The Gimp Tutorial And Free Gimp Download

If you are looking for a Gimp tutorial, or ‘the Gimp’ as many refer to it as, then probably the best sites are those offering Gimp video tutorials. The Gimp is one of the most comprehensive website graphics applications online, and a free Gimp download is available from many free and open source websites.

So what exactly can the Gimp do for you, and why should you learn by means of a Gimp video tutorial? The name stands for GNU Image Manipulation Program, GNU being what is referred to as a recursive acronym for GNU’s no Unix, and is a free operating system like Unix, but containing no Unix code. What GNU means, however, is largely irrelevant to the normal person’s use of Gimp, and since a free Gimp download is easy to get, the normal person uses it a lot.

It is a highly sophisticated application, and very much like the very expensive Adobe Photoshop in functionality. It can be used, for example, with digital photographs to sort many photographic problems such as perspective problems caused by lens tilt and also to carry out digital retouching to enhance the detail of digital images. These are among the simple tasks that the Gimp tutorial will teach you.

However, it can also be used in website design to develop wonderful looking web pages and templates s well as practically intuitively for simple jobs such as image resizing. Many web designers use on the Gimp for their professional work, and it can do the vast majority of jobs that Photoshop can do: perhaps them all, though I have not yet had to do everything that Photoshop can do, so don’t know if Gimp can. However, I’ve yet to find something that it cannot do.

Although a free Gimp download is easy to find, however, a good Gimp tutorial is not. Many tutorials are written and very difficult to follow, and even those sites that offer screenshots of how to use The Gimp are often very difficult to follow. There is always that little something missing. A Gimp video tutorial, however, misses nothing because you see the Gimp being used in front of your eyes, from the initial download all the way to using it in a design operation.

One of the most important aspects of learning how to use Gimp is understanding exactly what it is and how it achieves its basic functions. Once you understand that, then you can begin to understand how it can be used as an alternative to Photoshop. You will learn about layers, channels, maks, masked filters and all the normal; stuff, and also how to create your own brushes, including dynamic brushes, and how to replace or remove image backgrounds.

Using the Gimp tutorial you will learn how create fabulous website graphics, and compelling WEB2 graphics that people will be offering you fortunes to design just for them. The Gimp video tutorials are the best way to learn how to use the Gimp, and the free Gimp download also helps to render this one of the most attractive graphics packages currently online.

For information on the Gimp and how to use it, visit Pete’s website at Online Net Income where a free Gimp download is available together with the documentation, also the offer of a Gimp tutorial to help you use it better.

Wow. You just never know what can and will happen for people. My team and I had the pleasure of working with Laney Chantal who is now known for being on SyFy’s hit show FACEOFF, She is also a model, as well as a very talented makeup and special effects artist. Check out her website:

These are some images from a shoot we did back in 2009. The body painting is done by me, Bryan Crump. The corsets you see are actually sculpted and made of ceramic. They are the famous "Ceramic Corsets" designed by none other than Nicole Moan, another very talented artist.

It has been my pleasure and honor over the years to work with some pretty amazing and talented to people. I truly feel blessed.

My team and I would like to say congratulations to Laney on getting a chance to show her work and what she can do on FACEOFF. She has had her work and modeling featured in several publications and websites but I think this recent thing with SYFY if going to be a huge catalyst for her.

The rumor I hear is that she is also Engaged to marry Twiggy from the band Marilyn Manson. A lot of big things happening for this lady. Keep working on your dreams. You never know what is possible.

I hope one day my skills are developed enough to compete on Faceoff. I was in talks with one show, but callbacks can take forever in this industry. You never know what each day will bring, so we must always work towards the future and improving every day.

Tune in to Watch SyFy’s Faceoff every Tuesday to see some amazing artists compete and see what they are capable of.

Feel free to share, reblog, etc. If you would like to see more of my work you can follow me here and on my facebook fanpage:

The Golden Gate Bridge at Dusk

Daily Photo – The Golden Gate Bridge at Dusk
I had spent the previous night up in Napa, visiting my mom and grandmother. This was a long day with a stop in Petaluma to see Leo’s operation, a fast hike through the Muir Woods, and then a visit to the Golden Gate Bridge to catch its majesty at sunset.

I’m sure locals know this spot very well, but I found it thanks to Google Earth. I knew it would be a cool spot, but driving to these spots is always a bit sketchy when you have never been there before. It appeared to be a simple jog off Highway 1, and it actually was. It’s nice when something that looks easy ends up actually being easy! This isn’t usually the case. Even better, the wind wasn’t howling a mile a minute, which I think can happen around here if you don’t watch out!

After I took this, I could hardly wait to get back home to process the final image. I don’t know about y’all, but I find the post-processing just as fun as the actual shooting… I really get a kick out of it!

New Free Video Coming Soon
