Well, isn’t everyone?
Let me give you some free tools you can use to make your annual report sparkle, and your e-newsletter shine!
What is Gimp?
A free software program that lets you create all kinds of fun effects. You can download it and use it on any operating system.
Brushes are add-ons to gimp that allow you to draw, instead of a line, a big pattern, a flower, a solar system, a piece of tape, a whole bunch of things!
They will make you look like you own one of those really fancy programs, or have access to a super expensive design firm.
So where do you go for brushes? Click here. Deviantart has a whole community for Gimp Brushes.
Online Tools for MORE nonprofit graphic design fun!
Where else can you go? Try Google chrome, a web browser that has apps inside it that you can run and use on your pictures.
