Click the image to open in full size.



Adding text to an image:

1. Click the button that says A, and click and drag your mouse on your image so it creates a box.

Resizing an image:

1. First, make sure you only have one layer in the box on the right. If you have more than one layer, you will need to merge them together.

For example, I have 3 layers in this picture so I need to merge them together to create one.

Click the image to open in full size.

2. To merge two or more layers together, right click a layer and click Merge Visible Layers.

Click the image to open in full size.

3. Click the scale tool and click on the image. Another window should appear.

Click the image to open in full size.

4. You can drag the corner to make the image smaller or larger, or you can change the width and height by typing it in the popup window. Then press scale.


Click the image to open in full size.



Creating a new layer:

1. Click Layer>New Layer. A popup window should appear.

Click the image to open in full size.

2. In the popup window, you can change the size of the layer and choose if you want the layer to be transparent. Press OK.


Click the image to open in full size.



This guide has several things that beginners may need help with. Feel free to request anything else that you would like me to add this guide. I'd be happy to add to this guide as more people request things that they would like a beginners guide on. Beginner's Guide to Gimp-Part 2 is coming soon!
