Hi there! So happy to have found you! My name is Carol Sue. I first started using GIMP back when I was editing our wedding photos in 2012. I found out about this site by someone thankfully posting about it in another forum. I'm joining any forum and GIMP site I can find. Not a traitor, just a seeker of knowledge, lol. In the words of Johnny 5 from Short Circuit "Must have input. Neeeed input!" Just recently though I've really started digging my heels in and learning the program more, but I'm still pretty much an infant in comparison with the masters out there. I bow down to you! Lol I'm looking forward to learning all there is to know. I'm naturally an artist who does pencil portrait, video editing and making, hand paints murals, Christmas ornaments, and just about anything someone asks of me to either paint or draw I do my best to create. I also love doing customized pieces of furniture, as well as refurbishes furniture for a living. Currently, I'm working on editing some photos I took of my friend's son's birth. I'm attaching what I've done so far. It's not fantastic but it's a start, right? I just did a lot of airbrushing and blending of colors, played around with the smudge tool a lot. But there is still so much to learn that at times it could make your head spin....am I right? LOL Anyway, glad to be here and looking forward to making tons of new friends here. Take good care and God bless!
