Hello!

My name is Chris Parker and I’m a photographer and graphic designer that has been using Photoshop professionally since 1991. Yes, I’m that old. But, that just means I have a lot of pro experience to share with you.

I’ve also been teaching other creative artists on how to use Photoshop for the last 10+ years.

This course includes 7 Photoshop courses in 1!  Learn Photoshop retouching, image editing, portrait editing, portrait retouching, RAW retouching, JPG retouching, photo editing, special effects and more.

Check out what a recent student had to say about this Photoshop course…

“Chris is obviously very much in love with what he does. This is equally important as knowing stuff and being able to teach stuff, in my opinion. I am 100% satisfied with this course. He responds to questions within a day! And he obviously cares about what his students think. I totally recommend this course for beginners. He covers everything and he seems to know everything about photoshop.”

~ Busra

…and another…

“A heart felt thanks to Chris Parker for such a comprehensive Adobe Photoshop course. Highly recommend course for every photographer & graphic designer to become more creative and productive.”

~ Hassan

…and another…

“I have already done several courses with Chris and I think he is a great teaching professional. To be a good teacher, not only do you need high technical knowledge, but you also have to know how to communicate it to the students.

Also, in my case, the English language is not my native language, I appreciate very much that Chris speaks slowly and with a "neutral" accent, which allows me not to have to "rewind" because I have not understood the sentence in English. Thanks, Chris.”

~ Juan

Yes, it is possible to learn everything you need to know about getting started with Photoshop in one course.

With over 33 hours of Photoshop content and 7 Photoshop courses in 1, with more tutorials being added on a regular basis, you can learn Photoshop essentials and advanced projects in this 1 Photoshop course.

The GNU Image Manipulation Program (GIMP) is a free Photoshop like graphic design software program that runs on Windows, Mac OS and Linux.

Well then, why isn't everyone using it?

Even with access to GNU tutorials and YouTube videos the GIMP is still a hard program to learn.

Until now...

Welcome to the most comprehensive single GIMP course available on Udemy:

GIMP 2.8/2.10 Beginner-Advanced: Free on Windows/MacOS/Linux

In this course, which is 12.5 hours in length, I'll take you all the way from installing the GIMP and configuring it to run on Windows to producing banners, book covers and memes that you'll display using Facebook and other social media, Wordpress and HTML.   I'll even show you photo touch up.  In fact, I'll show you everything I know in the natural order in which you should learn it.

So, what makes this GIMP course special?

I'll tell you what...

This course is composed of 13 sections, each addressing a different topic and each averaging 30 minutes in length.

Each section presents one or more small projects that should be completed to demonstrate your proficiency with the material just covered before moving on.

And these aren't bogus projects either.  They actually produce usable results.

I ask you, can you afford just 30 minutes a day for under 2 weeks to learn the fundamentals of the most powerful free graphics program in the world?  (Sorry, I got carried away -- I don't actually know if that's true ;-).

If you do, then enroll in this course and let's get started.

If not...

Watch me create an incredible looking 3D pool table and balls then take the reins and do it yourself.

Produce professional looking book covers with ease.

Distribute memes and other social media graphics on Facebook and 7 other social media sites.

Learn to use HTML from within Wordpress to produce graphics effects attainable only through HTML and CSS.

Learn photo touch up using the GIMP.

All this knowledge and much more is at your finger tips.

And the course is still growing.  I recently added a new section entitled:

Digital Drawing and Painting with a Wacom Tablet

So, what do you say?

This course was originally released as a series of 13 short classes on another online video learning platform.  There is some redundancy in the course which should be skipped during viewing.

This course was guided by the contents of my previous 4 Udemy GIMP courses.  Both learning routes remain viable but I personally prefer this newer, segmented and project focused approach to learning the GIMP.

Installing and configuring the GIMP on Windows is the only Windows specific lecture, all the rest should apply to all platforms (though I do demonstrate using the GIMP on Windows 10).

P.S. Don't forget that Udemy provides a 100% money back guaranty if you return a course within 30 days.

Now, here's what I'd recommend...

You can preview all the lectures in the first and second sections for free.  Watch the first and second sections and if you like it enroll in the course.  If you don't like it then thank you for you time and I wish you the best.

Enough jabbering, I'll see you in the classroom,

THE GIMP course for photographers and graphic designers.  Learn GIMP from a pro photographer.  Everything you need to know in 1 GIMP course for Linux, PC + MAC.

