    Hey there,

    I've been a part of the iDevice scene for a while now, I've SSH'ed, Jailbroken, added themes, had emulators, done all that, but I haven't gotten into making themes yet. I really wanna start as it seems like a really cool hobby and I'd want to get into it.

    First of all, I don't wanna pay for CS4, so I just downloaded GiMP. I'm totally new to all this, and I haven't found a single GiMP tutorial on here, so I ask you people. Any tips, tutorials, or other help will be greatly appreciated. Keep in mind that the only image editing I've done is a grade 9 Fireworks CS3 class.

    Do you recommend GIMP or GIMPSHOP?

    personally I recommend using/learning GimpShop because the normal GIMP has a totally different interface than photoshop
    and gimpshop imitates that interface so learning gimpshop gives you a better start with photoshop in the future

    while providing you the same functions of gimp

    GIMPSHOP is just a customized Gimp.
    Its actually written from the same source code as Gimp, and because it was open-source, its legal.

    But from what I've heard and past experiences, Paint.NET seems better to me. I used to use it before I came to my senses and got PS CS4 Extended, and I did enjoy it alot more than Gimp.
