An innocent abroad

Unintended consequences

Today, I was creating a document using LyX which is a friendly application for utilising the power of TeX/LaTeX. I had an issue with exporting to DVI or PDF depending on whether the image was EPS or JPEG. So, to find an answer to my issue I turned to my usual search engine and tried "latex images" - oops! Most of the top results had nothing to do with what I was looking for.

Next, I was wanting to enhance an image I had taken recently with my digital camera. I vaguely remembered a technique using masks in the excellent graphics application GIMP. Again, I thought I could track down the tutorial using a search engine so I tried "gimp mask" - no, no, no that isn't what I meant!

If my internet usage is being profiled anywhere my activities today are going to look a bit suspect.
