Hello cartographers, would you care to help out a GIMP noob?
Hello! I got on this site because I want to make some beautiful maps for my DnD campaign, and this seemed like a great place to start. GIMP seemed like a highly recommended program, so i downloaded it, read a few tutorials, and got to work! But i've already run into what i'm sure is a very noobish problem. I tried to make an animated brush for mountains, trees, hills, ect. by making 8-9 samples of the objects with transparent layers, but when I try to save them into my brushes by going to the top left corner, using save as, and then making the file a .gif, but I can't get it to show up in my brush dialogue! In fact, I don't even seem to have a brush folder to save it to! Just pictures, documents, desktop, ect. Sorry if this belongs in a different place, but please, help this GIMP noob out!
