GIMP is very intuitive if you play with it. Watching videos help. The desk top could do with more reference points (e.g. the text box reflecting the size of the font...adding text to the right size id taking a lot of fiddling for me at the moment)

I'm sure you folks are all experts at GIMP but I've found it to be a
very hard to learn how to use.  But how many hundreds of hours did it
take you to learn how to use it?
    
 
It depends what you mean by "learn how to use it". GIMP is just a
tool, what you can do with it depends on your creativity and skill as
well.


I'm actually tempted to suggest something like "Gimp - the Zen Way"
or something like that! ;-)  At times, I just play around with the features,
just to see what's possible - and sometimes with surprising results. I came
up with things you probably won't find in any tutorial.

Just my 2 cents,

Claus
