Hello everyone! A complete and utter noob in the mapmaking world needs help!

That person being me.

I am really interested in using GIMP, as I have seen some really beautiful maps drawn with them. However, I have absolutely no experience in using any sort of program like it, be it photoshop or any other. Plus im technologically impaired.

Is there some sort of guide for absolute dummies like me to learn how to use this program? Or any bits of helpful advice?

Thanks in advance!