Why this GIMP course vs. others?

Well, I'll let the following students explain why you should choose this GIMP course...

*****  David Cangiolosi

"Another GREAT course from Chris Parker !!! I was new to the photo editing part of photography, downloading (The FREE) GIMP and taking this course by Chris Parker was the right decision for me as a hobbyist photographer who has no need to pay a monthly fee for Photoshop.

Chris covers probably every aspect in this course I could use or ever would use. He teaches by examples which you can follow along to so you get the most out of each example or section of the course. I found it very helpful and enjoyed his style of teaching."

*****  Pierfrancesco Staci

"Extremely detailed and thorough, I am so far extremely positively impressed by the amount of information I am receiving and how nicely I can retain it due to a very friendly delivery method."

*****  James Eyrich

"This is an amazing course he goes through all the tools and explains it all so I can understand what is going on would recommend this course for anyone beginner or advanced something for everyone in here."

*****  Faletolu Roberts

"The step by step process of setting up your work space and tools is so easy to follow. Knowing where exactly to look makes learning a new program less brain numbing and fun so far."

*****  Khetile Mhlongo

"I am extremely happy with the course. I am learning more than just the basics. I am really learning how to make this program my own. I have already purchased another course from this tutor and I am looking forward to that one too."

*****  Rachel Campbell

"I am still taking the course, but can already tell the impact. I come from a Photoshop background but wanted an option that wasn't costing a monthly fee. I am surprised at how much can be done in GIMP, but even more impressed with the instruction. I have never had anyone actually explain all the tools and options to this degree.

I feel way more knowledgeable and know I will continue to love the remaining lectures. **** not to mention I am already purchase another course planning on getting several other courses created by Chris**** So, worth every penny and more!"

*****  Jeremy Kinney

"I was able to go from nothing to a basic understanding and I've only done the first quarter of the course, its been very helpful so far and I'm excited to continue onward."

*****  Rex Graham

"To be honest I have never done online lessons like this before so I have no real reference.  That said, I have learned more in this lesson than I have in hours of YouTube videos.

Great work so far."

*****  Dave Colquitt

"Excellent. Chris knows what he is talking about, presents it well, and is VERY responsive to questions. I recommend the course - and any by Chris - highly."

*****  John Romero

"Instructor is very thorough, and concise. Though I'm already familiar with GIMP, I've picked up at least one new tip or feature I was previously unaware of in practically every lesson."

*****  David Kiger

"I have taken a few courses on Gimp and this is the most detailed step by step Gimp course I have seen so far. You don't rush through the lesson like some courses. You take your time and talk clearly while making everything clear. Thank you for the wonderful course."

***** There are hundreds more testimonials just like these... but, I think you get the idea... So, let's find out everything you'll learn from this GIMP course...

First, this GIMP course is divided into 2 sections;

  1. the Basics...  A complete overview of all the tools in GIMP

  2. the Advanced GIMP projects. Learn by doing.  Once you have the foundation from the first half of the course, you'll continue learning how to use GIMP by working on advanced GIMP projects

This GIMP 2.10 for beginners is designed for, well, beginners!

------> the GIMP Basics

UPDATE: Sections 1 - 7 have been re-recorded and have new photography resources... including new images and a GIMP Made Easy Essentials guide.  Use the guide to take notes as you're watching, print for off-line use for easy reference and quick access to your projects + more.

Section 1: Intro to the course + resources for download

Section 2: learn how to install GIMP for Linux, Windows and/or MAC

Section 3: quick start guide for editing your images, re-sizing and saving for social media

Section 4: quick look at the basics of GIMP.  Including, but not limited to; setting up & customizing your interface, creating new documents, file formats, navigate around your document (pan + zoom), saving & exporting your files and more.

Section 5: learn what layers are and how to use them, learn the 4 types of layers and 4 different ways to customize them, learn what Layer Masks are and how to use for precise editing of your photos, learn what layer boundaries are, adjust them and why they're important

Section 6: learn what adjustment layers are and whether or not you can use them in GIMP.  They're essential for your photography editing.

Additional sections are being re-recorded right now.  Announcements will go out when new sections are added.

Just published June of 2019... Section 7: the "Color of Light".  Learn how color affects your images and how to control for precise editing.

This GIMP course is in the process of being re-recorded.  Although you'll learn all of the following (and more), the order will be changing (see "update" above for recent changes") in the coming weeks...

