Free GIMP Tutorials

I’ve been asked often about Gimp and if I would write up tutorials for it so I thought that I would post something up.

First of all, if you don’t know Gimp, it’s the most popular and function-rich, stand-alone photo editing software out there that’s 100% FREE! Got your attention? 😉

I wish I could personally write up some Gimp tutorials but, to be honest, I’ve never tried it! I’ve been with my good buddy Photoshop since version 3 (not CS3).  I know that for many of you, Photoshop is pretty expensive especially if photography is a hobby and not income generating. So Photoshop Elements, free online photo editing sites or Gimp would be great alternatives.

Researching tutorial links for this post gave me a some good insight on what is generally said about Gimp and it’s quite positive! So just download it and give it a test drive. 🙂 If you’re already using Gimp, tell us what you like and dislike about it. If you know of other good Gimp tutorial links, please share them in the comments.

Happy Gimping!
