Description

Hello and welcome to my GIMP crash course.


In this GIMP course, you'll learn how to install for both a MAC and a PC.  Once installed, I'll show you how to make the GIMP interface look more like Photoshop.  This is huge if you ever plan on upgrading to Photoshop or if you're downgrading instead.


GIMP has its own type of file format for saving layered files.  You'll learn what it is, how to use it, and how to use other file types.


Then, you will learn the basics of layers and how to use them in GIMP.


This GIMP crash course was designed for beginners only.  If you already have GIMP installed and/or know how to change the interface, how to use file types and use layers, then this course is not for you.


GIMP is the number one alternative to Photoshop.  It has a lot of the same tools and features without the cost... it's 100% free!


Best of all, the developers are working hard to bring new tools to help you achieve your creative vision.  New updates are released several times per year that rival Photoshop.  Discover the best kept secret in the photo editing world and start your journey today.
