I"n Part 1 of this tutorial series, we covered some of the most
basic elements of photo editing -- cropping and scaling (resizing)
photos along with adjusting the brightness and contrast of photos.
In today's hands-on tutorial, you will learn how to use The GIMP's
powerful layer tools by editing a photograph in our digital
darkroom. If you do not know what layer tools are or you never have
used the GIMP's powerful layer tools, you are about to have your

"You later can apply the basic skills, elements, and principles
that you learn in this tutorial to edit and manipulate photos,
clipart, scanned images and other digital graphics. You also can
use the GIMP to design and create all sorts of stunning computer
graphics and images from scratch..."
