Where's the Very FIrst lesson in GIMP?
I've watched Tut's and read links till I'm sick of it.
The Tut posters need some serious editing.

I'd like to know how to get started.
What's first?
I got stuck on Layers.
Importing photos, cutting parts out, hold the parts some where and move the other photo in place. (putting the little Girls head on the Dog) and etc.

Smile I was using that Girl/Dog statement as an example. My Gran daughter and her dog was on my mind at that moment.

Drawing for a book I wrote for my Grand kids IS on my mind though. When I saw GIMP I realized I could animate that book.
But then all my enthusiasm DIED when I couldn't make anything work.
Thanks for the Book idea. I'll look. But my eyes are getting pretty old.....

This place is worth a look if you haven't already been there, http://mygimptutorial.com/the-ultimate-g...t-tutorial This is the type of thing I first started building with Gimp.

The planets aren't that easy to do but with a fair bit of time and effort it's possible to come up with some good results. The tutorials are well written and there's plenty of images to explain what's going on. Also it's a good way to learn about a lot of the different tools on offer.
If you get stuck you can drop a line in here, I've built about half a dozen planets so far so I should be able to offer some tips.

That link is to some good easy to read info.
I'll print out the Diagrams and jog back and forth for the instructions and see how it'll work.

Thanks a lot.
