I’ve been teaching myself how to use GIMP…

…because Adam Dreece got me thinking about how to be more effective (while, simultaneously, less or at least equally annoying) on Twitter.  And these get MUCH more interaction than plain Tweets do:

Not perfect, any of them– I can tell I’m a nub at this image-creation game– but effectiveness is improving.  Woo!

  1. Coolness! I ❤ GIMP and prefer it to PhotoShop that we use at school. Next, you might want to work on learning Inkscape. It is free and open source like GIMP but is completely vector based like Illustrator so it is much easier to work with when it comes to dealing with text like on your images here.


      1. I agree. In Inkscape the text stays vector and scalable until you are ready to export it so you can get the sizing perfect with no pixelization or fuzzy edges.


  2. Grrr, I tried GIMP a year ago. I made some passable images, but was maddened by the lack of some basic features (probably my ignorance), so it sits on my desktop sneering at me. I’m still saving for Photoshop.
