How to GIMP
 
Product Description:
Whether you're frustrated with technical jargon, confused by GIMP's layout or tools, or you just can't wrap your head around free GIMP tutorials, How to GIMP will help you learn GIMP without the headache.

Read it on your Kindle or on your computer and devices using a Kindle App. Though it is possible to read the book on black and white only versions of Kindle, we recommend reading it with a device that supports color images, or on your desktop with a Kindle App.

Start at the very beginning, setting up GIMP's interface to make it simple, and easy to use. Then, practice GIMP's basics like cropping pictures, and adjusting colors. After that, you'll graduate to GIMP's more advanced tools like Layers and Layer Masks.

Get even more practice with GIMP by following ten tutorials for popular techniques, like making a photo black and white with a pop of color, and adding a drop shadow effect to text that's typed on a photo. These are cool techniques to learn, but even better, they'll actually help you learn how to use GIMP's tools and features in combination. And each tutorial comes at just the right time to refresh your memory, and let you get some practice using the tools you've learned.

Since practice is so important, a free set of practice images is waiting for you at how-to-gimp.com. As you read the book, you can follow along with the practice photos to really get the most out of each chapter.

It's easy to read, easy to understand, and easy to follow. Now, it's easy to learn GIMP.
