A little while back I made this tutorial for another person, but I thought it might help others just getting started. This tutorial is very rudimentary as it would take too long to tell you everything about the program. You will have to experiment with all the features yourself.

The first four diagrams are of cropping a picture (this is just one of many ways). You can also try experimenting with the lasso tool which works some of the time.









Now I will show you how to assemble your banner. Just like I said before there are many different ways to make your banner, this is just one of them.











The lying Samoyed is mine and is copyrighted to me and is not to be used in any way. Also you will have to excuse my spelling of magnify, I didn't notice it until I already saved it.

I hope this helps you guys some

I'm not going to make a tutorial for Gimp. It's really a very complex program. I'm still getting the hang of it myself. I have only recently figured out the basic's of the program. If you have certain questions about it, I'll see if I can help you with themwink ;).

On the toolbar look for the letter "A" which is the text tool. Click on it, then put your cursor where you want the text to be and start typing; it's that easyhappy :).

When you cropped (cut the dog out using the eraser tool) the picture did you save it as a jpg or a png. If you saved as a jpg it will save it with a background and you will have to re-crop the picture, so please when you are done cropping save it as a png as it will save it without a background.

Please look at diagram #4

You'll have to save it and upload on an image hosting site, like www.photobucket.com You'll have to sign up for an account first but its free.

Did you know?
There are about 900 breeds of sheep in the world.
Did you know?
The figure 8 exercise requires the team to heel in a figure 8 pattern either on or off leash. Generally two of the ring stewards will assist the judge with this exercise by acting as "posts", standing 8 feet apart, that the team walks around to form the loops of the figure 8.
The Kennel Club (UK) system, which is also used by the Australian National Kennel Council[1] and in other countries, is considered the most difficult to earn a title under.
