    ok, ive been using picasa, which is now becoming a bit limited so I decided to download GIMP. From what I can gather it is quite advanced in terms of manipulation. However it seems if I find a tutorial that if I want to try an effect the tutorial assumes you know other commands and tools in GIMP already. Does anyone know if there is actually a manual for GIMP in paper format or a proper manual that can be downloaded?
    thanks

    Try GIMP Documentation

    Can't vouch for how good it is.

    Also google "GIMP manual". You'll get plenty of hits

    I use GIMP and love it. However learning it is a lot of trial and error as I have yet to find a decent users manual. There is a lot of user info on the web, but no one nice and concise document. At least I have yet to find it.
    There are some good youtube videos though.

    LOL Finally someone who understands my pain....:mrgreen: I have the same problem...I can't figure GIMP out. Although I have used the website Samanax has posted I still can't figure everything out. Just takes time and practice.
