Some people use "Gimp", which is free. Comparable? Idk. I think Photoshop is the best out there for the average user.

ok... I have GIMP now... and have downloaded all the brush packs I can find......

..... how do I "install" them?

I found threads on devianart that say copy the files into the brush folder within GIMP... but there is no specified brush folder.

I feel like such a noob >.<


Help me obi-wan kenobi, you're my only hope...

Thank you!!!!!!


Are there downloads that you can get for GIMP other than the brushes? I'd like to find fonts and gradients - haven't checked out DevianArt in it's entirety yet

These are just a few places you can get free fonts. All you will have to do with these is place them in your Windows font folder.
The Gimp program will find them there and load them into the program for you. Thats why Gimp seems to lock up sometimes when searching for fonts while loading. If you install a bunch of new ones at once, I would expect your initial launch of gimp to be slow after installing those fonts.

I have to admit I never looked around for other gradients. They may be out there, but idk.


Any other questions let me know. Im not super dee dooper the best with gimp or can claim to know all its ins and outs, but like I said, its all Ive used for 4 years. You tube has TONS of tutorials too.

For super in depth help, you can always go here as well.

Also: Gimp is a memory whore. Try not to run too many other programs while using it or it can and may freeze up on ya.
SAVE your work often!

Thank you, and I prolly will have more questions for you..

.... I had photoshop at one time, until my previous desktop gave up the ghost and died on me. By that point, I no longer had the original DL file for Photoshop, and couldn't find my disk either.

I LOVE doing graphics work, and have missed it. I'm stoked about trying this out!!!

No sweat. And anytime.


Im so on and off with sigs and stuff. I dont really have much time for it so I get all rusty and make bad art.
Other times, not so bad.

Gimp really isnt too bad an alternative to PS. It doesnt have the ease I dont think (Ive never used PS but looking at tuts its all, click this and do that for certain effects, while in Gimp you have to hand do a lot of those), but it definitely has the same capabilities.

Hahaha..... yeah... i wish I could have gotten my hands on that.... my trial ran out a while back...

GIMP is pretty comparable in most aspects so far.. just having to learn my way around it and figure out the way this program works....... miss my gradients and such..

I'm running GIMP okay now so if it starts to slow down on you I found increasing the Virtual Memory helped me a lot.

So far I haven't had any issues with it slowing down... my PC has a dual core processes so that helps.....

I miss my ability to warp text Sad

Working on a new sign... so we'll see how it does.. I need to do the help manual and do some more searches for addons/downloads.

Already did something with my avatar!

warping is it making it curvy or being able to have it kinda "wonky". like it starts small and grows taller in the middle then ends small. i think that ones called fish-eye?

I can text along a path. Make borders through the Grow option etc. Not sure what you were/are looking to do?

I like how you have it. If it is in layers though, Id maybe drop the opacity on the black label and valkurie text a little.

Yes, it's in layers... didn't even think about opacity.. thank you!


Oh... and can you create renders in GIMP? I was trying to figure out how to cut out images last night.. and wasn't having much luck...
