How to Use This Course

Image Creation and Editing will teach students the basics of how to edit and manipulate an image. The course will use the free software GIMP, which is similar to Adobe Photoshop but available online as a free download. This course will not only teach students the basics of how to use image editing software but also what kinds of effects can be applied to digital photographs, how various editing features work, and ways to find just the right tool to bring out the best in every photograph.

Course Introduction

Hello! Welcome to Image Creation and Editing. The purpose of this course is to teach you how to use GIMP, a free image editing software. If you have ever used Photoshop, then this will be somewhat familiar to you, as these are similar programs. If you haven’t used Photoshop before, fear not! GIMP is not nearly as hard to use as it looks. Once you understand the basic functions of this program, you will be able to use it easily and effectively. You’ll have plenty of opportunity to take your own photographs in this course, but if you don’t have photos available to edit, I’ll provide some in the lessons for you to work with. (If you’d like to brush up on your digital photography skills, check out Michele Peterson’s Photography course.) Are you ready? Let’s get started.
