Are you a complete newbie to GIMP? Have NO IDEA what you OR the buttons are doing? Need a good place to start? Then boy, oh, boy this is the tut for you D=

This is a FULL start-to-finish guide (with LOTS of humour ._.), suggesting not only things you can do to make sigs look good... BUT HOW! What to press, where to click, which tools etc. IT'S ALL HERE D=!!! If this tut can't help you learn how to use GIMP then my name is Lady Gaga ._.

Wow great tutorial dude, It was very easy to follow, and helped me learn some new stuff I feel my work is missing.

You're welcome! Sorry for the late reply. It's good to know you picked some ideas up!

I can't find the 'New from Visible' option. Mine goes directly from 'New Layer' to 'Duplicate Layer'. Do you have any suggestions? I think my GIMP may be an updated version, that might be the problem.
FallenAngel1991's avatar
I checked it out D:

I'm using the most up to date version of GIMP and the option is still there. If you can't see the option by right-clicking on the layer in the toolbox then use the top option that says 'Layer' and it MIGHT be in there.

Thank you so much, I'll check it out. The tutorial is amazing, by the way. It's easier than anything I've ever used.
FallenAngel1991's avatar
Thanks, I really did try to pitch it to people who are looking for a get-good-quick scheme, even though they've never used it before :p

Hello. I was wondering if I may add a link to this tutorial in a thread that is for GFX resources on bbs.evony.com. I will of course credit you with the tutorial. I am simply going to be adding a link to this tut with your name in the thread for our local artists to benefit from. The link will redirect to this DA page, so you will get more views and I will be helping out my forum mates.
I have already added the link to the thread, but if you have any problems with it I will gladly take it off at your word.

Thanks a bunch

wheres the opacity?
-looks everywhere but cant find it-
FallenAngel1991's avatar
Sorry, wasn't here to answer D: Opacity should be just above the list of layers in the GIMP toolbox. Should be a bar that's positioned to the right at 100% D:

nvm... i didnt know we could add more tab-thingies in the tool box. lulz.

nao, i cant find ze eye thingy. =.=
FallenAngel1991's avatar
WTF, thought I answered these ._.

Ze eye thingy is also on the GIMP Toolbox if you can get it up. Should be right next to each layer in the layers tab.
This was so helpful! Thanks a bunch!
