Gimp?

Who is familiar with the photo illustrator Gimp and willing to respond to a few questions of mine in regards to a hot chick banner?

Your best bet is going to the graphics forum.

Unfortunately, there isn't a wide range of quality tutorials on GIMP, as opposed to Photoshop. I would probably look at the basic GIMP tutorials and then get a good idea of what you'd like to design (or what designs you'd like to learn to make).

Here's one I dabbled with some time ago. Just did some layer and light effects while tinkering with blending a couple of main pictures together:

Nice. Did you do that with Gimp? Also, have you ever heard of or tried the editor in Picasa?

Yeah, I used GIMP in making that sig. I'm more comfortable in using certain effects and designs with Photoshop than I am with GIMP, but you can still do complex, awesome work with GIMP as well.

No, I haven't used Picasa's editor.

I wish they would have named this program anything other than GIMP.

The controls on Gimp seem to have a steep learning curve and there is not much in the way online tutorial. Would you agree with this?

I'm having more fun learning Picasa at the moment strictly because of the user interface.

You really need to have a grasp of Photoshop to understand Gimp. I haven't used Gimp in a long time, but from what I remember it's not a simple, intuitive program. For the money it's definitely a good purchase, it just takes a while to get going.
