Project Description

In this GIMP for beginners to intermedicate class project you'll use the 2D cover you created in my previous class to create you 3D book cover.  If you have no 2D book cover, use the file attached to this project.

Save your 3D book cover as a JPEG and upload it to your class project.

Post questions and comment in Community.

Consider giving me a thumbs up if you liked the class.

Thanks,
