    • In the e-book cover chapter I will show you where to find professional and free fonts (fonts that for example Canva uses). NOTE: it is not possible to offer Fonts Bundles that are worth money. Only font vendors like Adobe and Monotype can do this, because fonts are strictly copyrighted! So an offered 'Fonts Bundle' will be just free fonts.

    • In the video course you can download the FREE PDF of the book, that can be viewed on your computer, on tablet and e-reader.

    • I will answer all your questions in the Student Discussion Forum within 24 hours! Join over 22,000 happy students (1,579 ratings: 4.5 out of 5) on the platform!

    • We'll look at how to improve and correct photographs, and how to work with layers. You'll learn how to crop and resize images, and how to save images for web and print.

    • You'll learn how to make professional selections with just a single click! (this is not possible in Photoshop!) using the patented 'U-point technology' delivered by the free Google Nik Collection, a high-end photo editing plug-in suite that professional photographers use. We’ll download and install the software, together with a special plugin that will let you work with the Google Nik Collection from out of GIMP. So thanks to the Google Nik Collection you get access to this unique single click selection method!

    • You will learn the powerful Liquify tool, that is used for facial reconstruction, weightloss, or just for fun, to make someone's eyes or ears really big! You'll learn how to let the program remove objects automatically (in Photoshop called: 'Content Aware healing'), and how to remove objects with the Clone and Heal tool.

    • You'll learn skin retouching with Frequency Separation, exactly as the professionals do!

    • You'll learn how to create professional black and white images, and how to sharpen images. You'll discover creative filters that bring a different look and feel to your image, and you'll learn how to make professional eye-catching book covers!

    • You'll learn dodging and burning techniques, and everything about the powerful blending modes.

    • The book is created for the Windows (7,8,10) user. With some extra steps however, the Linux user can also follow along. The book has been printed in black and white to keep the price as low as possible. In the video course you can download the Full Color PDF of the book.

    Product Description:

    College soccer star Mark Zupan had been out drinking one night and had passed out in the back of his best friend's pickup truck when his friend got in the driver's seat, decided to take the truck for a spin, and accidentally crashed it. Thrown into a canal and stuck in frigid water for fourteen hours, Mark was finally rescued and learned soon after that he'd broken his neck. He'd most likely be a quadriplegic and spend the rest of his life in a wheelchair, doctors told him. At first Mark's only goal was to walk again. When that proved impossible, he fell into the depths of anger and despair, retreating from the world and the people closest to him. But love, friendship, and a new sport, quad rugby (a.k.a. "murderball"), helped Mark create a new existence that's truly exceptional.

    Gimp, the no-holds-barred memoir of a Paralympic athlete and the star of the Academy Award–nominated documentary Murderball, is an inspiring, defiant, and revealing celebration of spirit and will that confounds readers' prejudices by offering proof that a guy in a chair can still do amazing things: have sex with his girlfriend, party with his friends . . . even crowd-surf at Pearl Jam shows.
