Default ~The Basic Steps Of GIMP and How To Make Awesome Graphics~

Click the image to open in full size.

Hello! This is a guide to help understand some very basics of GIMP. I will also be adding how to make neat graphics later. Please rate and tell me if you enjoyed the guide.


To Make a New File:
1.)With GIMP open,go to File
2.)Next,click on "New"
3.)The dimensions:
Avatars: Width and Height are both 200x200
Signatures: Weight: 500 Height: 200


This is the GIMP toolbox:
Click the image to open in full size.

Click the image to open in full size.

The bold letter "A" is the text tool. When you have your document you click on it and then the text box will appear.


To make the letters a different color:

1.) If I wanted to color each letter of the word LOL a different color then I could do one text box with the letter "L"

Click the image to open in full size.

You put each letter in a different tool box. Now after you do each letter,you have to add on a new layer. To do this you:
1.) Go up to where it says "Layer"
2.) Then you add "New Layer"
3.) Click OK when the window comes up.

You need to put each letter in a different text box. After you do each letter be sure to add a layer.

Another nice guide, Perry!

I'd just like to say that the limit for avatars is 125x125 (the professional-looking Iconator ones are 100x100) and the limit for signatures is 450x150. If your image is bigger than the limit, it will still work, but WI will automatically resize it for you and that usually makes it a little bit blurrier and a little less clear.
I will be adding a lot more to this guide! So please check back often.
