I’ve never been a public speaker but I bit the bullet since I keep getting asked to do these with sound.

This is going to be a series aimed at helping anyone new to gimp and how to get going from a fresh install. There are plenty of guides on the net for installation so I’ll leave that to you.

The series will cover everything from the first opening, setting preferences, installing filters and plugins, and then doing an actual project. I’m sure I’ll screw up along the way, so please post to the linked forum thread for anything I missed or want more information on. If it’s not planned for a future episode of this series, I can address them here.
