No no, don’t worry! This is not another Gimp-Photoshop contest replay! It’s just a pragmatic choice I made (please read: lack of sufficient resources).
And anyway, I’m convinced that whatever program you intend to use, the results are (almost) always up to you and yourself. Don’t agree? Check out this guy (EclecticAsylumArt) using MS Paint for a moment. Not too bad, I’d say. Some say this video is fake, but even as a fake, it looks real enough to me.
Don’t expect any of those miracles from me by the way. Slowly and on an incremental track, I’ll move forward, while exploring the forces of my new and free digital darkroom. I needed to add some kind of border to my pictures, so I did. I even wrote (typed) it down, not to forget how it works in the future. And guess what, here it is, not a masterpiece, but nevertheless proudly presented.
