HOW TO USE GIMP
I'm a brand new (82 yr old) novice. Is there one place to find basic "How to's"?

Try Grokking the Gimp here: http://gimp-savvy.com/BOOK/index.html

This "web book" should get you off to a flying start. It did me.

RE: HOW TO USE GIMP
The Gimp is like Photoshop in that you can't just pick it up and take off with it.
It takes a lot of learning and practice, as both programs are meant for advanced users.

I have a Gimp tutorial channel on Youtube with 20+ tutorials for beginner and intermediate users so I would definitely recommend checking that out whether you are just getting into Gimp or wanting to expand your knowledge!

RE: HOW TO USE GIMP
All good replies. Being somewhat of a novice my self i"ll tell you what I did. Went on you tube and watched the tutorials. hit the help on the top for the manual, watched a lot, read a lot and just started playing around with it. Practice makes perfect. Enjoy the many many things you can do with Gimp.

you only learn if you try

RE: HOW TO USE GIMP
I used GIMP all the time but there was a major upgrade and now I am lost. Do you have a tutorial on how to set up the new GIMP if you are used to the old one?

I have a toolbox but there are no tool properties any more. Why would they remove them? I know they are up in the dockable windows but I don't want a separate window. I want the properties right below the tools.

RE: HOW TO USE GIMP
Hello all, I wanted to ask if someone here may be of help solving an issue I am having with a Gimp project I am working on. I have an animated image in which I added animated text on top of it using the combine feature in GAP. They work fine the only issue is they work at different intervals. They have the same dimensions and frames. Can someone please point me in the right direction as to what I am doing wrong or failing to miss?
