What Students Say About the Course

“I’m so glad I found this! I have been using GIMP for several years (a couple of decades actually) and have been looking for a comprehensive GIMP course like this forever. This course has finally given me exactly what I’ve been looking for. Michael’s course and teaching method are absolutely impressive!”

-Reg E.

“Very thorough explanations of numerous GIMP features. As a long-time Photoshop user, I wanted to learn more about how to use GIMP effectively, and this course has been very good.”

-Jud D.

“When I started this course I had some basic knowledge of GIMP. However I had many gaps and/or insecurities when applying my knowledge. So I wanted to become a better user. By the way you already noticed English is not my native language. But Michael’s English is easy to understand and with the the help of subtitles I understood most everything[…] After having concluded the course I can say: – I am really a better user – I learned a lot[.] This course is worth every penny. Highly recommended!”

-Hans-Peter L.

“An Outstanding course on Gimp that will help any user develop a solid understanding of all the tools and how to apply them.”

My goal for this course is to teach you the proper and professional way to edit your photos, plus how to create amazing graphic design projects or compositions. I don’t take shortcuts in my methods – I only recommend the best methods based on my 10 years of experience using GIMP and the recommendations that come straight from the creators of the GIMP photo editor.
