Le Divan Fumoir Bohémien is a favorite blog of mine. It's a French blog that posts beautiful photography, wallpaper patterns, still life presentations, and so much more, and it will really expand your creative imagination. Even if you don't speak the language this site is well worth a visit.

I found this article about gamma error in picture scaling (via slashdot.org). This article provides a lot of facts and information about image scaling and at the end of it the autor provides also a solution for GIMP, but it is probably not a very interesting read for someone who doesn't know much (or cares) about the theoretical aspects of image manipulation.

I often go to the Logo of the Day website, both to find inspiration and to laugh over some of the designs :) Because designing a good-looking and meaningful logo is not an easy task, even though it can look deceptively easy on the surface. There is so much to think about, like the message you want to bring across and the kind of emotions you want to evoke in people. It's very similar to designing small desktop or website icons; you want to say as much as possible, but you only have so much space. Very tricky indeed.

So, my question goes to the community: Ever tried your hands on logo or icon design with GIMP? Or is GIMP not the best tool for this kind of creative work? Any thoughts?
