Hum.  The Wayback Machine does not seem to have that version any more.

This address does have the whole tutorial just now:

https://web.archive.org/web/20091004142010/http://world.std.com/~mmcirvin/gimp_tutorial/

If anything is missing (pages, pictures, etc.) try different dates.

Maybe somebody should mirror or, horror of horrors, update that thing.

Or we can ask pakeez for a little more detail on what a "complete
portrait tutorial" should have in it.  What exactly do you want to do to
pictures of people?  We have ways, and probably the right tutorials to
get you well started, but "portraits" are a very big subject

Portrait work has many aspects - composition and cropping, color and
light correction, removing blemishes and unwanted textures, enhancing
contrast and color in selected areas, etc.

For high resolution work, one also needs to learn about exporting photos
in RAW format, importing them into your image editor, etc.

My favorite beginner tutorial for photo editing with the GIMP is this
one; the website has closed but lives on in the Wayback Machine:

https://web.archive.org/web/20100105094324/http://world.std.com/~mmcirvin/gimp_tutorial

=or=

https://tinyurl.com/mcirvin

It covers a /lot/ of the basics and most of them apply directly to
portrait work.  The GIMP version used in the tutorial is old, but it
will not be difficult to figure out the differences as one goes along.
Get some similar photos to the ones in the tutorial, do the same things
to them, and you will be well on your way.

I don't agree with this. Experienced users like you and me can figure 
out the important things in the tutorial and find some way to perform 
equivalent things in Gimp. But do we really use tutorials?


At the other end of the spectrum beginners can be put off by small 
differences such as UI changes between Gimp 2.6 and Gimp 2.8, so I don't 
really see them converting a PS tutorial to Gimp.

What type of "complete portrait tutorial" are you looking for?
