This project attempts to summarize some of the lessons I've learned while creating online comics with GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation Program).

These documents are based upon GIMP v2.4.6 for Linux. I've tried it out with the latest version (2.6 for Windows), and the same techniques still apply (but there may be better ways now that I haven't tried out).

If you want to comment on these, feel free to post into my forum.
