Beginning GIMP pp 109-158 | Cite as



In this chapter, I’ll take a step back from photographs and explore how to use GIMP as a drawing program. I’ll cover the following topics:
  • Making new images

  • Using layers for drawing

  • Drawing lines and curves

  • Changing colors and brushes

  • Erasing

  • Drawing rectangles, circles, and other shapes

  • Outlining and filling regions

  • Filling with patterns and gradients

  • Importing brushes or gradients, or making your own

  • When GIMP won’t draw

  • A drawing project
