    The basics.​

    This is what you get when you open GIMP:​

    As you can see, it has many different tools.

    Lets start with the tool window. If you hover over the items in GIMP, it tells you what they do.

    Making a new canvas​


    Please Register or Log in to view images


    You are able to change the size of the canvas by changing the numbers that say 320 and 242. You can change these to whatever you want. Keep the measurement in pixels.

    You might also want to change the Fill with bar, i have it at transparency.


    The layer window​

    This is the layer window, this is where you can have a "tower" of images.

    E.G. You have a image of a car, you want to put text over that car, you simply click on the New Layer button (which is circled) to make a new layer, then you can type away with the text tool.

    With the text being on a layer, you can easily move it around the image.

    You can also see an little eye next to each layer, if you press it, it will disable the layer, if you press it again, it will come back on.

    What you see circled are chains, this allows you to link together images so they move around at once.

    More will be added soon.

    i would appreciate if later when you added more if you could add how to make a simple shape, rather then clicking 50 times through selection-selection editor-stroke selection, and even with that you can only make squares, ovals, circles, and rectangles.
