GIMP – Edit multiple files in a single window

Posted in Gimp, Workflow with tags , , on March 2, 2014 by Sirusdark

Gimp LogoI recently discovered a bug in GIMP: whenever you edit multiple files with GIMP, if the program is NOT already opened, you will get as many windows as files you asked to edit. Not really desirable.

Here’s how to fix this problem:

GIMP, always numero uno

1. First, start GIMP.

2. Then select all the files you wish to edit.

3. Edit your selection with GIMP.

Gimp will then open all the files in tabs WITHIN GIMP instead of separate windows. Problem solved!

Excel Functions translated in 16 languages and saved for offline use

Here’s one of the most useful combination of webpage and Firefox add-on I use:

A list of all Microsoft Excel’s function translated in some 16 languages and saving it for offline use with UnMHT.



In Microsoft Excel, the names of functions depend on which language MS-Office was installed. Since I work in a different languages, it was a pain to find the corresponding functions from a language to another… not anymore! Here’s a table containing the Excel function names in 16 languages. You can even filter which one you want to see.


Offline we go!

Then, it’s nice and all, but what if I don’t have access to the Internet? Or worse, if that nice webpage goes dark forever? There’s an app for that : UnMHT
