A Lostie's Tutorial - Comic Panels and Layouts by lostie815 A Lostie's Tutorial - Comic Panels and Layouts by lostie815
Some people have asked how I make comic panels, so here it is. I think it's pretty straight forward, but comment if you have any questions. (This is my first tutorial) Hope it helps! :aww:

This is in Gimp, but it shouldn’t be too difficult from Photoshop or other programs. (In Ps, to stroke the selection you go to Edit>Stroke, you’ll probably have to set the line width to 10px or so, depending on how big your comic page is.)

For overlapping panels – make the under panels first, then select the ones that will go on top. Once selected, Ctrl-x to cut what’s in the selection and then stroke the selection.

I would, but I can't until I buy a new computer. This one isn't powerful enough to handle video. ^^;

Is this in Cs5?
In cs6, when you go to Edit, there is no stroke selection, and there is just a stroke.
When you click stroke, nothing happens.
Do you know how I can fix this?
Thanks in advance! :D
