Doing A Comic Page In GIMP

I took a look at the Photoshop pricetag and think I’ll rather use the money to pay the morgage…or buy a car.

I’m not much for just fooling around in a new application so I decided to try out GIMP while doing a new page of Guillaume’s Rambling Ride all digitally. I created a custom template after consulting the online help.  I did a sketch , added some layers and text, saved and decided it was time to go to sleep.

The next day GIMP couldn’t read the file. I saved in psd. DO NOT SAVE IN PSD FORMAT. Use GIMPS native format xcf. Photoshop can’t be used to open the psd in, but Illustrator saved me. I’ve lost the layers but it was just the sketch I was after anyway.
