creating guide lines

Post#1 by gnerd » 20 Oct 2017, 00:41


I have followed many tutorials that use a lot of paths so there are a lot of guides to set up. My question is how do you know where to set the guides? Other than centering H and V guides how do you go about figuring out where to place other guides? Is there a method, a tutorial, is there a guide for guides?

When I use the Guideline in my tutorials, I do it for the purpose of making it easier for others that don't have the skills or the abilities, like some of us have. For myself I'm not new in this, I been working with Gimp for a pretty long time and I have acquired experience with the tools. I do the artwork first for myself without any guidelines, then I place the guidelines on the mark trace by the Nods of the paths I use. It's something that you'll learn with time and practice. I hope I explained right for what you were asking Nancy.
