I am sometimes asked for tips and tricks for using graphical software. I think most people don't need anything as expensive as PhotoShop; GIMP is as good as PhotoShop for all intents and purposes you're likely to have. I must admit that I know of no quick ways to get good at using it; I recommend getting bored and making bullshit for your own amusement, and to keep doing it for years.

That is what you'll find below: the bullshit, in reverse chronological order, that was my path to becoming good at using graphical software.
