I have been starting to use GIMP a bit more and am trying to learn the whole layers concept. I used it to create my shop banner and to make a little ad for my ASL playgroup, but I know there is much, much more it can do. I have been perusing sites and found a couple good ones that simplify things a bit since they are tutorials written specifically for those planning to use GIMP for digital scrapbooking. As I learn more, hopefully I can post some ideas here.
One tutorial I want to go through is at this site: Scrapbooks Gone Digital
I will try to work on a simple explanation for red eye removal this week for a tutorial since I know it was difficult for me to find one when I was searching.
