Ever since I downloaded a bunch of icon textures from colorfilter, I have been going icon crazy. This despite not really knowing how GIMP works. I'm sure I'm wasting vast amounts of time on things that can really be done by the click of a mouse, but I'm rather enjoying experimenting with the opacity of the textures and then erasing bits of them so you can see the image on top of which I've just plonked it down. I'm really, really bad at selecting bits of images and putting them on backgrounds, as this rather crappy attempt to upgrade an existing icon proves:

Anyone got any hints on cutting and pasting bits of images? I don't think I've really got the hang of it yet....

Someone really should do some tutorials on how to make good icons in GIMP. Even if it has to be us. Or me, once I figure out how myself.

Icons zaz!
