So a while back I downloaded GIMP. It's like Photoshop only it's free. But it's also very complicated. I've been playing with it and finally feel like I'm getting a little bit of a hang to it. There are some great tutorials on youtube, thank goodness, otherwise I'd been completely lost. The banner I've got on my site is the result of my most recent project. I think it turned out pretty good. Unfortunately, I think I'm becoming addicted to GIMP. I'm designing banners instead of writing. Ugh!
