Some time you are in a rush and need to add a picture to your presentation and realize that would be nice to borrow from someone else paper (citing the source of course!), after all you are running out of time and to prepare a picture descently takes a lot of time. There is a way to use gimp to get the picture you want: % gimp & Open, for example, a .ps file from where you are going to steal the pic :) In the gimp menu click: file -> aquire -> Screen Shot... In the poped up box you can select to grab single window without decoration. Click OK and then click on the gv window (for example). Select the picture you want and click on the right button of the mouse. Ctrl-c or ctrl-x the selected pic and then, in the same box, select Paste as new. Right click on the picture and select Save as. Type the name of the file---e.g. test.jpg A new window pops up asking if you want to export. Do it! and then adjust the settings featuring the quality of the picture. You are done! Also you can save as .eps and include in your .tex file by simply typing the name of the file and the extension .eps. Export it. Adjust the way you want the picture and that's it! Have fun! (but remember to cite the source!)

Viver não dói (trecho)
A cada dia que vivo, mais me convenço de que o
desperdício da vida está no amor que não damos, nas
forças que não usamos, na prudência egoísta que nada
arrisca, e que, esquivando-se do sofrimento, perdemos
também a felicidade.
A dor é inevitável.
O sofrimento é opcional.
Carlos Drummond de Andrade
