Hello and thanks for coming! Here's how it will work.
I will post a lesson on 'Understanding your GIMP' Then when everyone understands, I'll post the 1st lesson.
We'll start when we get the first 3 people. Anyone after that can just jump in.
Lesson 1: Tools. What are they and how do you use them. (These are the ones we will use in future lessons. When we plan to use others, I will post the ones they are and how to use them)
How do you scale? Click on the button of a square, and a smaller square on the top left corner of the bigger one. You can type in the measurement, or drag the corners of the picture. This can make your picture bigger or smaller.
How do I navigate(move the picture)? Click on the button that has 4 arrows. 1 up, 1 down, 1 left, 1 right. You can move the picture to where ever you would like.
How do I sheer? Click on the button that looks like a folded piece of paper with a white arrow on the bottom. You can tilt it however you want.
How do I rotate? Click on the button that has 2 little squares and 2 little white arrows. Click and pull in the direction.
How do I flip the pic in the other direction? Click on the square with a white arrow through the middle going left to right. Click that then click the pic and it will flip.
How do I add text? Click on the big A then which font, color and size.
How do I paint? Easy. Click on the paint brush. Choose your size of brush.
How do I erase? Click the eraser and choose your brush. (This is very important. You will use it a lot)
Tell me if you need more help.
