I love playing around with gimp. The Gimp is a free photo Editing Software for those who don’t know. It’s actually not only for photo editing, you can design anything you want with it really; logos, animations, buttons, you name it.
I’ve been using it lately to make my own graphics to use on my blog or in my blog posts. I may not even use them all but it’s fun none the less.
Originally I was going to make my own brushes and brush sets but then decided to save them as png image files instead. That way I don’t clog up my brush box but they are just as easily used.
I used many photos from finding free pictures online. Free Pictures Online This site is full of free to use however you wish pictures. The only thing you cannot do is claim an un-altered version of the picture as your own. Pretty much anything else goes. Do read the license yourself if you wish to use them.
What I’d like to do is start making custom blog headers with a themed button. If you’d like one please let me know. I’ll post more about that later.
For now I’d like to share some of the images I’ve created from these pictures. Please let me know what you think. I’ve made a couple of collages just to show them off.
