So i have a macbook and i downloaded GIMP onto it.
i downloaded all my brushes and fonts that i liked.
then when i try to use the brushes, it's really tiny.

i looked up all sorts of things on how to resize the brushes
apparently, the brushes i have are locked?

how do i unlock them so i can resize? D;

All brushes should be able to be resized, can you take a screenshot of what you are trying to do please?

No, you don't need to edit them, Gimp can resize them dynamically. Click the tool options tab and then there will be a option for size, drag the bar or whatever you want really.

hey! since you helped me before:

so i'm trying to save a pattern onto my gimp.
but apparently (as the front says) gimp 2.8 wont let you save.
how do you get the pattern to work onto gimp?
i exported it and put it into a folder labeled Gimp Patterns.
then i went to preferences on my mac for gimp and enabled that folder.
but the pattern does not show.


edit:
never mind!! i figured it out!
thanks tho! ^^;;

Uhm. So!
A very kind person said I'm allowed to do this.
I would like anyone's opinion on the graphic I just made with GIMP.
I'm new to the program, so I hope I did things okay for my first go!

Critique me please! emotion_bigheart
(Sorry if the image is big >..< )

What I would suggest first and foremost, if you were wanting to use that image on a few different coloured backgrounds make it .png file with a transparent background. It means you can recycle your images for different stuff (Like profiles). Second, I would duplicate the girl layer and set the layer mode to "Overlay" then play with the opacity a little. It makes the colours go a little different but I enjoyed the effect.

Another thing you could do (after you do the overlay trick) is grab the gradient tool and in the tool options click the gradient displayed and a menu will pop down and choose the gradient "Deep Sea". Then select the overlay layer and go to "Colours > Map > Gradient Map". It will make the image a bit cooler in shade and I think it ties in well with her eyes.

Just some ideas, if you need more explanation of how to do it, quote me =]
