Mora-Foto: tutorials for photography and photo editing with Gimp
Many step by step tutorials for beginner and advanced users for photo editing with Gimp and photography with reflex cameras.
Thank you for visit Mora-Foto. This is the English version of my Italian website about photography and photo editing with Gimp.
I'm almost sure that mora-foto is the biggest website in Italy with original content about Gimp, so one day I decided to traslate in english a part of my Gimp tutorials. Here you can read all the guides I've wrote for training in this powerful and free software, that is the best free solution for non-professional photo editing so far. Gimp allows you to do the basics, as well as many advanced post processing effects. Obviously it gives best results with reflex cameras if you also have a raw editor to begin with. So, if you are not a professional photographer, or you don't want to spend many money on expensive licenses, Gimp is, for sure, the right program for you.
This website is divided into different sections, definitely the most important is "Gimp Tutorials, basic and advanced effects explained step by step". Here are collected the best tutorials for Gimp I wrote in English. About the quality of the translation.. Ehm... I just want to let you know you my motto: "Bad English, but good tutorials" so I hope you will forgive all the errors you will find (I hope few).
The other section, photography, has been absolutely secondary for years, in fact there's only a work in progress sign. You can reach it by click this link to the photography section, but you will not find anything. I promised myself I will start soon working on it.
If you want to see some of my photos, you can visit my Photogallery, that is only a selection of my best pictures. If you are interested in all my photos instead, you can click here to see the Italian complete portfolio (Opens in a new window).
Little story about me and this website.
My name is Marco Mora and I was born in November 1983 in the North-East of Italy. I have a twin brother, named Andrea. Our passion for the computer has many years, since we were teenagers. Our actual interests are photography, photo editing, and website developing. Actually we are not good photographers, but we're pretty able in post processing ang teaching. We bought our first Reflex camera, a Canon 550D, in the summer of 2010. Actually we own a Canon 6D, we shoot in Raw Format and we use Canon DPP to process the raw files and Gimp for the post processing.
Some years ago, me and my twin brother, had decided to create a website about Gimp, to share our knowledge, we wrote many tutorials for newbies and advanced users
and now we have one of the bigger website about Gimp in Italy.
Some month later, I decided to translate a part of our website, and I created "GimpForPhotos", the English "fork" of my web site.
The worst error about this website so far: I purchased a new ".com" domain and with the help of Andrea, my twin, we began this new project. I said that it was an error because I had to host the tutorials on this ".it" website from the beginning. After one year the website had expired, and I decided to "kill the idea" because there were few visitors and didn't worth the price of the domain. In November 2013 we decided to update the whole Italian website and change the graphic, in order to make it responsive.
We took the opportunity to publish again our dead project, so it has been a good option to resurrect the english project, and this page has born. I'm sorry, our domain name mora-foto.it is a nonsense for an anglophone. Unfortunately the word "photo" in Italian is written "foto" and "Mora" is just our family name. The meaning of the italian word "mora" is "blackberry", and is also used for "female brunette" hairs colour.
It would be great if you could help this website. There are different ways:
- Like this page on Facebook. Updates will be in italian.. but is always nice to see followers number grow
- Help us to grow, spreading or linking this page anywhere you want.
- Send me a mail to give me a feedback or with corrections for any error you could find.
