GIMP Essential Training
GIMP is a popular open-source image editor for Mac, Windows, and Linux that has slowly evolved to become a credible free alternative to programs like Adobe Photoshop. In this course, Justin Seeley shows how to translate basic image editing techniques to GIMP, such as cropping and resizing, selecting and masking, improving tone and contrast, and dedicates other chapters to retouching with the cloning and healing tools, creating illustrative effects with the paint and ink brushes, and working with text and paths. The final sections show you how to save time by automating tasks with macros and batch processing and how to print and save your work.

(chimes) - [Voiceover] Hey there, my name is Justin Seeley. I'd like to welcome you to Gimp Essential Training. First off we'll tackle the basics like Gimp's interface and tools. From there we'll move onto one of the most essential elements of Gimp, layers. Once we've nailed down layers, we'll move on to the fun stuff like creating and using masks on your images. I'll show you how to use Gimp's various selection tools to grab a piece of your image, refine it and then turn it into a mask to create composites or simply make selective adjustments.
Next we'll dive into manipulating images with the levels and curves commands. I'm also going to show you how to do things like creating and editing vector paths, applying text to your designs, how to work with Gimp's painting tools and how to speed up your workflow using some of the built-in automation features inside of Gimp. So if you're ready, let's begin our journey into Gimp Essential Training.
