    By the way I can not get the index page finished until I know what's inside. =P

    I now have Canvas version 11 so i will be using that to merge all the pages.

    Cyril, can you manage the cover, and maybe 1 sig tutorial page?
    The sig tutorial will be the main tutorial for the first issue i think everyone could use something like that as Baum has already stated.
    Whatever you guys think is cool with me though.

    Baum, i think 2 tutorials will be good for now.Maybe you can save the others for issue 2?
    Good work btw. That will give us one main tut and 2 smaller ones.

    Maybe we can use PhotoMasters puzzle tut in a future issue?
    This issue will tell us what our readers will want i think.After the readers viewpoints we can then go from there.
    Find out what they really want to see in the mag.Get ready Maffe, your gonna get loads of questions i am thinking.

    David can I upload the PDF and HTML pages here? Maybe then folks can just download it from here also.If that's an issue I can use my server.What would be cool is to have the readers come here to dl, and ask questions and add input.maybe a forum area just for the magazine tidbits.

    Maffe, can you finish up a credits page for everyone who submits a tutorial, links to whatever they want links to, and credits for the mag creation peeps?

    Also i have another logo ready, same image no bg color for optimization on all colors.That way whatever color Cyril wants to use on the cover the logo will look good on it....I hope.

    Just another thing real quick, we need word of mouth once the first issue launches...places to post the dl links.Get the news out sorta speak.
    I am going to ask the folks at Gimp Registry, and Gimp.org if we can add the link on their sites.I'll add one to my site too.

    In your sigs on other forums..
    Email others
    Your own websites
    Tell everyone you know.

    Wait till we launch though! =)

    Rod, before you ask at least Gimp.org, lets get a few issue out first, so they know we won't just fail and stop. ;)

    Seems to be one small defect, you can fix that in Gimp though. =)
    The small line under the image...dunno where it came from.

    Hey Rod, I gotta go to bed. I'll do it tomorrow. I'm wondering though, if you could make the scroll at the bottom a nice brown wood texture, and change the bow to something different. Maybe white would look good if you make the scroll to brown. :D

    Bow-tie in brown I suppose, and the thing in wooden as Cyril said.

    Also, we could have an own webspace for the magazine .. I only know bplaced, free and with 2GB space. I don't know whether somebody would pay for a real .com adress.

    @Rod:
    I've got one big tutorial about .. layer masks then (3 pages) and two quick tips about the rule of thirds and adding new canvas size templates(1 page together).
    Next issue will have gradient maps (3 pages) + either clipping masks (3-4 pages) or another 2 quick tips (1-2 pages)
    I think that's okay for you.

    @Cyril:
    Do you really want to have a signature tutorial section? So we divide the tutorial section up into two?



    Also, we should have at least a shared font. The one I used in my 7 pages yet is "Sawasdee", wich comes with debian and isn't downloadable from dafont etc. I could upload it for you, and then we would have got an own font that only a few people know.

    I love it because it's slim and easy, yet not boring.
    It's for non-commercial use only, but we won't sell the magazine anyway.
