[Gimp-user] floating selection

2007-09-29 Thread carol irvin

Most of this art work was done on Photoshop and my aim is to be able to do it on the Gimp. I'm already doing some of it on the Gimp but it is a transition when you've been doing things one way for a long time. Here are my links to see the work. I don't see any reason why I shouldn't be able to

Sven, I have an idea for something which might be fun to do as a group and educational as well. Each person (who wanted to participate) would take an art step phase further using GIMP until we had a completed art work. For example, let's say you'd start it using a brush. Then maybe I'd go into
