2020 is in the books! And although it was a mostly terrible year, I still thoroughly enjoyed creating many GIMP (and Inkscape) tutorials to highlight some of this free software’s amazing features and helping you all learn how to better use the program.

As per usual, I asked all of you to vote on your favorite tutorial each month throughout 2020. This article showcases the winners of each poll based on your answers. Let’s dive in!
