Well, I just downloaded GIMP for the third time and this time got past the download and look at all the buttons.
:P

So I'd like to join, this time I'm determined to get to making stuff.

Edit:

Okay, next day, having a bit of trouble blending.

It doesn't seem to quite blend, it's more like just erasing bits, and there's still lots of distinction between pictures... help?

Yeah, I sorta find that too. I've been using a mix of smudge and blur and eraser but it doesn't work the greatest :confused:

And I'd like to join :) I'm a sort of aspiring GIMP user - I mostly do avvies just cause I like them :P

I figured out what I was doing wrong... it still doesn't do it too well.... but I had the wrong setting on the eraser.

The sig and avi I have right now I made. They're my best ones so far.

A tip for blending is to make sure that you've selected the "feather edges" option when you're selecting the part of the picture you want to use.

I talked about it a little bit HERE.

Thanks for the welcome! It's not my very first banner- I made a few while I had a Photoshop trial awhile back. lol I made it mostly by fiddling with effects, and hitting undo if I didn't like something. lol

^ Welcome!


Dark: My avies are awful. This Aslan one is the only one that's made it past being saved. I can't get text on stuff very well, it looks really bad usually.
