Tutorial on GIMP (01 How to open xcf file)
Hi,

This week I want to write a simple tutorial on using GIMP to open the xcf file. I attached some files with xcf extension in my old posts. You can use a program "GIMP" to open them. GIMP is a open source software to manipulate image files. GIMP is free to use and you can find it from http://www.gimp.org/

After installation, you can find GIMP icon. You can click on it and open it.

The default interface is a multi-window interface. (01.jpg)

I used to use the single window interface. You can change it from the main menu -> Windows -> Single-Window Mode. (02.jpg)

Now we have a single window to play with! (03.jpg)

You can open the xcf file with main menu -> File -> Open... (04.jpg)

I attached a test file for you to test. You can download it to your computer. (01 GIMP test file.xcf)

After you click “Open...”, the “open image” window is shown. You can choose the file location and click the "Open" button. (05.jpg)

The file is opened! Sun Shine! :D (06.jpg)

It is great! Oh??? You ask me what is the different between GIMP and other image viewer? GIMP is not only an image viewer. We can draw in GIMP. You can find “Paintbrush Tool” and “Eraser Tool” from the Tool box. (The Tool box is on the left side of GIMP) (07.jpg)

I will write another tutorials on GIMP later. If you can't wait, you can try them yourself first. :)

See you later.

又見面了!這星期我會簡單介紹一下用GIMP這軟件打開xcf檔案的方法。我在之前的貼文中附上了一些xcf檔案,你可以用GIMP這軟件開啟它們。GIMP是一個開源軟件,使用它是免費的,你可以在 http://www.gimp.org/ 找到它。

安裝它之後,你會找到它的圖標,雙擊滑鼠打開它吧!

GIMP預設的介面是多視窗的。(01.jpg)

我習慣了用單視窗介面,你可以在主選單中更改它, 主選單 -> Windows -> Single-Window Mode (02.jpg)

我們可以開始使用GIMP了! (03.jpg)

你可以按下 主選單 -> file -> Open... 來打開xcf檔案。 (04.jpg)

我附上了一個測試檔案,你可以把它下載到你的電腦。 (01 GIMP test file.xcf)

按下“Open...”後,“open image”視窗會彈出,你可以選檔案的位置,然後按"Open"按鈕。(05.jpg)

檔案打開了!陽光! :D (06.jpg)

很好呢!啊???你問我GIMP和其他看圖軟件有什麼不同?GIMP不止是一個看圖軟件,我們還可以在它中繪畫。你會在GIMP的"工具箱"處找到“Paintbrush Tool”(畫筆) 及“Eraser Tool”(橡皮刷)。你可以在GIMP的左方找"工具箱"。(07.jpg)

我遲些會再寫點關於GIMP的教程,不過如果你想立即開始,你可以自己試試這些工具的啊!:)
