Ie. from this:
Also I'm also trying to figure out how to make the LQ or MQ Raws and make them look HQ. Can anyone give me tips on that, and no I can't get Photoshop so I'm only looking for tips from fellow GIMP users. The version I'm using right now is GIMP 2. Thank you in advance!
it's called redrawing, take a look here: http://mangahelpers.com/forum/showthread.php?t=17521
improving the LQ-MQ raw quality is called cleaning, you have to look around for some tutorial, anyway Photoshop is better then gimp for this kind of things
i agree with progste use photoshop its very flexible and there are loads of tutorials for photoshop unlike gimp. gimp has tuts but not extensive as photoshop. you can get photoshop easily
