Today marks the end of my series on Gimp, so of course I have to close out with a combination of my favorite things — keyboard shortcuts and cheat sheets!
Gimp, like most programs, utilizes many (120+) keyboard shortcuts to make its use very quick and simple — assuming you can memorize enough of them!
In addition to the standard shortcuts — which are re-iterated in this cheat sheet, for convenience, despite the fact you’ve hopefully memorized them already! — there are a number of shortcuts that quickly select tools, dockable dialogs, menu options, and more.
The Gimp Keyboard Shortcut Cheat Sheet is free to my mailing list subscribers.
This year had been — much to my brother’s chagrin — very Linux command-line-intensive, at least on the blog front.
The good news — if you’re not Linux-oriented — is that I’m winding down to move on to (mostly) other topics.
The bad news — because of course there had to be some! — is that this week and the next are still focused on Linux.
(If you’re my brother, you don’t have to read this!)
If you’re not my brother, can I interest you in a Linux command line cheat sheet?

This week I was introduced to a new text editor. While it is not a command line text editor, or even a Linux-only text editor, it does fit pretty well into the current line-of-thought.
Atom is a GitHub project described as a “hackable text editor for the 21st century”. It is designed to be deeply customizable, but still approachable, using the default configuration. Atom can be run on OS X, Windows, and Linux.
For anyone who does not already know, GitHub is a web-based repository hosting service for Git, which is a version-control and management software for source code. Github is used primarily to host open-source software projects. It’s a popular social network for developers, programmers, and even end-users.

Today’s topic is a continuation of last week’s lesson on the Vi/Vim editors.
Mailing list subscribers will receive a free copy of the Vi/Vim Editor Cheat Sheet. To receive this, and other (past/future) exclusive content, you can subscribe.
The command possibilities available in Vi are seemingly endless; as such, they are not all covered in this cheat sheet.
What this cheat sheet does cover, are all of the basic commands for navigating Vi and modifying, searching, replacing, exiting, etc.
Remember, Vi is case-sensitive; any letter that you type can mean two completely different things, depending on its case.
I like to use this cheat sheet as a quick reference, as I have not yet managed to memorize all of these commands.
I hope that you find it as useful as I do.
You had to know it was coming. What’s a shortcut without a cheat sheet full of them?
This cheat sheet is a compilation of the Linux command line shortcuts (keyboard and otherwise) mentioned in the past few articles.
It’s printer-friendly, for convenience!
The cheat sheet is available exclusively to my mailing list subscribers; you can subscribe at any time to receive the download.
