The free alternative to Photoshop, GIMP, has a major 2.8 update that gives the user a slew of new features and a snazzy new look. The new look completely overhauls the UI and offers a single window that most Photoshop users have become accustomed to. Earlier version had multiple windows, which could ultimately get daunting and scare away many users willing to try the free alternative to the image edition giant. However, if you prefer multiple windows, GIMP lets you choose between the two.
GIMP 2.8′s source code is available for free from GIMP’s website. If you like a version that you won’t need to compile the code before running the app, the Mac version will be available soon.

Criticism and rejection are difficult to deal with in a constructive way. At Envato, authors deal with reviewer rejection and peer criticism about their projects on a daily basis. How do these talented authors bear so much rejection?
Some don’t. These authors don’t consider constructive feedback from reviewers or their peers important. They are the type of people who don’t deal with criticism well.
The authors who do take time to reflect on the feedback they are given, are (in my opinion) those most likely to succeed. By working hard to improve upon issues that reviewers and peers have mentioned. These authors are able to produce items that are not only better and learn important skills in the process.
This week, take the excellent advice of Dudley Field Malone who said:
Old Malone is simply saying, you will learn more from rejections than you ever will from praise. So make sure you put that knowledge into practice!
