GIMP Tutorial: How to Create a Professional Flyer

In this tutorial from my GIMP YouTube channel, I show you how to design a professional flyer using the latest version of GIMP (2.9.8). 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.

This tutorial was designed for beginners, but can be enjoyed by users of all GIMP skill levels. For those of you who are unfamiliar with GIMP, it is what I call the “free version of Photoshop” – and it’s capabilities are truly catching up to Photoshop’s!
