I would love to make a siggy but have absolutely no idea where to begin. If you could offer any assistance I would appreciate it. I tried to upload a picture and was not successful. If you could help me start maybe I could finish on my own. Thank You so much.

Gimp won't download for me, when I click "the direct link" because GIMP never starts downloading for me, it takes to a page that says I'm not connected to the interent, but at the same time I'm having an IM and posting on JM????

I went to the GIMP website to dl it and saddly it said that the files were CORRUPTED :sad: I was really looking forward to making siggy. I am gonna try it one more time and see if i can get it to DL properly.... I would just go out and buy PSP but its a pricey thing to purchase... maybe i'll get it for my birthday this yr lol.

Strange! It is a free program so it shouldn't be trying to charge you! Try downloading from this link http://www.gimp.org/

Okay, I'm trying this for the first time and first i want to say thank you. it's really great of you to be teaching all of us how to do this...

But i'm really confused. I've been opening new layers and adding pictures and graphics and i thought i was doing well, but i can't see the different layers now. all i can see is the current layer i'm working on. i tried to click on the eyes on the right box, but that didn't work either. how do i get the pictures behind one another to view everything. it's just a bunch of check boxes and then i can't see anything else. this is really confusing.

thanks for your help. I'm really trying to learn how to make a siggy and i downloaded gimp. maybe i just need to play with it more. i'll try again tomorrow, but any help you could give would be great!

When you are making the new layer are you adding a background to it, or accidelty merging it down to the backgroud layer?

If you can get me a screen shot of what your layers palate looks like I can figure out whats up.

Well, I've been starting on the background, which is my picture. and then when i add the new designs i select open in new layer. but then i can't see any of the other layers. I ended up closing everything, but let me see if i can do it again.

okay, i finally figured out the layers, but now i imported a new image and it just keeps saying that the layer is floating. how do i correct that?

and how to i round out my images on my pictures and can i bend the text to be more rounded as well?

Thanks again,

okay, i tried to insert a screen shot using print screen and pasting it in here but it didn't work. how do i do it again?

i'm so sorry to keep bugging you and thanks again for all of your help!

Okay, i think I figured some of it out, but I would still like to know how I make the picures rounded and how I can bend text. I finally got the layer thing. and I will def have to go back and redo the lesson on text. mine did not come out as nice as i'd of liked.

thanks, what do you think of my first siggy????

I don't want to read all the posts, but I have a MAC Computer and I tried to d/l GIMP but it wouldn't take.
Is there some other system to use other than GIMP that will work on a MAC?

Is there by chance some where that I maybe passed by the thread, But a lesson on how to blend two images together, or possibly even more then 2 images together in GIMP? I know how to do it in photoshop but I want to try it out in Gimp.

Wow, this whole thread only makes me even MORE impressed by you ladies who have actually made siggies! I managed to download Gimp, and I can open a photo on it, but then I just sit there staring at it with absolutely no idea of what I should do next. I don't think that there's a creative bone in me.

I've been using gimp for awhile now, and when I opened it today it looked nothing like what I had yesterday! I can't right-click the layers in the layers dialog, it doesn't seem to want to to do anything the way it was yesterday. I uninstalled and installed again but it's still doing the same thing! What could have possible happened overnight?

EDIT!
Ok I feel like a complete idiot, I figured it out. I had to undo history tab opened not the layers tab! DUH!
