I could use a little help
I could use a little help. I teach young people Photoshop and other graphic programs. Become aware of Gimp about 5 months ago.The young I work with now do Gimp demos for other young people that cannot afford expensive programs. It blew my mind that all young people now have a way into multimedia. You see this as something you want to learn. I see this as something in every 5th and 6th grade in the country. These demos are done at boys and girls clubs, libraries, anyplace they can get one young person to watch. I live in California, Silicon Valley area. In March I am going to Ontario Oregon, poorest county in that state. They have a community college without one single multimedia class of any kind. I am going to spend four months doing demos to any young person, parent, organization or at home group that will listen. Again you see this as a great program that does everything PS does. I see this as the beginning of open source (free) multimedia in the schools. Parents and teachers don't understand Digital Technology. It has to start from the bottom up. The young will have to teach the teachers. I start at 10 years old in PS. I use VTC Gimp training movies. That is not free open source. I have a simple request. I want you to list every Youtube video you know on 1) Basic Interface 2) Introduction to Selections 3) Introduction to Layers. I would like to create a Basic Essentials of Gimp starting with these three. After these we will keep going down the list. This list will be available to everyone. Also there is nothing to keep you young revolutionaries out there from doing a few Gimp Demos. Try to infect as many as you can with Creative Desire.

RE: I could use a little help
What's your question, need help learning Gimp?

I make video tutorials on my YouTube Channel on varies things, but what I love to do most is tutorials on Gimp, and Blender. Now you can go here to checkout my old tutorials of Gimp, and hopefully they'll become helpful to you.

I made a tutorial site a couple months ago, but no tutorials have been posted on it as I no longer have a functioning computer, and I'm on the verge of being homeless again, but once I get back on my feet I'll be putting tutorials on that site, and btw it's GimpPimp at http://gimppimp.tk/

RE: I could use a little help
I am sorry, should clarify my request. We have many training movies off Youtube, use it a lot. What I am looking for are certain movies to create a basic training program list. Don't want to spend a lot of time searching whole site for specific training movies if I can get help. The best thing I could show you is go to vtc.com, put in Gimp 2.6 and look at the outline of that program. Or go to Lynda.com, look ant any photoshop essential training program outline. Want to put a list of of movies together that starts at the beginning and goes through all the basics of Gimp. Like the three I listed, then tools, masks, working with photos, etc., etc. If I can get individuals to help work on one category at a time would save a lot of looking. I think as you might see I am interested in two things, each individual young person and also large numbers of young people getting into this new digital century. By the way if you want to make a tutorial be my guest. Every young person is creative, they only need a little help.

RE: I could use a little help
Oh ok I get what you're saying, and I actually had that planned for my first two videos on GimpPimp. The first video is the basics of gimp, which will be able an hour, and a half if not longer to go over the tools, and filters. I'm not gonna go over layer modes in that tutorial as it's a bit more advanced, and complete new comers wouldn't understand it, but yeah that'd be something to checkout once I get my computer fixed.

As for finding the videos right now, I don't think there's a good video tutorial resource yet as far as the gimp tools are concerned, and how to use them efficiently so if I were you I'd wait on my video coming up, but if you don't wanna wait, why not just search YouTube, or Google???
