Alice from Alice in Wonderland is known for painting the Queen of Heart’s roses red, to hide that they are in fact white. What would happen if the paint started to drip off of the roses? Well, that’s sort-of what I am teaching you to do here. In this gimp video tutorial, we’re going to use a a lot of Gimp’s tools in combination to make the color of a rose appear to be melting off into a puddle on the ground. In a lot of ways, this is a painting tutorial, and in many more ways it’s a gimp tutorial on photo manipulation. Either way, the video for this lesson is a solid 40-minutes, and it explains everything that was done to make the final product. The tutorial can be seen here

To all of the Picnik fans out there...

I know that you are sad that Picnik is going away, but never fear! There is a great open-source program that you can download for free on your computer that can do everything Picnik can do plus so much more. It's called gimp.I'll be honest, it's...different, but I do tutorials for Gimp and I would be happy to help everyone learn the program! I am going to talk about how you can transfer from Picnik to Gimp do a google hangout on google+. I will also be answering questions posted on my gimped tutorials Facebook wall. If you happen to be a Twitter user, I will also be answering any questions with the hash tag #pic2gimp.

I am doing this both for you and me. I want to learn what you guys did with Picnik so I can best-teach you with great video tutorials to make your transfer as truly painless as possible.This Google Hangout will go for a few hours on this Saturday, starting at 7:00 PM Eastern Standard Time. I'll host this until I'm tired of hosting, or until everyone leaves.I highly recommend that you circle me on Google+ so that you see the google plus post that I will be hanging out in. Post your Q&A facebook questions on my Gimped! Tutorials Facebook Page, or follow me on my Twitter page.
