Blog Tips Video Tutorial: Making a Transparent Image

Happy Monday Everyone!
Today I'm bringing you a little video tutorial to help you with your diy blog crafting.
I have been tinkering with my blog recently, as some of you may have noticed. I changed my background, my banner, the navigation bar, and added new buttons.
The reason for all of this tinkering, besides wanting to make my blog all shiny and pretty, is because I finally started to learn and understand how to use GIMP.
Basically, Gimp is Photoshop's free cousin.
I absolutely love it.
When I first started using GIMP I was so lost.  But after playing around, and getting help from the online community, I have slowly been able to create some cool pictures and effects.  
So today I want to share some of that knowledge with you. 
Without further ado, my very first video tutorial.


Partyin' it up in here:
