GIMP Photo Editing and Graphic Design Lessons for High School and Middle School

I posted some links to my GIMP tutorials recently.  Here are the assignment PDFs that I gave the students.  These, along with the tutorials linked to below, provide a nice introduction to the program.  It was a great improvement over how we started last year.

The assignments might have different names, but these are the topics 
All of the tutorials for these lessons can be found in this post.

  2. I have found a good site that has some good resources on it:
    Learn GIMP: From Greenhorn to Guru in 19 Lessons
    http://www.sitepoint.com/learn-gimp/
    Not a bad site for a flipped classroom or in class tutorials...

  4. Pixlr is a cloud-based set of image tools and utilities, including a number of photo editors, a screen grabber browser extension, and a photo sharing service. The suite was intended for non-professionals, however the apps range from simple to advanced photo editing.

  5. Thank you for this post, very interesting.
    I am a marketer in Grenoble (France). I use on an everyday basis Gimp and Canva.
    Gimp is not very intuitive, you need months and months of use to begin making amazing stuff with it.
    On the other side, Canva is the most intuitive photo editor ever. In 5 minutes you can create catchy images, background that do not look like an old ‘paint’ image.
    So the best combo is to modify your image with Gimp, put it in PNG format, and ‘work’ on it with Canva. Hope it will give you ideas

  8. Here’s an image editor I’ve used for 15+ years: IrfanView – https://www.irfanview.com/. Besides doing most simple editing FASTER than anything else (yes, even Photoshop), you can add it to your system shell & open 3 other editors (like Photoshop) from an image displayed.
    And yes, it’s a free download: https://www.irfanview.com/
