Default -Huge Gimp guide; {animations&more}-

Welcome to my guide; I will be teaching you cool things to do with Gimp.

WHAT IS GIMP?
Gimp is a picture editing service that is free for download online.
Here's a link to the download page-
GIMP - Downloads
If this download doesn't work for you just google "Gimp Downloads"
for this click the link that says in orange download gimp 2.6.11
follow the given istructions from there;
and enjoy gimp.

HOW LONG HAVE I BEEN DOING GIMP?
I've been doing Gimp for not even a year yet so if I can do it, you can too.
Never lose hope in Gimp, it will come to you, sooner or later.
I know it looks hard with all the buttons but with some time and effort you will soon know what every button means and you will be a pro.

~TIPS~
I do have a few tips for Gimp these are pretty much just cool things to know.
To see you're animation before you save you're picture-
Filters>Animations>Playback>Play
Settings-
.png is good for a still image, with no animation, it is more clear then .jpg/.jpeg
.jpg is good for a still image also, but is no as clear as a .png
.gif is for animation, it is what you use when you save a animated picture;this is usually clear.
If you are going to be drawing something-
Use pencil instead of paintbrush, paintbrush will make it pixely while pencil will just do one clean dot. If you try this you will understand what I'm talking about.


~REQUEST~
NONE.


Reading this?Got Tips for Gimp?
Comment them!!! [:

~VIEWER TIPS FOR GIMP~
When you comment a tip I will put it here. I will quote it so it will show your username- you will get credit.





Make sure to request what you need help on ;]
