10 Things For New GIMP Users by AMProSoft 10 Things For New GIMP Users by AMProSoft
10 things that new GIMP users might not know but would probably find useful if they did.

If you find any of this information useful I would LOVE a WATCH or at least fav this and leave a comment.

I am planning to make more of these, and I might redo this one if enough people have useful suggestions for how to improve it.

If the text is too small and tough to read, here is a link to the text. [link]

i've tried to feather a selection and it never worked. I always have to select feather first... i 'll have to go back and try again because that would be awesome.

I'm not even new to GIMP, and I didn't know you could use transformations on selections. I've been just cutting and pasting my selections to turn them into floating layers. ^.^'

Hi, and welcome to Gimp Art is Cool. This is a nice tutorial, and would be a welcome addition to Gimp Art is Cools tutorial folder, if we had one. Since we don't, is there a tutorial group that specializes in Gimp tutorials that we might affiliate with?

I've been using GIMP extensively for over a year now, and I've pretty much got all this down pat, but when you talked about feathering selections, it oddly helped me realize that I could create a selection inside an ink with the Fuzzy Select tool, and resize the selection by just a bit so the colors will fill snuggly under the ink lines, with no bleeding.

That's going to save me literally hours drawing paths to fill in color bases on cartoon art, and I wouldn't have realized that if it weren't for this tutorial, thanks for helping in an unexpected way. XD
