I developed this course on Gimp to teach my colleagues about the differences in file formats, and basic image editing. It also includes a teaser for Inkscape and vector graphics. The workshop is about 2 hours long. I start with a lecture on image file types, including color, transparency, and image quality due to compression method. Then I lead step-by-step demos using Gimp and provide time for attendees to practice the techniques on their own images. I wrap it up by discussing resolution as it relates to images viewed on screen and images that will be printed. If you have any questions, let me know and I can add the answers to this page for future reference.
