As everyone knows, we here at Feedback Secrets are big on open source software. The reason being is that free, open source software initiatives, such as OpenOffice, Ubuntu, and Gimp, allow small businesses on a budget access to powerful software packages with no out of pocket expense.
I recently started a new social media project revolving around the job search in the Washington D.C. area. As part of this project I decided to create a basic logo using Gimp.
Now I’ve never used Gimp before, though I do have some familiarity with other graphic design packages such as Photoshop and Xara.
What was great about the experience was that whatever questions I had, I was able to find answers for with just four YouTube video tutorials. Two of the videos I spent some time studying and the other two I skimmed to get the answers I was looking for.
