About this Course

Take Your GIMP Skills to the Next Level  

If you're getting bored doing the same old things in GIMP, maybe it's time to learn some new tricks. Come with me on this adventure into GIMP Advanced. In over an hour and a half of lectures, I'll show you some tricks you have yet to learn.  

Learn to Create 3D Book Covers  

Both boxed sets and individual 3D book covers are addressed in this course. Even if you don't work on book covers, you'll find the 3D effects useful in your future GIMP work.  

Learn to Create Reflections in Water  

Let me show you a nice water reflection effect that you'll be able to use in your own graphics.
