Hi everyone!

I am not new to scrapbooking, but new to digi scrapping! I'm so excited. My DH just downloaded GIMP for me the other night and I've been spending all my free time playing with it!

I'd love to hear any tips and tricks of the trade from all of you!

As soon as I finish a page I'll be sure to post it

I was wondering if any of you have ever used or heard of GIMP? All the info I have found out there talks about PSE or other programs but not GIMP....

I've heard of it and used it to alter an image for a message board I run. But I never could really figure it out so for digital scrapbooking I use PSE.

I've heard it is very similar to Photoshop, so I am sure you will be able to use PS tutorials.

I've used Gimp. I am sure you can use it for digital scrapbooking. It's a good program especially for being free. I primarily use PSCS3, but I have used Gimp. I'll help as I can.

Hi I use GIMP, I'm new to digi-scraping but I've used it for other stuff as well. If I can help, feel free to yell.
