    Gimp help, anyone good with it?

    Hey guys, I'm looking for some help. I've been working on a theme using Gimp to do all the image editing and I'm starting to struggle with some of the stuff. I've read all of the tutorials that Gimp has and done searches for what I'm trying to do when I get to an image I'm lost with. Right now the best way I can do most of the images is going pixel by pixel and changing the color, using dump where I can, and then dropping the opaqueness around the edges pixel by pixel. Some images I can change the hue/saturation and it works. The thing I'm having the most problem with is doing like a glow around a button when it's pressed or something. Is there anyone that uses Gimp that is better at it then me that might be able to hold my hand and get me through this lol it's taking way to long to finish this then it should. Sometimes I spend 45 minutes editing one image pixel by pixel lol. Thanks guys!

    Try using the Magic Wand to select things. If you left click to select an area, & drag the mouse left to right, you can choose how much the wand will select.

    Coloring can be difficult if it's not pure white. The magic wand will work or the Lasso will help too. Here's some ideas;
    Select an area, create a new layer on top of it, fill the selected on the new layer with your color, then adjust the opaqueness until you like it.
    Or, select the area & bucket fill it. There's different coloring options below the tool bar that helps.
    Or, if it doesn't make more work. Make the image black & white & color it how you like.

    For the glow, plug-ins help with that.

    You'll put those in different folders depending on what they are. Use this as a guide for where to put them;
    C:\Program Files\GIMP-2.0\share\gimp\2.0\?
    or
    C:\Users\YOUR-NAME\gimp-2.6\?

    The ? mark will be specific folders. Once you get that far, look at the file extensions of what you downloaded & what's in those folders to know where to put them.

    If you need more help, just ask us
