Write a tutorial

Do you have something that you want to share with other Gimp users? This is the place to do it.

If you want us to have a look at a tutorial, contact us and write a short message telling us what the tutorial is about, if you have a final result photo to look at as well that would be cool :)

You can do it

Writing a tutorial is not that hard, you don’t have to be a Gimp genius and know all the tricks and techniques, you just have to know ONE good trick or technique.

If you for example know how to make a good web button, but you don’t know anything about photo retouching that’s not a problem, you don’t need to know photo retouching to write a tutorial on how to create a button.

Some legal things to keep in mind
  • Your tutorial cannot violate copyright in any way. This includes other tutorials, if you find a tutorial somewhere else that you like, you cannot simply rewrite it and claim it as yours.

  • Resources such as photos and brushes must have a license that allows them to be used commercially without cost. (credit is fine though) . If you are unsure if the photo or brush can be used, feel free to contact us and we will help figure it out.

  • You must be the author and owner of the tutorial, don’t try to submit someone else’s tutorial!

  • You’re tutorial may be edited before publishing.

  • If you submit a tutorial, you grant mygimptutorial.com and it’s owner a perpetual license to publish the tutorial and to distribute the xcf file.

Some design things to keep in mind

There are a couple things you need to know before you write a tutorial:

  • There is no time pressure, you can spend as long as you want writing your tutorial, it is better to spend a lot of time than rushing it.

  • Images used in a tutorial cannot be wider than 600px, or else they won’t fit on the website.

  • Remember that we are here to help you. If you have any questions, if you need help with something, if you are unsure of something, or you want feedback on what you’ve done so far, just contact us.
