Ian Rutter​

“This is a humongous course. Be prepared to put the time in and more time.

The tutor is great with a great steady voice. Not boring and not too fast. He really knows his stuff. You only have to look at his other courses and the number of students. A testimony to his teaching ability.

Why I chose this course is I am on an Indie Game Journey. I’m using Blender 3D and Unity and I felt like I needed an image editing program. GIMP is it.

I fully recommend this course if you want to use a serious piece of software, which is in every way an excellent alternative to PS, especially if you don’t want to pay Adobes monthly fees.

I love GIMP, and like everything needs time to learn. Don’t think about this course, just do it. It’s that good.”
