This marks the first time using Inkscape that I wasn’t tempted to throw my computer through the window, so that is definite progress. I found GIMP really easy to follow and easy to use especially since I have never used anything with layers before. Inkscape I followed along well, but I don’t know if I would be able to go back and do what I did without the tutorial just yet. Both times I watched the videos straight through first and then went back and re-watched them as I followed along. I agree with Andrew’s post that Inkscape seems to have more steps to accomplish things, whereas I felt GIMP was much more straightforward. In the future, I would probably go to GIMP before Inkscape if possible. I definitely feel that GIMP is a more user-friendly and logical program, for me at least. I say that now, but when I have to do something in GIMP without a tutorial I will probably be totally lost again. Like learning anything, it takes practice.
