Comment by bdolfwit... its great... wow Comment by project member mirandagraphic, Sep 24, 2010 thanks for the comment Comment by rukhsana...

I am blown away by all the art above...I have only recently downloaded GIMP, and a few extra plug-in's..But i seriously didnt realise that Gimp along with GPS, would be capable of acheiving art/pieces like this.. Comment by project member mirandagraphic, Oct 3, 2010 Hi Miss Pinky, thanks a lot for the comments and encouragement. i hope you enjoy GPS as much as i enjoyed doing it.let me know how goes your experimentation and dont be afraid to show what you do.

Comment by yugal20k... Good one Comment by bitbyte0... OMG! Comment by jjtech... Excellent! G'MIC. G'MIC - GREYC's Magic for Image Computing: A Full-Featured Open-Source Framework for Image Processing. G'MIC is focused on the design of possibly complex pipelines for converting, manipulating, filtering and visualizing generic 1d/2d/3d multi-spectral image datasets. This includes of course color images, but also more complex data as image sequences or 3d(+t) volumetric float-valued datasets. To do so, G'MIC defines a lightweight but powerful script language (the G'MIC language) dedicated to the design of image processing operators and pipelines. G'MIC is an open framework: the default language can be extended with custom G'MIC-written commands, defining thus new available image filters or effects. By the way, G'MIC already contains a substantial set of pre-defined image processing algorithms and pipelines (more than 1000).

G'MIC is natively multi-threaded. G'MIC has been designed with portability in mind and runs on different platforms (Windows, Unix, MacOSX). Other interesting technical aspects of G'MIC are: G'MIC Online. Colors. Toolbox. Layers. Basic Color Curves.

Color has this amazing ability to evoke emotional responses from us. From the warm glow of a sunny summer afternoon to a cool refreshing early evening in fall. We associate colors with certain moods, places, feelings, and memories (consciously or not). Volumes have been written on color and I am in no ways even remotely qualified to speak on it.

So I won’t. Instead, we are going to take a look at the use of the Curves tool in GIMP. Even though GIMP is used to demonstrate these ideas, the principles are generic to just about any RGB curve adjustments. Your Pixels and You First there’s something you need to consider if you haven’t before, and that’s what goes into representing a colored pixel on your screen. Remember, each pixel is represented by a combination of 3 colors: Red, Green, and Blue. Getting Around in GIMP - Luminosity Masks. There was a recent thread on the GIMP users forum at Flickr on how to generate luminosity masks (and use them I suppose). I figured I would chime in a bit here with how I generate and use them in my own workflow. There is an older and interesting discussion about Luminosity Masks by Tony Kuyper that was referenced in that thread, and this is a translation of sorts for GIMP users that want to accomplish the same thing.

The original tutorial by Tony is here: Tony Kuyper's Luminosity Masks Tutorial The basic premise of luminosity masks is to allow you to modify elements of a layer masked to a specific region of luminosity (or value). If you are new to layer masks (or need to brush up), I recommend you head to Getting Around in GIMP - Layer Masks to brush up first, then come back. What we'd like to accomplish is to produce masks for our image that target a specific tonal range (lights, mids, or darks).

Lights Mask Colors → Desaturate and check the box for Luminosity. Edit → Copy. Edit → Paste. Getting Around in GIMP - Layer Masks. An occasional question comes up concerning the use of Layer Masks for really controlling your edits to an image, and I thought I would approach the basics in this post. This is really a primer before moving into a much cooler topic - Luminosity Masks for controlling tonal ranges in a different way. (The Luminosity Masks tutorial is finished and can be found here!) On a side note, this is also a method many people use for selective coloring an image.

They will generate a desaturated version of their image, then lay a color version over it with a layer mask. You could then use the layer mask to only allow the color version to show where you painted it. First up is an understanding of how masks work in the first place. Fundamentally, layer masks allow you to block out parts of the current layer that you want to show through. The power of layer masks is that the transparency of your layer can be controlled by any shade of gray. A quick example should illustrate things nicely here: Layer Masks.

Intention Layer masks are a fundamental tool in image manipulations. They allow you to selectively modify the opacity (transparency) of the layer they belong to. This differs from the use of the layer Opacity slider as a mask has the ability to selectively modify the opacity of different areas across a single layer. This modification of a layer’s transparency through a mask is non-destructive to the layer itself. This flexibility to define the opacity of different areas of a layer is the basis for more interesting image manipulation techniques such as selective coloring and luminosity masking. Adding a Mask to a Layer Layer masks need to be added to a layer before they can be used.

For this example I will use a simple image with only two layers, as shown above. You can also add a layer mask through the menus: Modifying a Layers Transparency with the Mask.

Text and images Copyright (C) 2002 Jakub Steiner and may not be used without permission of the author. Intention GAP is an advanced tool to be able to create animations, this guide should give you some sort of view of how GAP works and what you can do with it. For a good tutorial of how to make an animation with GAP then take a look at the “Advanced Animation” tutorial. Main Interface Source Image/Layer specifies, which layer you want to animate on top of the current image. The stepmode is there to define how you want to animate the multilayered image you specified in the source image drop down.

Mode defines what mode should be GIMP using for the layer in the final layer stack. In the modifier section you specify placement, dimension and opacity values for the current key. At the bootom of the dialog you’ll find some inportant sliders. Stepmode Stepmode defines how you want the source multi-layer image to be animated withing the final animation render.

Learn GIMP: From Greenhorn to Guru in 19 Lessons. Fmgbain GIMP is a very popular graphic program, and though not as popular as Photoshop, there are a good many designers who use it as their first choice. While it has some universal features shared by many other graphic programs, as we discussed in the Linux Design Tools: High-end Design on a Low-end Budget? Article, it comes with many differences as well. One of the most notable differences between GIMP and Photoshop is the variations in their GUIs. These differences go beyond pure cosmetics. That’s why I’ve compiled this list: to get you over that ‘frustration hump’ and into making cool stuff sooner. While you can’t expect every Photoshop operation to have a GIMP equivalent, almost all the common operations do. There is certainly no shortage of GIMP tutorials, and even some of the less up-to-date tutorials often still offer value. The article is divided into sections — from rawest newbie through to more advanced users.
