Thanks so much for your contribution!  I downloaded the PDF and ODT copy.
I plan on going through it and learning about it :D

I finally finished the tutorial that I was talking about with you a couple
of months ago.  You mentioned then that I could either send it in Word
Processor format or take attempt to convert it to HTML.

Which of the two methods would be easiest for you?  I am not sure if it is
easier to fix a document that I might get partially 'right' or just start
from scratch.  Maybe you could take a look at it and give me your opinion
on the best way to proceed.

I have it on a share at

You should see the file AutomateEditingInGimp.odt and the corresponding
.pdf file.  It was written using LibreOffice Writer.  The jpeg pictures in

I was able to get html directly out of Writer that looked real good in
Firefox, I just don't know if some of the tags might cause problems within
the help system.  If not, the job could be easy!  One problem that I did
notice with the automatically generated html was that the images were no
longer centered, but other than this issue, it looked good, and the links
seemed to work.  If you want me to generate a copy of the html, let me

The tutorial is kind of long, wish I could have made it shorter, but since
it uses some Gimp features that aren't documented elsewhere, I had to
expand on them.

Anyway, let me know if there are issues or feedback and whether you think
it would be better for you to format the tutorial or if you want me to take
a first pass at it.

That sounds great.  I will plan to write in a word processor (with a
spell checker) & then dump it into bluefish to add the html tags.  If
works it should make the whole authoring process pretty
straightforward.  I
would prefer to stay in a word processor form rough to final draft &
minimize editing of the html for of the document in order to avoid
accidentally goofing up the closures.

I am on my way out of town for a couple of days as well, I will touch
base again when I get closer to a finished tutorial.

Just stick to clean, plain HTML and you should be fine. Style inline if
you want, I'll move it to an external style sheet anyway.

You can publish screen grabs if gimp non problem I believe. Someone may
correct me.

I'll be out of town for a few days, but just hit me up when you're
for testing.
