so you want to make graphics or edit pictures but don't want to feel like a noob using paint. well don't worry you are not the only one, my studies show that 8 in 10 people don't know how to do graphics.

The first point to remember is you are not only limited to photoshop to make signatures.

1.gimp great program lots of possibilities very good support

2.paint.net oh don't be scared now because it has paint in it don't mean its paint this actully is paint.net no not a websites name but a program well actully it is a website but anyways this can do many things layers all that good stuff.

pics pics everyone loves pics.

gimp

www.gimp-tutorials.com/


gimp.org/tutorials


and paint.net


painttuts.com


photoshop.com

gimp.org

paint.net


notes/disclaimer

paint.net is the website where you download the program and the programs name so dont get confused.

photoshop is not free.

gimp and paint.net also supports plugins

There are also other programs out there not that i know of but these are tested by me.

In my opinion photoshop is fun to use, you can do many advanced stuff if you know how. gimp was a little hard for me but there are dozens of tutorials. paint.net is quick and simple and can get advanced also.


YOU SHOULD NOT TRUST THIS TUTORAIL IT WAS WRITTEN BY SOMEONE THAT SUCKS AT GRAPHICS AND BEEN ONLY AT IT FOR 2 MONTHS.

o yea how could i forget particapate in all the gfx contests on the web.

ummm have fun :thumbsup:

GIMP is what I use. Its by far the best when you don't want to pay 650$ for PSCS3, or risk getting caught with extremely expensive pirated software....

You know that the screenshot of the GIMP you have up there is pretty outdated. They've got a new 2.4 stable release which looks much better. Thats got to be like 1.0-2.0, because 2.2 even looked better than that.
