|What is the latest version of Stamp?
The latest version of Stamp! is version 2.0.8, and it can be
found in the download section.
|What is the deal with gstamp?
GTK Stamp! is an X Windows configuration file generator
for stamp which also provides all the functionality of stamp.
It also has a neat preview option to see what your image will look like
with the current settings.
|Why did you use GTK for gstamp?
GTK is becoming the standard widget set for open source X applications.

|I noticed stamp can apply colored text to images, what
about those of us with black & white cameras?
Stamp 2.0 now generates color jpegs regardless of whether or
not the input jpeg was color. So you can now put color text/shading onto
black and white images.
|My image comes out all fuzzy, even though I am setting the quality
to a reasonably high level!
Be sure that you are sending stamp the highest quality
image. For example, if you are using cjpeg to convert your images
from your quickcam output, be sure to specify -q 100 and no
optimizations. Then, let stamp handle the quality settings as
the last step in the image processing.
|Why did you take away the input/output file command line options?
My webcam script archives images.
You can still archive images. Just do something similar to
# Set up our environment
echo Creating the image.
qcam -s1 -D -E1 | cjpeg -quality 100 -outfile latest.jpg
echo Finished creating the image.
cp -v latest.jpg backup/`date +%Y.%m.%d.%H.%M.%S`.jpg
|I can't use gstamp. What is the format for the config file?
Here's an example ~/.stamprc

|Is this program Y2K compliant?
Of course. :-)
|Why didn't you implement feature X?
Tell us what features you would like, and we will more than
happily consider implementing it for you, or assist you with understanding
the code, so you can implement it on your own...
|How can I help out Stamp! or its authors?
Send us coffee. Any kind will do, although we would prefer
exotic coffee, since we can get normal coffee at the supermarket.
