These are tutorials I have created over the years of using open-source programs. They were originally only available in the threads of the online forum GimpTalk. Many people have used them and created very cool results indeed! If you want to see what was made or to comment/show me your own results (I usually comment and try to give feedback although I make no promises), you can find the correct GimpTalk thread by following the links in this list.

These tutorials are (very roughly) ordered after difficulty. The first ones deal with basic uses of GIMP (but users of other programs will find many of these useful too). They then expand onward to specific objects and concepts and finally to full artistic works.
