Default GIMP help

hey, do any of you guys use GIMP for your illustrating software? I have an issue because I am retarded and basically computer illiterate.



I am trying to make a flow-chart type diagram of a laboratory procedure, but I am having issues with
a) making arrows/linkages between the steps
b) making text boxes with a visible border


any help is appreciated and met with scorn and derision. err, I mean rep.

This, or there are various websites with decent flow chart java app's. Have a look at:
http://flowchart.com/
http://www.gliffy.com/
http://www.makeuseof.com/dir/lucidch...charts-online/

That should be enough to get you drawing some professional flow-charts. :)

You're welcome.

I use Inkscape for diagrams and layouts I need to create from scratch to be used in publications, because it's free and can output graphics in high resolutions required for most journals.

I needed to make some flow charts for some work at College. Just Googled "online flow chart maker" & found quite a few different options.

Good luck with that, I'm sure you'll do fine, and in record time! Bring food and drinks for everyone.

I found Inkscape easy to make diagrams of my sampling plots and flow charts of data collection and analysis. It can do some crazy illustrator stuff, but that looked complicated.

I use GIMP quite frequently for my photo editing needs. I recommend you learn to use it, since it's easy and comes in handy more often than not. Here you are an online manual.
