o wow, impressive cosmic views Charles! and what a coincidence, I
usually don't mess much with GIMP in that way, but somehow a comment one
of my facebook friends made on my new office inspired me on this turkey
day to make a cosmic office view:
if you look closely, I cheated on the blinds. I used a quick mask but it
was very tedious to try and do the blinds, even with a fuzzy brush.
Perhaps my Wacom tablet and a steady hand will do a more
impressive/accurate job, but for now, this will have to be it.
