GIMPin' Fool!  
So, I'm not sure what started it. Maybe it was Olivia talking about playing around on GIMP, and then Filo taught me how to do more than one thing on there, so, I just sat down and started playing around on GIMP. Now I have all these icons and nothing to do with them. So, I am posting the fruits of my entire weekend here for all of you to enjoy. 






So now I know how to do like...5 things on GIMP. Go me!
Current Mood: happyhappy
Current Music: "Fernando"--ABBA

Some of these are so cute! I'm totally impressed. I've been thinking of updating my GG ones in time for the new season - I use them so much that I got tired of a few. We'll see. But, I think I'll definitely take the one with the troubadour and maybe a few more. That's okay, right?

Also, I like your new layout. It's the green - it's so nice and spring-ish.

ETA: For instance, using this icon makes me realise it won't make sense if I use it this year. I need a S9 one!

Thanks! I was a little bored this weekend, can you tell? Feel free to take away! I should've put that on the post, huh? Crap, you just made me realize that I took my S8 icon off since it would say S8 and not S9. Now I have to find/make a new one and then delete one of my old ones so it will fit. Ugh, I can never decide on which ones I should get rid of.

I like the new layout too. Hee, appropriate time of the year to pick springy colors, huh?

Go you! Hooray for Pop! These are great. I really like that you used the Troubador and love the coffee beans. I'll be swiping these when i get home, because you know what an icon houd I am. *pets Pop*

These are beautiful. I love the one of Lorelai and Rory laughing. That is my favorite.
My second favorite is the one with the coffee beans and Lorelai's goofy smile. (you know she is about to beg for coffee!)
You guys are so talented with the graphics. I am so jealous!

Thanks! I'm glad you like the laughing one. It's one of the first ones I ever made.

If you ever want to learn how to make the icons, GIMP is free online and Filo has a little tutorial that she made up. You should ask her for it one of these days.

Wow, I love these! Where'd you get the background thingamajiggers? These are amazing!

Thanks! Half of my backgrounds were found by googling floral wallpaper and the other half was founf using my mom's subscription on clipart.com. I'm obsessed with these backgrounds now.

wow. your cut outs are really good. PS sucks when it comes to cutouts.

lovely my dear. OMG! YOUR LISTENING TO ABBA? Awesome. You are my new fav person. And, no. I don't just like them because the stupid movie mamma mia. I didn't even enjoy it.
robinpoppins: GG: Lorelai prettyrobinpoppins on July 28th, 2008 09:26 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I have a hard time doing cuts on Photoshop too. I think PS isn't very user friendly either, so GIMP is good for playing around with. Plus, my PS is wonky since it's anolder version that's not compatible with Vista.

I likw ABBA too. Eh, as far as Mamma Mia goes, I liked the music (with the exception of Mr. Brosnen) but the stroy was terrible. It probably works much better on Broadway than it does on film.
