Beginner's Tutorials
Be sure and check out the GIMPtricks tutorials on YouTube. They are a fantastic way to learn the basics. She's Dutch and at times her accent is a little hard to understand, but just follow on the screen and you won't have a problem. Take a look at these to start:

1. GIMP Basics and Introduction
2. Cool Tricks about the GIMP Interface
3. Cool Wilber Text effect
4. Make a Post-it Note in GIMP
5. The Transformation Tools
6. More than 25 text effects in GIMP and Alpha to Logo

RE: Beginner's Tutorials
GimpTricks her name is actually Julie, she's from Netherlands.

Some other people to look into is GimpKnowHow, jxtutorials, malgalin, David Wood, mahvin, and monsoonami has some decent tutorials, but not a nice selection.

Also Griatch has a great selection of tutorials for painters, mostly for beginners, but this dude no doubt is my favorite gimp painter, and he's definitely worth to checkout!

You guys can also hit up my youtube channel as I have 76 tutorials on gimp, most are basic stuff, but a few are for advanced members. If you're looking for advanced gimp tutorials you can also hit up my gimp tutorial site GimpPimp.TK.

RE: Beginner's Tutorials
Thanks for the pointers! I've seen most of these authors already, but for a nOOb, most of them are kind of advanced. A lot of GIMPtricks' stuff covers more basic aspects of GIMP, and I guess most advanced users consider that too boring to put out there for the most part. Both are useful, though, and I can't wait to work my way up to the other stuff.

RE: Beginner's Tutorials
No problem, he's definitely a great person when it comes to painting, and he's great at tips, and helping you become a better artist (mainly digital painting), but the dude's raw as hell.