First, you'll learn how to install GIMP, set up the interface, preferences and more.

Then, you'll begin setting up the GIMP interface for your personal preference and configuring the preferences -->  Yes, I know.  This stuff is boring.  But, it's essential for getting the most out of GIMP.  

Every lesson is created in short bite-size pieces to help you better retain the information and each builds on the next.

1 of the most essential tools in GIMP are Layers.  You'll learn all about Layers and how to work with them.  Plus, you'll learn about another powerful type of layer;  the Layer Mask.  

Hint: a Layer Mask, gives you the precision and control to apply edits exactly where you want them.  

Oh, these are so fun and awesome.  Can't wait to share with you how to take advantage of Layers & Layer masks in GIMP.

Another fun, creative and powerful tool (within GIMP) are Blending Modes.  You'll learn about the 7 distinct types of Blending Mode groups and how to use them to add creative flair to your artwork.

Not one to skimp out and leave no stone un-turned; you'll also learn about the 4 main tools in GIMP...

  1. Selection Tools

  2. Paint Tools

  3. Transform Tools

  4. Color Tools

The Selection Tools, are an integral part of your skill-set.  You'll learn about the 7 different types of selection tools to make your job of "selecting" that much easier.  The selection tools are a big part of the advanced GIMP projects and you'll want to learn the basics first (included!).

You'll also learn all about the Paint Tools and how to use them to; add color, modify color, erase, clone, heal, and much more.

What about learning how to use the Transform tools to align graphics, move, rotate, scale, shear and more?  Got you covered there too!  Check out the basic overviews of each tool and then master them with the advanced GIMP projects.

Next up;  the Color Tools.  Learn how to use these Color Tools to process and edit your photos like a pro.  Learn from my 27+ years as a pro photographer. 

Oh, and I almost forgot about one of my favorite tools in GIMP; the Paths Tool.  Love it!  This tool has a dual purpose and mastering it will go a long way in helping fulfill your creative vision.

Check out the advanced GIMP projects to master the Paths Tool (after the basic overview).  The advanced GIMP projects will give you a lot of practice with it and you will master the Path Tool in no time.

O.k., almost done.  

Let's not forget about GIMP filters and Patterns.  You'll learn how to use both!  Learn how to download and install Patterns created by other artists.  Plus, you'll learn how to apply the GIMP filters to enhance your creative artwork.

------> the Advanced GIMP projects

This is where all the fun begins.  Not that we don't have fun in the first half!  You'll just take your creative learning to a whole new level.  

How? By taking what you've learned in the Basics and amplifying it with advanced projects.

First up; Do you find it odd that GIMP does not have basic shape tools?  

I do. No worries.  

You'll learn how to create basic shapes in GIMP; rectangles and squares, free-form shapes, circles, and triangles too... oh my!

Did I mention that I'm a pro photographer?  Then, you'll want to learn how I use all the tools in GIMP to edit....  

Learn my 3 step editing workflow I've used on hundreds of weddings and thousands of portrait sessions.  How I use each of the Color Tools, how I use Levels and Curves, how I retouch with Clone and Heal, how I dodge and burn, and much more.

Plus, I'll show you how to process RAW files for GIMP.  Watch me do a complete edit, from start to finish, on a Nikon RAW file, a Canon RAW file and a JPG file.

Then, we'll take your GIMP learning experience to a whole new level with the following projects...

  • How to add text along a path

  • How to add an image to text

  • How to create text out of grass

  • How to create a reflection of your text

  • How to make a SuperHero fly out of a monitor

  • How to add smoke to your image

  • How to add a source of light to your image

  • How to separate a subject from the background (and save for the web)

  • How to install the free Nik Collection (awesome plugin for creatively editing your photos)

  • and much more...

...You see, these are not the only projects.  I have a dozens more.  Which means, once you sign up for this course, new tutorials will be added on a regular basis.

What are you waiting for? Now is the best time to sign up for my complete GIMP course...  before I decide to increase the price.  

Looking forward to sharing with you my photographic knowledge and how to use GIMP.

Regards,

Chris Parker

Even if you have no prior experience in drawing, or computer art, we'll take you from the very basics. By investing in a structured course like this you'll learn faster and more effectively than on your own, just check-out our latest reviews.

We provide challenges in every video to cement your knowledge, an active community of students and instructors to help you if you get stuck, and continuous updates to the course to improve the learning journey.

