GIMP 2.10 Selection Area Basics In-Depth Tutorial

In this tutorial, I provide an in-depth introduction to selection areas – an important feature and concept found within GIMP. From the definition of what a selection area is, to the various ways to draw a selection area and determine its boundaries, I cover all of the essential basics to help you understand what makes selection areas so great in GIMP.

I use the latest version – GIMP 2.10.8 – of this free software for this beginner’s tutorial.
