    This entire program has me whipped! I can't figure it out.
    Please direct me to a tutorial that starts from the most basic concepts and leads me to where I can understand this!!!

    Basically, do tutorials... I started that way and it really helped me out a lot in understanding the concepts of the single filters. The site Kajida recommended is quite good, you could also check out "GimpKnowHow" on youtube or similar video tutorials.
    After finishing ~20 of those, you should have a basic idea of most filters and tools. Then you can try to make your first own picture from scratch or your first photomanipulation.

    Übung macht den Meister, an old German saying ;D
