Photoshop is an easy program to use, unlike gimp. Gimp is a bit confusing, and misleading. I had once used gimp, so I can't really help you with it because it was long, long ago.
Hello guys :3 Now, you've all seen how I edit, the black and white pictures to full colour and such. We're not going to jump into that right away, though. First I'll provide you the tools to edit like I do, fancy fonts, and places to get brushes, I will post the gimp link because it is free, but you're on your own with gimp. I haven't used gimp before, only once if I recall, and my memory on how to work it is a bit dim.GIMP:http://www.gimp.org/Place to get fonts.

In the end, this is all their is to it. You colour following the same rules as I posted above. After that their isnt much to it - if you want to add anything else to the picture, you simply make another layer and do what ever you wish.
