I like learning new stuff. But sometimes I get lazy and don’t want to put forth the effort it takes. So when I hear my son’s mantra of, “Mom, you really need to learn GIMP“, I usually just smile, nod, and continue on in my comfortable Inkscape world. After all, I’ve viewed a few online GIMP tutorials, including some You Tube videos, and frankly I wasn’t all that excited.
Being a lover of all things arts and crafty, photography is another interest of mine. I treated myself to my first DSLR last year. I have enjoyed playing with my Nikon D3100 and think I get some pretty cool photos, but honestly I have learned little beyond the camera’s auto settings.
Well… I’ve stumbled across a website that I think is going to help me with expanding my photography knowledge. Kat over at Pare and Focus has an awesome knack for explaining all of that confusing photography technology in language that makes sense to me. And guess what! She also has authored an eBook for GIMP!
Yes siree Bob… I’ve finally found something that actually makes me excited about learning GIMP! In fact I downloaded the book last night and have already learned quite a bit. (Hehe…. my son is going to be so proud.) I’m starting to get a grasp on how the tools work and I think I’m going to like it! If you want to learn more about GIMP go to gimp.org or check out the GIMP book Before and After.
Stay tuned. I hope to learn some new things to share with you!
Happy drawing…. and happy learning!
