When doing a tutorial they go much to fast for us older people..They need to show the first thing then they should wait a minute so we can work along.

I realize this video is a year old, and I have yet to look at your video library, but one or several videos on touching up photographs using Gimp would be lovely, since that's the main thing I'll be using it for.

My version is black and white, all the icons etc have no colour? How do I alter this please?
John McMannis (2 months ago)
Still haven't found an explanation for the crop tool. It's not simple and easy like photoshop. Instead it leaves a checkerboard pattern around the image where it has been cropped and when the image file is saved, this appears as a white border around the image. Why won't it just crop??

I just downloaded Gimp 2.10 and when I bring it up, all I get is a Wilber icon and a list of drop downs on the top left like: File Edit Select View Tools...etc. I do NOT have the toolboxs and Layer option add ons on my screen. What gives and how can I correct it?

I find Gimp kind of CRAP. Cant even see whats written in the pull down menue. Black letters on dark blue background is simply a poor colour scheme.

Hi, I am trying to create a design in which I have to give the effect of a person singing. Let me explain further. There will be a figure of a person around which lyrics will be written[in casual fonts; all letters may not be of same size]. There will be musical symbols inserted in between. The writings may not be in straight lines. How do I create this? I am using GIMP for my designs – not an expert in it though. Please help me out. Thanks in advance. Regards, Ashiq

Hi there, I am a complete beginner and this is a great video for me, very nice and easy to follow. I have a simple question, how did you merge the text and the first layer? You only have background and layer 1 with text. I still have background, layer 1 and lastly the text (3 layers)
