3 great sites for GIMP tutorials.

The GNU Image Manipulation Program (GIMP) is one of the most powerful free graphics applications around. It is a great alternative to the legendary Photoshop from Adobe and other closed source graphics suite. However, one of the greatest challenges facing the GIMP is a lack of clear cut tutorials especially for beginners.
There are some really great GIMP text books out there but most of them in my view, are targeted more to those familiar with it than newbies. The following 3 sites  have great user submitted GIMP tutorials that are sure to meet the needs of both beginners and advanced users.
This site is neatly laid out for easy navigation through the tutorials. You can favorite a tutorial, subscribe to their RSS to be informed of new tutorials and also share any tutorial you like with friends on the various social networks.
Similar to Gimpology, this site also features an impressive list of user submitted tutorials from users of GIMP.
This site features video tutorials for those who love to learn through audio-visuals.
These are three of my personal GIMP picks for GIMP tutorials especially for beginners. If you know of any, just let me know and I will add them.

The Linux Gamers’ Game List- A massive directory of Linux games

One of the greatest challenges faced by Linux is the perceived luck of games for the platform. There are however, hundreds if not thousands of games out there that run perfectly on the Linux platform which only need to be discovered and enjoyed. One sure way of discovering such games is the Linux Gamers Gaming List.
The Linux Gamers’ Gaming List is a very comprehensive list of over 350 Linux games (at the time of writing this post) ranging from cards to arcade to action. I found the list very comprehensive and easy to navigate. They also accept entries from the general public or publishers and ‘reserve the right to refuse games that suck.’ So you can be rest assured that every game on that list is of good standard and you are sure to find a game that will satisfy your taste.
So if you are thinking of  finding a good game on Linux to play, then the Linux Gamers Game List is a must visit. What other Linux game directory do you know of? Please share with us.
