This tutorial is for GIMP version 2.8 and is intended to teach beginners how to use the software. GIMP is a great free alternative to Photoshop.

In gimp 2.10.6 there is a new drop shadow filter that works different: i cannot apply drop shadow bellow selections, it must be with a new layer with the inverted shape. I know that the legacy filter is still available, don't know how long, but you could create a review of this effect using the new filter? It may help us to adapt to the new drop shadow
For anyone using GIMP 2.9 or 2.10 and thinking this doesn't work. It does. You just now need to select "Drop Shadow (legacy)". It's also under "Filters/Light and Shadow". It seems they changed the way Drop Shadow works and the new DS will not put a shadow on the inside of a selection. Thankfully the old method is still available, now marked as "legacy". Hope this helps someone.
Hey Nick I'm really enjoying this tutorial, but is there to use this kind of application on lets say skating rink ice? my podcast is doing a review of the new I,Tonya movie so I'm trying to creat art to promote... any suggestions? there isn't any good ice tutorials out there...
great video but it would be nice if you explained a little more about what you are doing as you are doing it. I am a beginner so maybe your video isnt meant for me. I can replicate your process but dont have a very good understanding of what it is I am actually doing. What is alpha to selection?
Man, love your videos. A week ago I started watching and actually ended making a logo for a group I belong to. Hoping to make it into a t-shirt soon. One thing I would like to see you do is a website mockup either in gimp or Inkscape, which is why I found your channel. Thanks for the awesome tutorials and success to you good man.
Great stuff! I wish at some point you'd make a tutorial for an imaginary festival poster in Inkscape. Similar to what google image search finds with "festival vector poster" but simplistic enough to fit in a tutorial!

Hi, my name is Ross Williams . Let me share a personal story with you. Back in 2007, I held an excellent position at a large IT company with a nice monthly salary. By 2008, the great recession hit. The company ran into financial problems and was forced to lay off over 50% of its staff. Unfortunately for me, I was included.
So there I was stranded, unemployed, with all the bills to pay and a family to support. Where I lived, such jobs werent easy to come by. So I decided to do a little research. I spent many sleepless nights on the web just searching for something to do, anything that could help support me and my family. I just wanted a way to make money, and not lose it, as I soon found to be the case with numerous internet scams.
Just like you, I often stumbled upon all types of web sites offering me some money matrix scheme, promising me all the money in the world. Yeah, right! From stuffing envelopes, Multi Level Marketing, High Yield Investment Programs, to selling all types of useless products. You name it, Ive been there, done that.
Finally, I came across something that worked.
Online advertising has skyrocketed over the past few years. In 2015, companies spent close to $50 billion advertising online. That figure is expected to increase substantially in 2016. What does this mean for you? A lot more money could be going into your bank account this year. Thats IF you take advantage of this secret system.
Companies worldwide are desperately searching for people just like you to type up their ads and post them online, and theyll pay you nicely in return. Its a win-win situation. They get more customers, you get paid. Its as simple as that. These companies have cash, LOTS of it and theyre eager to share it with you. All types of individuals around the world are using this system to make more money than they ever could working in a boring, dead-end job. You can work part-time or full-time, its all up to you.
