*GIMP is a free photo editing program and can be used as an alternative to Photoshop. This design party series will cover tutorials in both programs, but I've opted to (re)start the series with a focus on GIMP. I feel the basic kind of information I wanted to start the tutorials off with will benefit those who may feel that designing graphics and images isn't necessarily their forté, and who may have thought they would never be able to learn the basics otherwise.

I've got a lot of stuff planned for this series, but this stuff is for you guys. If you have an idea for a tutorial please leave it in a comment or email me directly. Check back next week to read about the basic functions in GIMP, and how you can use them to create the graphics you want!
