Photoshop with The GIMP - An Overview
Instead of just diving in, please take a moment to follow these 4 points.
Our class will **not** be following all the instructions from the official BBT web site, so please make note of the differences!
Mr. Rich will be instructing the class and also posting videos here so those who miss class can get caught up. Because the GIMP is a free download, you can catch up at school or at home.
Mr. Rich's extra help times are available on the BBT9 page.

For our classes and video series, we'll be using "Single Window Mode" that is brand new in GIMP 2.8.
But before we see that, let's start by making sure the GIMP is installed.
