So, you have GIMP installed on your computer, you need to make a quick
change to an image for some project, but don't want to learn about
computer graphics right now in order to get the image changed. Totally
understandable. GIMP is a powerful image manipulator with many
options and tools. However, it is quick and somewhat intuitive (after a
time) for the small jobs as well. Hopefully, these quickies will help
you with your quick problem and help you to stay friends with The GIMP
and ready for its more complex tools and methods later, when you have
the time and inspiration.