How is the course structured?

  1. We start by helping you master GIMP's interface

  2. Then we constrain you to just 8x8 pixels, to get you started

  3. Moving on we add colour, contrast and more to bring your images alive

  4. In section 2 we increase our canvas to 32x2 and beyond

  5. By the end of the course you'll be able to create great looking 2D icons.

Looking for 3D art, Blender, Unity or more? Check out our other courses, let the green leaf logo be your guide :-)

Sell More of Anything with Professional Looking Graphics 

Though you shouldn't judge a book by its cover, the truth is that most people do exactly that.  Why not produce the best impression you can by displaying stunning graphics mixed with text.  Whether you're selling books or some other product, graphics that can capture the customer's attention will give you a leg up in differentiating yourself from your competition.

Don't worry, you can still create amazing images for the Web and beyond using the basics of the GIMP.

Hello,

Welcome to my beginners course on digital drawing using the free GNU Image Manipulation Program (GIMP).  My name is Brian Jackson and I'm a top rated Udemy instructor of over 48 courses covering a wide range of topics from writing, self-publishing and book covers to 2D animation.

This course provides an introduction to both digital drawing using a tablet and the GIMP program.  Hardware and software usage details are woven throughout lectures on fundamental drawing techniques and example drawing workshops.  Each section concludes with a workshop in which all the previously discussed features are demonstrated followed by a project you can work on independently and submit for review and comment.

In an attempt to get you drawing fast, this course begins with tablet selection and installation and basic GIMP usage.  That's enough to get you drawing.  Then we'll add information on using layers, and digital editing.

Unlike other courses, this course assumes no former knowledge, begins at the beginning and teaches you drawing and the software rather than simply having you watch me draw (though you'll get plenty of that as well).

This course is designed for drawing and illustration enthusiasts who would like to learn how to draw digitally using a tablet and the free GIMP software product (that runs on Windows 10, Mac OS and Linux).  The ideal student is someone new to digital drawing and possibly even drawing itself.  Someone who has an idea trapped inside them that they need to express through a creative medium.

Thanks for your interest in GIMP digital drawing.  I hope you're excited to get started.  If you are, go ahead and click on the enroll button.  Don't forget the Udemy 30 day money back guarantee.  This should make your decision an easy one.

So, I'll see you in the classroom,

Whether you are an employee, business owner, content creator, teacher, author, or social media maven, over the last few years it has become CRUCIAL to know how to do a little bit of everything online. With this course as your guide, you'll learn how to confidentially and professionally manage your OWN unique, original images for your website, blog, eCourse, eBook, presentations, or social media pages.

Save time, money, and sanity by learning how to finally choose, edit, and enhance your own images without having to always pay someone else to do the most basic but essential tasks  for you.

This course was created especially for complete beginners as well as people who fight with technology who want to gain new and valuable image editing skills that can be used every day.

The techniques discussed in this course are software independent, meaning I can show you how to make better, more professional images regardless of which software programs you are using. You'll learn essential imaging do's and don'ts, tips about which images are safe to use regarding copyrights, how to properly save your images (so you don't lose them in the abyss,) and my very favorite "art school" hacks that will help take your images from so-so to PRO in no time even if you don't yet have Photoshop or Gimp.

You can watch and follow along with me as I show you how to make the most useful and essential image fixes in whichever program you have or feel most comfortable in. If you ever decide to switch, you'll have all the lessons available to you in BOTH Photoshop and GIMP as one go-to resource.

Here is a list of the keys things that you will learn by watching this course:

First of all, you'll gain a deeper understanding of what it takes to create an entire game from A to Z, from art to programming to sounds to game design! By the end of the course, you'll be able to make your very own 2D local multiplayer strategy games, which you can share with family and friends.

The game we will bring to life is simple, but will teach you the fundamentals of many tactic/strategy games such as turn by turn systems, attack & defense, moving characters on grid-like environments, placing units, gaining resources and more! All with the C# programming language- if you understand the basics of coding, then this is the perfect opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of those fundamentals (such as functions, arrays, vectors, if statements) and learn extra tips and tricks related to turn by turn games.

You'll also learn how to make your own game characters. Starting with sketching, inking, and coloring using a 2D art application like Photoshop (but most of what is taught can be done using free alternatives, such as Gimp or Krita).

We will also learn how to rig and animate those characters inside of Unity using a simple bone-based method.

