It's a nice evening on friday. You are relaxing in front of your PC to just shut yourself off a busy week. Suddenly the phone rings. It's someone of your gaming group asking you if you have time to play this night.
Bottom line is, without layers in the original image, you only have what's there to work with - can't get "under" the pixels. Clone tool followed by manual editing is about the best you could do on the individual numbers. For the green circles, you might be able to select and copy each of those locations to a new image, and work with the colors, levels, and other settings to see if you can neutralize the green, and then paste that back in to the original image. I don't know exactly what you'd do, but you can tweak the colors that way (you want to make sure you do that after cutting them from the original and putting them on a new layer or new image, otherwise you mess up the colors on the original image). <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>
Making a forest map using Gimp Open your map bmp file located ?
November 2005 Sometimes finding that perfect desktop background can actually end up taking a lot of time. Making one might be a better approach. In this article, the basics of building nice looking background images from a simple colored one with a pattern to multiple sourced bump mapped ones is discussed. The tool used is the GNU Image Manipulation Program also known as the GIMP . A Basic Colored Plasma Pattern
I know there is already a topic about this by allyboo, but when I started, I used Ally's guide, and found that it lacked some vital information, so I thought I would have a go at one myself - I will post it below All feedback is welcomed How to Create a Map using Gimp Version The version that I am using is v2.6 , but if you are using a different version, then that is fine as well, it will just look slightly different (to download the latest version, go to Download Gimp ) Twstats Before you can start making maps on Gimp, you need to learn how to use Twstats first. You need to get to the site www.twstats.com , and then from the homepage, select the world that you are on e.g. World 25. Next you want to go to the Maps Tool (top right of the page) This is how your page should look...
Digital photography truly is amazing. Today, a photograph can be manipulated until it doesn't resemble the original photograph at all, and still look remarkably authentic. How do they do that? Well, certainly there are different levels of expertise in digial image manipulation, but The Gimp offers a simple little tool that makes that manipulation easier than most people think. It's called the Clone Tool. For this week's tutorial, we'll be going through the steps to take what some would see as being a defect of an otherwise great photograph.
In this post I’ll show how to create a fantasy illustration in Gimp. We’ll design a (rather sexy) fairy. Before we start: One general info about pasting anything in Gimp. To paste something into new layer, please use the general method (that is – ctrl+c, ctrl+v) – and after that click “new layer” icon to make a new layer from Floating Selection. Ok – so we’ll make the background first.
I learnt use of Bump Map from a tutorial at gug.sunsite.dk. So, here is my try explaining it a bit more so that it becomes easy for all level users to understand the use of Bump-Map plugin, and possibilities. Prerequisites You must be familier with creating new image, adding new layers, deleting layers, naming/renaming a layer, filling solid color and gradient in layers/selections. If you do not know how to perform above mentioned operations then Click here to read beginners tutorial first.
There are two filters that are particularly useful for rendering. These are Emboss and Bump map . The Emboss filter, found in Image:Filters/Distorts , creates the effect that an image is embossed into a thin metal plate. Figure 8.9 illustrates the use of the filter for a very simple case. Figure 8.9 (a) shows an image that was created using a radial gradient, and Figure 8.9 (b) shows the corresponding dialog for the Emboss filter.
Post 1:Introduction First off, let me say that it was Pyrandon’s city map tutorial that inspired me to write up this one, so I will steal his format . I have been working on a variety of techniques to make (what I consider to be) “nice looking” maps using GIMP, and felt they are polished enough now so that anyone can follow along and do the same. I intend to publish this tutorial serially, in the How-To forum at the Cartographer’s Guild web site, and hope to coalesce it into a single pdf for download when complete. Why GIMP?
Hey there, this is my first attempt at a GIMP tutorial so I may be hazy and vague at times, but try to stay with me. This tutorial is intended for people who have a good amount of experience with making sigs, and don't have to follow me word for word to get a good sig. Step 1.
Oct 12 2009 Some days ago, fellow RPG blogger MJ Harnish pointed an awesome map-making tutorial out to me. This tutorial uses Photoshop and the Roleplaying City Map Generator , which I am hosting at my Google Sites page . I haven’t tried creating my own map using this tutorial yet, but from what I’ve seen so far its easy enough to follow if you have some experience with Adobe Photoshop. Please note that you need to register at the forums to be able to access the attached images in the tutorial.
Apr 27 2009 As you probably remember, the One-Page Dungeon Contest hosted by fellow RPG bloggers ChattyDM and Chgowiz in on. Some people have already started sending in their dungeons, others (like me) are still working on their entries.
1 Open a new file: 400×500 px and set the background color to black. 2 Create a new transparent layer, fill it with #bc8b46. 3 Go to Filter / Noise / RGB Noise and use these values as input: Independent RGB Channels: checked RED : 0,20 GREEN : 0 BLUE : 0 ALPHA : 0 4 - Filter / Blur / Gaussian Blur: 10px. The noise-effect should be still very little visible- 5 Now, we’re going to bring some depth into play. Open the channels tab (Dialogs / Channels).
With this website, I’ve tried to give new DM’s out there tools, resources, and tips to run a better D&D game with. One of the things that I’ve never been able to offer before today, simply because I have no skills at it, is a robust mapping tutorial or series. So I reached out to the community at Cartographer’s Guild, probably the best mapping resource on the internet, and immediately I had a volunteer willing to help out newbiedm.com readers with their rpg mapping. Jonathan Roberts, a published cartographer who has done work for Mongoose Publishing, Kobold Quarterly, Open Design, and other publishers, has graciously accepted to provide us with a series on mapping.
