25 Gimp Tutorials – Creative & Free

During the 20 years of Photoshop, quite a few free alternatives have come. I yet have to find a program that can replace absolutely all uses of Photoshop, but I believe Gimp comes the closest. And it’s completely free!

So if you want to try a new program to maybe generate new ideas and inspiration, Gimp is definitely a good option for you.

To get you started, make sure to head over to the GIMP-website and get the latest version by clicking here.

Here is a collection of tutorials for you, to show you that a lot of cool things can be done with ease in Gimp.
