I downloaded GIMP tonight and used it for the first time. My first etched photo is about 1/3 of the way through and so far looks fantastic. Took me about an hour of watching the video on youtube and doing the same thing, then going back and doing a bit more to my liking.
Doing it on draft board. As its etched not cut, should I have removed the backing paper first? (bit late now, but be good to know for next time)
