In this tutorial, I explain how to use gimp for beginners. This video explains how layers work, and goes over some basic selection methods that will be built on in later lessons.
This tutorial was made using Gimp 2.6. If you are running a different version some functions and methods, although slight, may be different. I recommend using the newest version of Gimp.
