I totally echo this, @Priceless I never watched any tutorials in the beginning or was taught the trade by anyone, I was self-taught for years. Not saying you should do that, lol, but Gwen is right, practice is everythingI'll have a look online later. I should still have some old gimp stuff bookmarked from the olden days. My recommendation would be practice, practice, practice. Use it as often as you have the time, to get used to all the tools and settings and it'll get easier. I started on gimp. We all start somewhere!
