Since I can't afford Photoshop, I am trying to learn some Gimp and was wondering if anyone has any title of a good book to learn how to use it.

I have been messing around tonight and did this. Problem is, I don't know how to do anything else and know that it is almost as powerful as Photoshop. It would be a lot more enjoyable if I knew what the hell I was doing.

LOL I can see my avatar in there. Thanks for including my avatar. I drew that with my graphics tablet in GIMP.

I wonder if you have started reading those tutorials in this ? That's how I got started. There are plenty of good tutorials out there on the internet.

That's just too spooky Tribe...I was looking at Gimp just days ago too, cos I can't afford photoshop either!

Anyway....the tutorials are very welcome, and when I get this round of projects under my belt, I will definitely be trying them out.

Thank you!

Youtube video's are pretty good! I learnt a little from those and there seemed to be plenty last time I looked

Just found this thread - awesome!

I was just playing around with this today.

What I would like to do is take my avatar and background and put them together as a single background piece ... I haven't had any luck though. Complicated.

Maybe these links will help?

p.s. see my avatar in your first post, very cool mix you made.

Yes, especially for my compulsion for wanting things to be perfect, issue.

Ah well, entertainment for rainy days.
