try to add the plug-ins one at a time, because you will be in for a load of work if you don't!
Here i urge you to add any plug-ins you know that they work with gimp 2.8, the ones you guys tested,(free of course) i will add them with credits to you of course and with YOUR link, not mine, and i will update this as regular as possible.
Thank you for reading, i hope you both enjoyed and learned something today, please comment to keep the steam rolling.
Finally we come to the part we all like, yeah! the FREE DOWNLOAD bit. plugins download link.
P.S: as mentioned in this post, and add to the gimp will add seconds to the program's loading time.
To access the full screen mode just press F11.

Fix the Resolution problem on netbooks

Gimp 2.8 Problem solved!!

Hey there you guys? 

How are you today?

I hope you are doing great!


Tested OS: Windows XP SP3  MS Office 2003 Enterprise, Gimp 2.8 RC1
If you installed the amazing Gimp 2.8 and enjoyed working on it as much as i did, you would be interested in reading this, Gimp 2.8 crashes, loads for a split second and then vanishes, even if you view the process in task manager, you will see it for a split second and then it goes out..
What is causing this?
The Reason for this is Office 2003, apparently there is a font issue that is causing this bug, and it's yet to be fixed (at the point of the post), so if you are a die-hard gimp fan you will be forced to make a choice between the two, (That is office and Gimp)
Tip: You can use Open Office, almost as good, absolutely free of charge.
As soon you uninstall the Office 2003 suit and reinstall gimp 2.8, it will work normally.
And That is it..
Please Comment and thank you for reading.
Have a wonderful day.
