Gimp Tips

These are some neat techniques I've worked out while using the graphics program known as Gimp. Gimp is a very nice graphics editor. It does a lot of the sort of stuff that Photoshop does, but Gimp is free. I like free.

These techniques are all shown using Gimp 2.4. If you have an earlier version (or if my page has gotten so out of date that there is now a Gimp 3) it shouldn't be too hard to follow along. This is not a tutorial on Gimp. I am assuming that you have a working knowledge of things in Gimp like layers, channels and particularly the curves tool.
