GIMP tutorial #02

I have told you about GIMP, a free Image Manipulation Program. It works really well, and I´d say as well as Photoshop, and the bonus...IT´S FREE!


I took the originals of few of my photos that I´ve manipulated in Photoshop and re-did them in GIMP, getting the same results.


But as always, it´s best to start slowly and get to know the program and first of all, learn how to download GIMP. For those of you who don´t have gimp, here is a link to how to download it:


The tutorial with explanation images is here:


1. Select from the menu: File → Open and choose the Image you´re gonna work with


2. Select from the menu: Colors → Brightness-Contrast...


3. Drag the slider up to 20 or write the number 20 in the box next to contrast. Click OK. Play around with different numbers in both brightness and contrast.
