thanks for the advice. it took so long to make the background glare things for some reason. i just had to merge all the orb layers to move it. im going to try to finish the "mac style wallpaper" tomorrow cuz im done today
I'm going through it now. One suggestion I'd like to make is, in the introduction to the tutorial, you state the version of GIMP you're using and on what operating system platform. There are differences in how to locate tools as well as the "look and feel" of GIMP depending on those two variables. Just a thought.
