Recommended for anyone wishing to use something else other than photoshop.
I moved from Windows to Linux so 'lost' Photoshop and decided to learn Gimp. Gimp works in a very similar way to Photoshop in many ways, but there are differences, which is why I bought this book.
The book should be entitled 'Gimp 2.8 for Windows' because in those 82 pages that I have read, virtually everything has been based on the Windows system.
Neither have I have learned anything new in those 82 pages as the author goes to great lengths about installing the progamme [in windows] how to open files etc. etc.. Fine for a newbie but a waste of paper for someone who has a little computer experience.
To be honest, I've learned more about using Gimp from YouTube tutorials than I have from this book, so if you are a Linux user, keep your money in your pocket.
