If any of the creators of the GIMP read this, thank you very much for creating such a wonderful program.
Over the past several days I set out to create some web banners and such for the new forum I’m not a moderator on.
Its an excellent forum, and I’m not saying that because I’m a moderator either! On to the point though. I’ve never created any graphics of any kind before, and before now I’m never seriously used the GIMP either. Needless to say I don’t count using the pencil tool to draw mustaches on pics from the internet. The subject of helping the website spread and grow quickly came up in the moderator section. To which I contributed the idea of creating some web banners people can post on thier site if they’d like to help spread the news of the new forum around the internet. Being the bold one that I am, and perhaps a bit foolish to, I quickly volunteered to fill the job I had created. Well after several hours learing how to use the GIMP without an instruction manual I managed to come up with two banners, and two buttons to spread the word about the site with. Here is the link if anyone would like to view my first attempt at advertising and artwork:
Post any comments, good or bad that you would like! I would love to hear what anyone thinks. Enjoy the Penguins!
