I’ve recently been playing with GIMP, the shareware (free) photo editing software that legally does what Photoshop does. I’ve also been thinking about writing some tutorials (which is one of the reasons I’m doing this 15 posts in 15 days thing – no sleep thing). Note there are some really good tutorials here. But here is what I did just messing around with it (note click on the photos to see them at nearly full size)….
- I started with kind of a cool picture (upper left corner is the original)
- I darkened all the features in the pirouette (silhouette – inside joke) (upper right)
- I changed the color of the sky (Lower left)
- I added a gradient boarder that was semi translucent (Lower Right and top of post)
Note – I just previewed it and at this resolution, it’s probably too small to notice – but if body glove wants to use this for a comerical and pay me lots of money, I’ll take it.