There will also be tutorials on particle effects, sounds, game juice, and UI. Everything that is needed to make a game will be covered in well-edited, fun, engaging videos. This course will immerse you in the life of a game creator, as you go on an epic journey to bring your visions to life.

Why learn from us?

My brother and I created this course to share our passion for making games and help others bring their unique visions to life!
We've been teaching aspiring game developers how to use Unity, code with the C# programming language, and make game art and animations for over two years. Our tutorials have been viewed by thousands and are very popular, every day we get dozens of developers thanking us for helping them out on their own game dev journey!

We've not only made tons of tutorials but we've also created plenty of games using Unity, both 2D, and 3D, on Itch io, Newgrounds, and Steam.
So we know what it's like to create a complete, polished experience from A to Z, and really want to equip you with the right tools and knowledge so you can do the same!

Thanks to huge advances in computer technology making your own book covers is not nearly as hard as it used to be. You can use drag and drop image building apps online. My favorite of these is Canva.

For those few things that you cannot do inside Canva, there is also no need to invest in expensive image manipulation software because you can do them in Gimp for free.

Even though designing a book cover can get a little technical, it's a skill you can easily learn. In this course I will teach you the software you need so that you too can get stuck in and create great covers for your books.

Designing images for book covers and designing them for social media banners and posts is very similar, so once you know how to use the software, you can go on to create all the marketing material to go with your book as well.

If visitors are not ready to do business through this site, they’ll be more so after scrolling down to the first section that includes 4 benefit driven services.  You’ll learn how to create 4 custom icons from scratch and tips on how to sell your client on showcasing their benefits.  Plus, additional tips throughout for communicating with your client on why you designed the page the way you did.

Then, I’ll give you some UX design secret tips for quickly, and easily adding multiple listings vs. redoing by scratch.  This section of the GIMP web design project has a lot more pro tips.  One of which is arranging, styling and choosing fonts to make it easier to read content.

We’re not done with what you’ll learn in this project!  In fact, I give you 2 services you can up-sell your clients on (you’ll put in your design first since it’s so easy to do and then you'll up-sell the services.).  One of which can put more money in their pocket with very little effort.  Your clients will have a hard time turning down money.  The hard part is deciding how much to charge.  Which is entirely up to you.

GIMP Web Design Project 5

Your next UX web design project consists of taking an old, out-dated, government text based design and creating a more image based web design. 

Why the switch?  The “government” is trying to sell their popular tourist destination with a text based style.  However, this "N.Y. State Park" would be better described with photos.  After all, an “image is worth a thousand words”.

  • You’ll start off with a simple Header and Hero section.  

  • Then, you’ll learn more about typography choices and styling, in GIMP.  

  • How the right choice of images is important and the wrong choice can be a disaster.

  • Learn how to create a pop-up Hover state, in GIMP

  • and much more

GIMP Web Design Project 6

Oh boy! You’re in for a treat.  

This is my favorite UX web design project for GIMP users!  You’ll learn something you didn’t know was possible… how to find out what font was used from a (flattened) JPG file!  Yep, I’ll show you where to upload your file and a computer will crunch it’s database of 100,000+ fonts and tell you which one was used!

So far, most of our UX web design projects have had a modern, clean UX web design style applied to them.  Not this time.  We’re going all out on transforming a plain, boring site with a bold, fun retro web design style.  Oh, and we are still focusing on an awesome (UX) user experience with the overall web design.

You’ll start off by creating a retro slider for the Hero section.  Then you’ll design an e-commerce like body section featuring old-movie posters.  Plus, I've added more pro UX (user experience) web design tips and useful tips for using GIMP!

GIMP Web Design Project 7

By now, you’ve learned just about all my UX web design tips.  Don’t despair.  I have a few more pro tips and GIMP tricks to share with you in this final UX web design project.

Including, how to transform an ordinary, boring, plain, photo into a work-of-art; a Watercolor (in GIMP).  No worries.  No need to buy a canvas, brushes or watercolor paint.  I’ll show you how to do it all in GIMP!

Once you’ve completed all 7 GIMP UX web design projects you’ll have mastered over a dozen keyboard shortcuts (that will help you design faster). 

Plus, if you applied my suggestions and did the 7 web design assignments, you’ll have 7 UX web designs developed from YOUR creative vision to use in your portfolio.  All of which, can be submitted to our Q&A section for feedback or just to show off your new UX web design skills!
