I want to restart an old hobby of mine - photography. In the old days I
had a camera which used film and a darkroom with an enlarger, chemicals
and various pieces of processing equipment. Now, I have a digital
camera, a computer running Ubuntu and a colour printer. I can transfer
my photographs from my camera to my computer, look at them, even
manipulate them and that is as far as I can go. So, can someone please
help me.

The only software I have is gThumb, which is good to start with and Gimp
which is far too complicated. I have an Epson Stylus Photo R300 colour
printer and I can print from gThumb but not from Gimp. Furthermore,
gThumb produces prints with a 20mm border, which cannot be altered. 20mm
is far too big, 2mm to 5mm would be acceptable but I would prefer no
border at all.

So, friends what do I do? The obvious is to revert to Windows where I
can find all the software I could possibly want but I would prefer not
to do this. There must be other people here who are practical
photographers and don't have all their photographs commercially
processed. So, what is my next step.
