Suggestions Needed
Hello,
I am new to Gimp and could use your suggestions on what I need and how to set things up. The main function of this program for me is to get my Tiff images ready to be shown on my website and/or printed. I use a Canon 1Ds mkii and shoot in the raw format and then use DPP to convert to Tiff.
My images consist of B&W, color as well as converting some of them to Photo-art. For the painting aspects I have Paint X as well as PE4 but read somewhere that Gimp also has a painting feature. My B&W images are going to have a Selenium tone applied to them but at the moment I can't find an easy method of doing this. I used to use CS2 which had a Selenium preset that was excellent for my needs but I don't have access to it any more so I need to start over.
These are the basic things I want to do with my images and knowing this are there any plug-ins, scripts whatever, you can suggest to help facilitate my efforts as well as make Gimp easier and more efficient to work with. Thank you for any and all help.

Tim

RE: Suggestions Needed
Thank you paynekj. I read your post and it was very helpful. There are a number of plug-ins etc that are worthwhile having on Gimp to increase efficiency and accomplish other tasks. By outlining my needs I am hoping that others who use Gimp in a similar manner might suggest these scripts, plug-ins etc. Once again, thank you.
