20degree Control Ball in Game of FuturePinball Guide

I have to study more the free soft Gimp (Gnu Image Manupulation Program). I use more online free softwares and none online free software. That's how i have made images that was put into the pages of the guides. It's important for me to be honest and legal. The tools i use and have used in the past that i dont have anymore, i do think there are all legal.

Long time ago i have used trial softwares, that i believe that i dont have any more. I have contacted recently Adobe to buy the softwares into Adobe Creative Suit CS2 for Windows, because long time ago i liked this software; and would like to have it for a unlimited time of use and legally. But it seem that it's not available anymore. They have told me that i could use the Adobe CS6 Master and they would give just for me a 30 days trial, rather than just a 15 days trial for other peoples. But i have writen them, that it's important for me to use much more and have a license to use it in my e-mail.

With Gimp i can save and export the image as if it was an Adobe Photoshop images. But because it's been quite some time i have not used Gimp and with the new version. I must watch many video tutorials of Gimp. The thing i must learn that maybe peoples could indicate me some step by step youtube videos is with Gimp....

How to "crop" an image, some peoples would say to simply frame what i want of the image. How to know at what resolution the image is and what size it is. How to export the image into some size and some amount of resolution; so that the images in the guides dont loose too much quality. How to optimise the images for books, guides and for the web. Things about the colors as RGB, or CYMB, or Web Hexadecimal colors. There are so many questions about Gimp.

I think also once i understand much more Gimp and how to manipulate it for the images. I could maybe also create a Milkshape3D guide in french. I still have the e-mail from Mete Ciragan from Milkshape3D that i can do printscreens of the software; to make guides for free or even commercially. But first thing first, i must know more Gimp. At leass my first step by step postings here about knowing how to control the ball in game is fine.

Because my brain is slow, it take my self a lot of time to memorize and to understand things like Gimp and others. Even i get tired and sleepy in front of the screen, because it take my self a lot of energy. The same things happen to me for other things i learn, probably because of the coma i had in the past when a car hitted me when i was crossing a street. It's not that i dont want to help, it's all the energy it take to me. But on the more then 7 billions of peoples on earth, i must not be the only one that is like that. This beside my ways of life, like the hours i work in the week, groceries, pay bills, cleaning and so on. I hope that you understand?

It's hard for me when peoples learn things quick and fast, when me it take time and exaust my self. When peoples understand things easy, when it take a lot of time for me. Id like to be as great and quick and smart as many peoples out there.

Hey 20degree! I've not used GIMP personally as it seemed more complicated that I'd want. I do use Paint.Net and feel it is very easy to learn and use. You can get Paint.NET at their web site: https://www.getpaint.net/ (Paint.NET - Free Software for Digital Photo Editing)

Make sure and not buy Paint.NET from the Microsoft Store since you can download it freely and take printscreen images of their software!

Try it out and feel free to DM (direct message here in the pinballnirvana site) if you have questions on using that software!

Thank's for your help. I now have some Adobe Softwares that is buyed from Ebay. I have asked a friend to buy it for me, so i can use it for my guides. It is the Adobe Creative Suite 2, more commonly known as Adobe Creative Suite CS2 (Creative Suite 2). There is a lot of discs, because of the many softwares that it have. I can do great images with it to put into the pages of the guides.

One thing for sure it's always important for me to give my many thank's to the peoples that have helped me trough time. Some peoples still help me to do great things and have great things. Who knows maybe i'll die of the covid, but i take all my precautions; so it's really is important for me to let peoples know my appreciations for everythings. Because without all of your good help and good intentions, i could not do the great things that i do. Many thank's!

You can put it back if you want to the section "Tutorials & Guides". Since the free pdf guide about controling the ball is finished. I have also put the same guide link on the website of Gopinball, into the section (Tutorials & How To); then the sub section "Beginners Guide by 20degree". Just in case if there is people that find it by there also.

Thank's for your time and help. A+

I'm glad to help peoples. It have taken me time, because of my ways of life; this beside i had asked a friend of mine to buy for me the Adobe Creative Suite 2. Commonly known as Adobe CS2. It's important for me to have and use free or paid legal softwares. I have tryed to understand Gimp, but the online tutorials, even the video tutorials; i found it not clear enough as my step by step guides.

I can even create free pdf guides about some Adobe softwares. This because long time ago, i have done a live chat support on Adobe website; then asked to have a copy of the conversation. Into the conversation i asked if yes or no i can do printscreens to explain some Adobe softwares. The support person had told me: yes that i can.

Still the thank's goes more to the peoples that surround me, that helped me into life; so i can do and have many things. This help me for many good and great things that i can do and can have. Like helping other peoples; with my free pdf guides. I think that my guides help peoples to do great and good things. The many peoples comments also indicate me that my guides are of great and good use. Once again, many thank's.
