I want to learn GIMP

Post by Einsteinean on Mon Aug 16, 2010 8:17 pm

But I'm too fucking lazy. Help me get unlazified. I've opened it, but it looks WAYYY too complicated for my Summer brain. Can someone give me a basic tutorial?

That's how we all start. It's all about trial and error. Just start using random stuff. Learning what each thing does as you use it.

Well experiment with that box, add paint to it, brushes, filters whatever.

Start by messing around with the gradient tool, brush tool, text tool, and a few filters. That right there is the basics to graphic design on gimp

When I was into graphics, this site helped me a lot - plenty of good tutorials (that's not considered advertising, right?) - but it seems like you've already got plenty of help with getting started. xP Graphics are fun; hope you enjoy GIMP.

It isn't as complicated as you may think Ein.
Just open a new file and discover what the tools are for.

I had this problem when I first joined. These two sites helped me out really well. Sorry if this is advertising.

Nah, its not advertising Brian dont worry.

@ Julian: It depends on what you are trying to make. Signatures? Those require a lot more than the knowledge of how tools work. Avatars? You can make some nice ones, but without knowing how to download brushes and filters, scripts, and text, they arent going to look very nice. Themes? I guess those are a given, just coming up wit ideas is hard sometimes. But like I said, I would train Ein, but I dont think he is going to be very active on here so I dont think he will see this. xD Also, Sher, talk to me on MSN whenever you want to start learning.
