Gimp tutorials

I've seen very beautiful images made with the Gimp. I want to try it, but everything seems very complicated.. layers, channels.. Do you know web sites that have tutorials for image-making? Can you give me some quick tips for the Gimp?

P.S. I searched gg and found some sites with tutors But I won't deny some useful advices that you might give me

best advices:
1. launch gimp and play around, there's nothing better than this )
2. browse the help for layers and channels, and play around, try it
3. read through the startup tips, really helpful
4. visit some sites (, blabla)

Once you got the idea of layers, try writing some text onto a solid color blackground, and try all the 'efffects' and 'script-fus' on the text to see what happens

Yep, play with it.......I found an incredible feature by doing this......Gimp can take a wallpaper or any flat .jpg or .png and turn it into a Globe and animate it to spin!!
