GIMP Tut: Photomanipulations by Xadrea GIMP Tut: Photomanipulations by Xadrea
:la: finally got it done ^ ^ this is a tut on how to make photomanipulations in the GIMP. This tut is a simple one, I only used two stock images for this photomanipulation and very few filters. Textures, more blending, more light manipulation, and other stuff'll be covered in the next one =D
Also,

ALWAYS FOLLOW THE STOCK RULES BY THE STOCKERS

at the time that i made this tutorial, i did not have a tablet :D i have one now and it's a crappy little one i got from amazon for under 30$ :lol: i can't really recommend one persay, but i've heard that wacom bamboo tablets are well worth the money :)

thanks :) yes i looked at bamboo, but since I wrote that comment I have been overwhelmed by people encouraging me to get intuos instead. they say that way I wont have to upgrade later (if i ever get to that point :D ) but I think somewhere down the road ill want to get one of those cheap 30$ ones to travel with, (cuz I don't think I'll want to travel with something that cost me 400$!! D: ) so maybe that all will work itself out eventually :)

I usually check this tutorial when it comes to erasing a background while trying to keep hairs intact. It's based on a hipass filter, i.e. sharpens differences and transitions. There might be a hipass filter available as a plugin now so it's worth giving it a try IMHO.

Xadrea Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2010  Professional Traditional Artist
yup I know about those =D this particular tutorial is for the very basic beginners, so if the bg the model photo is in is solid color (which is why i suggested that), individual hairs will typically not be removed in the erasing process ^ ^ the photo i used was not against a uniform bg so i did a little more tweaking than just to using the fuzzy select and select by color =D

Kudos on the tutorial!! You explained the steps very well. I know you were limited on the space for the information, but the 9 - 10 pix type is very hard to read. I got out a magnifying glass and accidentally burned a llama icon. Lololol.
Really good job!

:XD: poor little llama...
sorry about the font, its really hard to fit everything in there even with the huge file size lol, i think if u download it you should be able to read everything in a more zoomed in way ^ ^, i think im going to have to make the height of these things bigger :XD:
