    This list is beyond amazing. I’m just starting to get into GIMP/image creation and these will be extremely beneficial, :). Thanks!

  • Yash Pal

    These are very good tutorials. As the introduction says:
    “gimp design tutorials to take a novice and turn them into an expert”

    I think ‘skamasle’ is being less than charitable:

    “but all are very easy and simple..

    Gimp have more power than that, so is nice tutorial but I only say gimp can make more…..”

    Very true but a novice has to start somewhere and it is only after (s)he works on and learns the tricks of the trade with a few ‘easy’ tutorials that the novice can be confident.

    I used to hold my breath each time I use gimp and then go back to photoshop (pirated). With the new release yesterday (the dmg version) and these tutorials, I guess I will give gimp a try a-gain. Hope to make it my primary tool soon. Thank you for presenting this list.
