GIMP Tutorial - How to Create a Professional Flyer (2018)

487 ratings | 43727 views
In this tutorial, I show you how to design a professional flyer using the latest version of GIMP. I show you how to erase an image background, how to use the new blend tool and vignette tool, how to edit your image to blend it in with your composition, and how to add background effects like paint splatter and laser lights.

Too fast and not very helpful for those using version 2.10.8. Right at the beginning with the foreground/background gradient application isn't the same here as it is on the latest version.

Please can somebody help - I can see the layers in the bottom right, but how do you get the different images available at the top? if I copy an image in, it copies on to the image I already have open. thanks
ZD (11 months ago)
Davies Media Design thank you so much! I find Gimp has quite a steep learning curve but your video helps a lot :)
Davies Media Design (11 months ago)
Go to File>Open to open an image into GIMP. This will bring it into a separate window. Let me know if that helps.

I'm at the paintbrush part for the splash effects 11:30 in, but the brush keeps drawing on the image instead of just the background . Btw I have made a new paint splatter layer

This is impressive, when our web design class teacher said we had to use Gimp for our project i was sad at first because i was so used to Photoshop. Now i see what you can do with Gimp, it's amazing. This tutorial is a great example for my deadline.
Davies Media Design (1 year ago)
Glad this tutorial helped you out! Yeah, GIMP has some great functionality and it's going to get better with the next releases coming out (2.10, 3.0, 3.2). And, of course, the best part is it's free!

I was highly impressed until you added the 'pink glow around the model'. With one exception, very impressive.
