Finished up the page borders for Escape from Tentacle City. This was made difficult by the fact that Ubuntu doesn’t have a good Paint type program. Sure, it’s got Gimp, but that has way too many bells and whistles and distractions. I downloaded about five or six programs, and they all sucked. Either no mouse over text, or no ability to resize the page, or no undo function. I programmed a paint application when I was in high school. How hard can it be for the Ubuntu community to make a paint program that doesn’t suck?
Anyway, Tim brought up one of his Windows computers from the basement to calibrate his iPhone. So I booted it up, used the paint program, and tinkered around with the border images. They’re pretty sweet, Jason Morningstar designed them, but they’re 6×9, and I really need something that’s 12×9 to wrap around the whole page spread. So I spent some time tinkering with them to make them suitable for what I’m going for.
