I just added another Photoshop tutorial to the Design page for everyone. This time I used Gimp to create the artwork.
In this tutorial you will learn how to use layering, blending modes, and basic composition. In the future I will use Gimp for all design projects. I will provide the Photoshop file but it will be an export from Gimp.
The reason I started using Gimp to do my designs is cost. I can't justify paying a monthly fee to use a program.
Since Gimp is free, it saves me a lot of money, and for the most part does everything Photoshop can do. There is a learning curve since things are not laid out the same in Gimp compared to Photoshop.
