Elegant Book PosterI 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.

Have Fun!

Welcome to charlesnutting.net

I'm going to be up front here about charlesnutting.net, this site is in no way connected to me selling a book I wrote, plastering the pages with ads to click on, or in no way making me any money.

The whole purpose of this site is to show people things I love to do, display my photography skills (or lack of), and experiment with new web technologies.

It’s also a place for me to jump on my soapbox and rant about the way the programming world is changing. In my Blog there are programming tips on coding JavaScript, and soon other langauges.
