PySIG                    Manchester, NH                22 September 2011
                 GIMP, Presented by Paul Beaudet
  GIMP is a very powerful Photoshop(R)-like application for such
  tasks as photo retouching, image composition and image creation
  --and GIMP is free and open source software: completely free to
  download and use.
  GIMP is used by children and professionals alike, and is even
  used by Hollywood movie-makers.
  If you've been itching to retouch, modify, or enhance your digital
  photos, then this program is for you.
  Learn how to:
    o Make color corrections (make your digital photos look more
      like film photos)
    o Use Curves and Cloning to enhance and modify your photos.
    o Apply Layers and Channels (Paul will provide a detailed
      explanation of Layers and when and how to use them)
    o Sharpen, blur, remove red-eye, and much, much more.

About PySIG:
    PySIG meetings are typically 10-20 people, around a large table
    equipped with a projector and Internet hookups (wired and
    wireless).  We encourage laptops and a hands-on seminar style.
    The main meeting starts at 7 PM; officially we finish circa 9 PM.  
    Everyone is welcome.  ("Membership" is anyone who has an interest
    in the Python progamming language, whether on Microsoft systems
    or Linux or OS X; or cell phones, mainframes, or space stations.
    We have everyone  from object-oriented gurus to recovering COBOL
    programmers.)  Tell your friends!
Beginners' session:
    The half hour before the formal meeting (i.e., starting at 6:30PM)
    we have a beginners' session.  Any Python question is welcome -- 
    whoever asks the first question gets the half hour!  Questions are
    equally welcome by mail beforehand (in which case we can announce
    them) or at the meeting.  (As are all Python questions, anytime.)

About Python:
    "Python is a dynamic object-oriented programming language that
    can be used for many kinds of software development. It offers 
    strong support for integration with other languages and tools, 
    comes with extensive standard libraries, and can be learned
    in a few days.  Many Python programmers report substantial 
    productivity gains and feel the language encourages the 
    development of higher quality, more maintainable code."

    "NASA uses Python...so does Rackspace, Industrial Light&Magic,
    AstraZeneca, Honeywell, and many others."

    Google: "Python has been an important part of Google since the
    beginning, and remains so as the system grows and evolves." 
    -Peter Norvig

    PySIG NH meetings are held at the ABI Hub, 33 South Commercial
    Street, Manchester, NH.

    Coming in to Manchester using I-293, from the north:
        o Use Exit 5 ("Granite Street") from I-293.  Stay to the left
          at the bottom of the ramp, to turn left (east). Go under
          I-293 and cross the bridge over the Merrimack River.
    Coming in to Manchester using I-293, from the south:
        o Use the Granite Street exit.  Turn right (east).  Go under
          I-293 and cross the bridge over the Merrimack River.

    After crossing the bridge:
        o Turn right (south) at the first light.  This is South
          Commercial Street.

        o Go past one parking-lot entrance, turn right into the second
          one.  33 Commercial Street will be right in front of you.  
          You may go in via either the ramp or the door and up three
          steps inside.

        o Inside.  Up the stairs if via the door.  Go through the
          glass doors - follow the diamonds on the floor.  Go left 
          at the last diamond.   (Under a sign which says 
              "<- Amoskeag Small Bus. Incubator").

        o More diamonds, another sign...  much glass and office
          space for SNHU; turn left there, 4 more diamonds and 
          you're at the glass doors for the Incubator.  An "abi"
          sign is above.

        o Through the doors, straight down the hall.  The Conference
          Room is on the left.
