GIMP Tutorial: How to Design a Web Icon in GIMP 2.10 (2018)

In this GIMP 2.10 tutorial, I show you how to design a flat web icon for use on websites (for web designers) or anywhere you wish to use an icon! I’ll show you how to make the icon design from scratch, including designing the circle, phone, and shadow. I’ll also show you how to be able to create additional colors, and how to export the icon with or without a background with optimal settings for the web.

This tutorial is for beginners but is great for all skill levels. I use GIMP 2.10.0-RC1 (Release Candidate 1) for this tutorial, but you can follow along with older version of GIMP (i.e. GIMP 2.8.22) or with newer version of GIMP.
