A nerdy hobby of mine, but this came out to be really funny. I am one of the owners of this server, and during the stream I died. I died a lot.

I had a lot of fun colorizing this image. It's pretty cool what you can do with a few layer modes.

This is so cool!  I have never considered re-using old photos in this way.  It’s perfect for surreal, and odd photos because these older photos naturally have that feel to them.  Mostly because the clothing is so out of date, and nobody seems to ever smile in older photographs.  I love it!

I have finally finished up the Questions section of You can now ask any question related to GIMP, and the community can answer the question directly on the website.

With time, I hope to build a repository of questions and answers, helping people learn how to edit photos with GIMP. Feel free to hop on and ask a question!

A few years ago, I had an issue with my photo editing.   At the time, my wife and I were frequently going on hikes, and taking a ton of photos.  I was taking so many great photos, that I was drowning myself.  I would want to share the photos, but didn’t want to share them until I made the edits that I wanted to make to the photos.  At first, I was editing all of the photos that I took, but I slowly burned myself out to the point to where I had hundreds of photos sitting on my hard drive, dormant, untouched, and unshared.

I knew something had to change.  I worked hard taking those photos, and wanted to share them with everyone!  The process I was using to edit my photos was takingforever, and I needed to learn how to speed the process up.  After extensive searching and experimentation, I developed a much more efficient system that supercharged my photo-editing process, allowing me to get all of my photos edited, exported, and shared in a fraction of the time.  I’ve used this system for a few years now.  From this system, I have made a course, teaching photographers exactly how this process works.

This 60-minute lesson (or if you're in a hurry, there is a 5 minute version, too) shows every step of how I made this image, and will enable you to do the same! As always, if you have any +GIMP   related questions don't hesitate to reach out. I'll be glad to help!

Gimp Tutorial - Make a Coffee Takeout Cup From Scratch

I am working on revamping the entire website from the ground up. Gimped! Premium is long-gone, and I am uploading all of those extensive tutorials to my website for free. Last week, I uploaded the Melted Rose Tutorial, and this week I'm finishing up the coffee cup tutorial.

This 90-minute lesson (or if you're in a hurry, there is a 6 minute version, too) shows every step of how I made this image, and will enable you to do the same! As always, if you have any +GIMP  related questions don't hesitate to reach out. I'll be glad to help!

Making a speed-edit version of the coffee cup tutorial in addition to the full-length version.  I have gotten a lot of compliments over how thorough and detailed my lessons are, but have also gotten some requests to "hurry up and get to the point."

When a person is new to photo editing, they want the lessons slow, detailed, and explained.  As they get better, they want their lessons broad, fast, and short.  I'm trying to appeal to both groups by making 2 versions of my longer tutorials, one being the drawn-out long lesson, and the other being the jam-packed short lesson.  Stay tuned, I'll be posting the finished lesson shortly.
