New to it all.
Good evening (or morning depending where or when you're reading this).
My name is Dean. I've just got my first "proper" camera and I'm quite interested in editing the images I take. Heaven knows they need it. Decided to go with Gimp following the reviews and the fact I don't have to part with my hard earned.
I quite like HDR and star trails and the like so will definately be on here asking for advice, as I'm not very confident with Gimp yet.
Spent hours the other night making my first HDR image to then realise that the image had only opened as a thumbnail.
It's a bloody good thumbnail now though!
Cheers for reading and thanks in advance for all the advice.

RE: New to it all.
lol at working with the thumbnail image the whole time, happens to the best of us XD (did you scale up the image or just work with its current size?

Anyways, a very warm welcome to you Dean! A good place to start for your troubleshooting needs would be the "Tutorials & Tips" section; scan the "important threads" part first, especially "Gimp Profile", that can be quicker at fixing some problems than reinstalling.

After take a stroll to the beginners thread or try to search for any problems you have at the top right of the forum "search"

If you want to know more about a specific gimp tool, doc.giimp is a great source! you can browser search the tools like this "move tool doc gimp" , "menus doc gimp"

Also when you get the chance check out my tutorials in either in my sig below or on my profile page Smile

Have fun gimping!

RE: New to it all.
Thanks for the welcome.
I did rescale the image at one point but it was quite pixelated. Obviously. So put it back down. As long as I learn from my mistakes I don't mind making them.
Cheers again.
