This tutorial explains how to change the palette of an image, and goes over scripting it too! Oooer! Scheme? ugh!
GIMP Tutorial – Arwen Icon
Here’s a very detailed tutorial showing how to create a beautiful avator icon from a photo in the GIMP. Lurvely! Lots more icon stuff in the noldo icons community too!
Lots and lots of tutorials here. Many of them come from Gimp Talk.
Simple Vignetting using The GIMP
Vignetting is usually something to be avoided, but this tutorial shows how it can be effective in creating a stronger image.
GIMP Preview – the why and what of it

Corpus Christi on Pana
Here’s a panoramic photo I assembled from 2 shots at the Corpus Christi Procession on Sunday. I created the photo with the help of Panoramic Stitch which I mentioned a few days ago. It did a very good job, especially when you consider the foreground. I can’t imagine what kind […]
GIMP Digital Camera Noise Filter
This filter is rather new (only announced last March) but some of the examples look good: before and after shots show a striking difference. Peter Heckert posted some instructions in this thread relating to usage so I may try it.

In the development version you can drag and drop those thumbnails to a “XDS” compatible file manager to save them! Unfortunately, neither Nautilus or Konqueror support that feature yet, but Rox-Filer does!
