I from Belgium, and I've been working with GIMP for about 1.5 years now.
When I started using GIMP I mostly made sigs, no large art. Now I've stopped making sigs and will almost only make large art from now on.
I'm not very active anymore but I still use GIMP to edit pictures from school trips, vacations, etc...
I do not take credit for any of the pictures used in my work. These pictures are taken by friends of mine (and very rarely by me) or are simply googled. If you see a picture that's yours and you don't like it just contact me and I'll take it down.
