Non-Linux FOSS: Seashore

As Linux users, we tend to take programs like GIMP for granted. Thankfully, as of version 2.8.2, GIMP is available as a native application for OS X! Because everyone reading this most likely is familiar with how awesome GIMP is for photo editing, it's worth mentioning there is another open-source photo-editing application for OS X named Seashore.

Seashore is an application written in the native OS X Cocoa language, so it clearly looks like a native application when running (Figure 1). Although OS X users no longer have to install X11 in order to take advantage of GIMP, Seashore is a powerful image editor in its own right, and because it's open source, it's well worth the effort to try it out! You can download Seashore at http://seashore.sourceforge.net. The native version of GIMP is available at http://www.gimp.org/downloads.

Figure 1. Based on the interface alone, it's obvious Seashore is a native OS X application.

best waterproof camera

Thomas Lyle Brown's picture

The fact that there's a blog post and a long discussion on something that should be taken for granted speaks volumes. Not a good catch-up strategy I'd say. I hope Google will rectify this in the next version, including a hires camera on the back. Go to any tourist spot and you'll notice people taking videos with their iPads! What will smaller iPads enable? That's right, more tourists taking videos with them. Remember the days when "calling people" used to be the primary feature on a smart-phone!?
Owning an underwater camera opens a whole world of new photography opportunities. Whether you want to preserve memories of family vacations, have a good time in the water with your friends or simply purchase the best waterproof camera that will be safe in rain, a waterproof camera is a worthy purchase.
