Let’s Make Manga
I‘ve recently updated Gimp Book with a couple of new features. The biggest change is probably that it now supports right-to-left reading, for languages like Japanese. This should be great for any manga artists using the plug-in. I don’t know if Gimp is big in Japan, but I would love to get help translating the plug-in to Japanese.
In addition I’ve added support for exporting to Windows BMP images for compatibility with Potrace, among other things, and fixed a number of bugs.
I’ve also found time to actually use Gimp Book a little, and recently finished a short 9 page comic done entirely in Gimp using Gimp Book. You can check it out over at my other site, queertales.com
