The Artist's Guide to GIMP appears in its second updated edition to provide the first all-color guide to GIMP 2.8's many functions, and is a top pick for artists and designers who want to use GIMP and work around its tricky advanced functions. It's a powerful alternative to Photoshop--but it has some quirks. This course covers all the basics, pairing the program's tools with real-world applications and showing how to link GIMP's advanced functions to web design techniques and advertising effects. The result is an impressive survey focusing on building GIMP applied skills in a fine pick for artists, designers and computer collections alike.
