Corriger un contre-jour Avec Gimp il est possible de corriger un contre-jour. Prenons cette image: Il est inutile d'essayer d'ajuster la luminosité: Augmenter la luminosité ne fait que transformer les noirs en gris: Jouer sur le contraste ne suffit pas non plus: Diminuez-le, et les noirs deviennent gris aussi. Bien sûr les augmenter n'arrange rien non plus: La solution est d'utiliser les niveaux: Attrapez le curseur gris comme indiqué, et glissez-le vers la gauche: Et voilà le résultat ! Vous pouvez déplacer plus ou moins le curseur en fonction de l'image. A voir également Dans la même catégorie Communautés d'assistance et de conseils.

Introduction to the “GIMP” for Educators | Harris Educational is Reinventing Science (some terms are defined at the bottom of this article) The “Gimp” stands for GNU Image Manipulation Program. The Gimp is a free image editing program that has quite a bit of power. The Gimp is available for multiple platforms (Windows, UNIX, OS X, and others) and is licensed under the GNU public license including totally open source code. Some of the common tasks that I use the Gimp for include cropping photographs, changing the size/resolution of a photograph, taking the backgrounds out of images, compositing two or more images together, and adding text annotations to images. Educators can make use of the Gimp in three main areas: 1) A free and relatively easy to use tool to edit images that you may use when building presentations, handouts, worksheets, tests, web content, or any other digital or print media. 3) A tool for scientific analysis of digital images taken for scientific purposes. Here are some resources for Educators, or anyone else interested in learning more about the Gimp:

Gimp - Corriger la sous-exposition des photos Quand vous prenez une photo avec votre appareil, celui-ci choisit lui-même l'exposition optimale. Le problème, c'est que pour les scènes fort contrastées, on perd inmanquablement des détails. (Typiquement: une pièce sombre avec une fenêtre montrant le ciel.) Il existe bien des techniques pour palier à ce problème - telle que HDRI (High Dynamic Range Imaging) - mais elles sont lourdes et complexes (multiples prises de vue avec des expositions différentes, combinaison des images obtenues, etc.) Heureusement, il existe un moyen simple de "rattraper" vos prises de vues traditionnelles afin de récupérer un peu de détails des zones sombres. La vidéo suivante va vous montrer comment corriger cela avec The Gimp (Vidéo Flash, 3 Mo) A voir également Dans la même catégorie Communautés d'assistance et de conseils.

Education - GIMP in Schools Découper un objet de l'arrière plan (détourage) Parfois on peut vouloir découper un objet de son arrière-plan, par exemple un visage, un fruit posé sur une table, etc. L'outil habituellement utilisé est le lasso, mais l'opération est délicate. On peut également utiliser des calques, mais dans tous les cas il faut suivre le pourtour du sujet à la main, ce qui est fastidieux. Gimp 2.4 possède un nouvel outil de détourage qui permet - dans beaucoup de cas - de rendre quasi-automatique cette opération. Prenons un exemple: Cliquez sur l'outil d'extraction du premier-plan de Gimp. Tracez grossièrement un trait autour de votre objet: Voici votre objet grossièrement détouré: Maintenant, dessinez à l'intérieur de votre objet. L'objet a été détouré, mais vous pouvez remarquer qu'il manque de petites zones. Il vous suffit de peindre sur ces zone, et elles seront ajoutées à l'objet. Maintenant que l'objet semble bien détouré, pressez la touche ENTREE: Et voilà ! 3 astuces simples pour augmenter facilement la vitesse de son ordinateur ! Voyage Privé

GIMP FAQs This FAQ is still a work in progress. Some sections are very outdated, other sections should probably be removed, and some new questions and answers should be added. Please contact us if you can improve it. General Information What is this GIMP? The “GNU Image Manipulation Program” (originally the General Image Manipulation Program) sired by Spencer Kimball & Peter Mattis. In their own words, “GIMP is our answer to the current lack of free (or at least reasonably priced) image manipulation software for GNU/Linux and UNIX in general.” It is a raster editor, which means that it performs operations directly on the pixels that make up the image, and not a vector editor. Where do I get it? Most (if not all) GNU/Linux distributions will support GIMP through their package management systems and may even come with GIMP preinstalled. Why and when was GIMP changed from “general image manipulation program” to “GNU image manipulation program”? GIMP is a stupid name. Is GIMP a GNOME application? Yes. Yes.

GIMP resources to take you from newbie to power user | Worldlabel Blog-Mozilla Firefox A couple of weeks ago we looked at the best Web-based resources for Inkscape users — documentation and tutorials, sites and forums to follow, plus how to find brushes, palettes, scripts and extensions. It only seems fair to do the same thing for the non-vector-artists out there as well. GIMP is every bit as powerful and multi-faceted as Inkscape, of course, and getting the most out of it involves many of the same questions. Informational resources Documentation and manuals The official GIMP documentation is found at the GIMP web site, and its online manual is certainly the place to start. Moving on from there, there have been plenty of quality GIMP books written over the years, most of which are cataloged on the GIMP site under gimp.org/books. Gimp Books (click on image for full view) Tutorials GIMP tutorials, you’ll be happy to learn, are not in short supply. There are also several good GIMP-only tutorial sites.
