GIMP Brushes

I’ve created some stamping brushes for you to try out! There are two packs, one which includes dandelion brushes, and another with some random shapes that are good for creating stamps and practicing the watermark technique described in the book. Download them by clicking the links below.

If you need help getting these brushes installed in GIMP This Video shows how to do it in Windows, and This Video shows how to do it on a Mac.

Please note, these are not my videos. There are lots of free GIMP brushes available online that are way better than mine. I just wanted to put together some for you to get started. One place I love for free brushes is DeviantArt (which is safe for work for the most part, despite the name).

Working with RAW Files

In How to GIMP, I mention that there are some great benefits of working with the RAW file format if your camera is capable of using it. This article has more information on where to find free RAW file processors, and how to install and use them.

Troubleshooting

If you’re having trouble using GIMP, you can’t dock the Layers Dialog, or a tool isn’t working, the GIMP Troubleshooting Page will help a lot.
