Hey guys.

Currently im in the middle of create a new website, and have created the layout and are now looking for more of the graphical aspect of the website.

Unfurtiantly i'am not a big graphical expert. And my skills goes to basic basic Gimp.
So i am trying to look for someone who can help me manipulate some picturs, colors, text and such. So i get them the way i want them.

As far as i can tell, i dont think it's very time consuming if you got some Gimp / other drawing program skills. Since what i want isint very complicated.

The website is not a commercial site, so unfurtiantly their is no $ in it for you.
But prehaps we can figure something out, if you need help with something i know about.

But if your intersted in helping me out a little bit here and their it would be great.
Please dont hesitate to leave me a reply or a PM.

If their is anything you feel like, their is something that is unanswered. Then please tell me.

Thanks on advance.
Kind regards.

Kind regards.80% of the Gimp users are on Windows... You'll have more audience for such a request on Gimp-related forums: gimptalk, gimpchat, gimpforums. The latter has a "freelance" section which is also used for calls for free help.

So if Ubuntu users dont use gimp (if 80% of them are on windows) then what does ubuntu users use, as a picture editing program.

Just to give en example of what im hoping someone can help me with, is for example as seen on the two pictures ive uploaded.

The picture got the text Menu, but i dont have the big editing skills and cant edit the text myself. Since i would need to delete the area with the text and then re-paint the missing part of the picture. So i hope someone can help me with this. So i can get some buttons with the text

Solved itActually much easier to redo from scratch. There is a Layer-FX package with a bevel/emboss script that does everything, plus a black to white vertical gradient in overlay mode above the lot. Font is very close to Impact condensed size 20.

80% of the Gimp users are on Windows

That's an interesting statistic. Although I'm not doubting that the majority of Gimp users use Windows (since Linux has only a ~1% share of the desktop), could you provide the source for that statistic?

Here are the stats for the one with the highest ratio of Linux users:

Given the kind of scripts (playing with Paths) these stats are for reasonably advanced users. My other SF projects are around 75-80% Windows downloads.

I use GIMP profesionally on a daily basis and can't say I feel the need to use much in the way of 3rd party scripts... apart from a custom batch converter maybe... so basing your figures on your specialist(?) addons will only tell you that 75% (according to your pie) of your script users are on windows... hmmm... hardly scientific or likely to reflect realworld usage.

Windows users are more likely to steal CS5 than use GIMP imho.

And you can look at other Gimp-related downloads on SF, like GMIC, UFRaw, Panotools... each is meaningless, but put together they show a trend.

I use Gimp, and have never visited any of the Gimp boards. I wouldn't be surprised if most Ubuntu users of Gimp come here for Gimp-related issues.

The Windows users of Gimp who participate on those boards are a self-selected group, looking to do specific things with the program. I don't know if they are a representative sample of all Gimp users.

But as I said, the Gimp user community at large doesn't use Ubuntu, so looking for help here is a bit like looking for the car keys under the street lamp because that's were the light is. It may work, but you are ignoring a lot of potential solutions.

On one board I parcipitate there are roughly at least one third on Linux users. The other one is mostly general questions by beginners, I don't think they are "self-selected" in any way, they end up on that board because Google led them to it.
