My first try with GIMP

I had a little go for the first time with the GIMP program [which is free to download], the background was originally a photo of a big brown toad! The lizard was one of my older drawings which I placed on top. I can't remember what I did exactly as I was just messing about but there were 14 layers. I also wanted to get rid of the grey area round the edge but it wanted to remove other parts to so I left it. I've a lot to learn but I do like the resulting background.


  1. Hi, I run Linux OS on my computer, and I have Gimp installed...wow did not know I could do this...all I have learned is how to swirl pictures...this has inspired me to try out things....what a great picture.
