Hello & Thanks
My name is David (obviously) and, in the past two years or so, I've become a complete addict to all open-source programs (though haven't made the leap to Linux yet, since I can't program), and GIMP is high on the list. (Along with Blender, OpenOffice, Firefox, now Inkscape...and several others.)

I actually started off playing around with Paint.net a few years ago - this was before I even heard of GIMP, and that taught me about Layers and just the general ideas in modern imaging programs. When I heard of GIMP, I thought it would be an easy switch, but it was somewhat hard, actually. I had to assign myself several arbitrary tasks and say, "I'm gonna achieve this with GIMP and learn the program in the process" to really become comfortable with it.

Anyway, I'm 31 and live in Michigan. As far as my GIMP proficiency and overall graphics skills, I'm probably, like, a 4 on a scale of 1 to 10. But I like to think that, most of the time, I can achieve whatever I have to on it. But it's for that remaining 10% where I need help that I'm at this forum.
