Flyer making help
I usually make flyers by hand, with paste and a copy machine. But I want to get into some computer generated flyers like this one.

I know that there is a lot going on. I want to know how I could make this. From the background to the font's transparent properties.

Thanks.

Gimp isn't really the right tool (at least, not used alone). In the same category of OpenSource tools, you'll find Scribus (page typesetting), and InkScape (vector graphics).

Gimp is only a bitmap image editor. It can produce this kind of picture but only as a bitmap image and this won't print properly (text/line information is lost early in Gimp).

I tried making a flier too on Gimp, but there was a white border at the edge.

What do those do? I had to change it to Microsoft Publisher to print it out.
