alright this topic is for helping and showing off things in gimp,
gimp is a image editing program like photoshop
below are helpful items for gimp

You can download gimp here (http://www.gimp.org/)
There is also Gimp Portable (http://portableapps.com/apps/graphics_pictures/gimp_portable)

here's my ustream channel where I'll be helping people with gimp and etc.
http://www.ustream.tv/channel/kmm%27s-gimp-corner

I recommend checking out videos and tutorials
Malgalin (http://www.youtube.com/user/malgalin)
Gimp Talk (http://www.gimptalk.com/forum/gimp-tutorials-and-tips-f8.html-sid=3f091d0b99f60d700ac6ab8221162d6f)
Gimper forums (http://gimper.net/index.php)
Gimp Know How (http://www.youtube.com/user/GimpKnowHow?blend=2&ob=1)


For adding fonts go to DaFont (http://www.dafont.com/)
[spoiler:1phqtwhv]To add fonts: In Windows drag the font file in to: Control Panel > Fonts
On Mac drag the font file in to: Home > Library > Fonts

You will need to quit and restart Gimp, or any other programs, to see the font installed.

(*note* on windows once you get to the font window you may have to go to file > install font etc.)[/spoiler:1phqtwhv]
Find brushes for gimp on Deviant Art (http://browse.deviantart.com/resources/applications/gimpbrushes/?order=9&alltime=yes#order=9&offset=456)

[spoiler:1phqtwhv]To add brushes: click on the picture on deviant art, on the side it'll say download, click that download it to your desktop and unzip it, then go to your gimp file and look round for the folder that says brushes and move your unzipped brushes folder into there.[/spoiler:1phqtwhv]
Other Gimp add-ons

GAP ( gimp animation package) 2.6.0 (http://www.box.net/shared/e9i2rgyn9t)
GAP beginner tutorial (http://www.gimptalk.com/forum/gap-beginner-tutorial-set-t9266s0.html)

(GAP is an add on to gimp that'll make it easier for making things as gif's and animations)

Gimp Paint studio (http://code.google.com/p/gps-gimp-paint-studio/)

(gimp paint studio are set of presets and brushes etc. that'll help people who are good at painting/drawing use gimp for artistic purposes)

(also if you need a program for unzipping files use 7zip (http://www.7zip.com/))

alright so some one pm'd me this question bout gimp


"I am wondering you know if you get a picture off the Internet it usually has a white back round. Well what I am wondering is instead of using an eraser and erasing pixel by pixel is there a tool that would eliminate all the white around the picture?"

what you wanna do is use the magic wand tool (or w/e its called) and take that and click on the white of the picture, and then it will select all that and then click delete and if you want to invert it press ctrl + I this will erase most of the white and background things you don't want



*pm or ask on here any gimp questions*

SuperPaperNess
02-22-2009, 06:22 PM
lol I was wondering how to do that too. :lol:

kmmgreen5
02-22-2009, 06:27 PM
i m gonna get all the tips and things i said on my topic later on and add it to the first post in a big spoiler or w/e for everyone

Kyown
02-22-2009, 06:35 PM
I usually invert the selection then shrink it by 1 pixel to get rid of the extra stuff.

02-22-2009, 06:36 PM
Hmm does anyone know how to install fonts? I tried the same thing you do with brushes but it didn't work

Gwellin

Hmm does anyone know how to install fonts? I tried the same thing you do with brushes but it didn't work
That has nothing to do with Gimp, you must install the font on your system.

In Windows drag the font file in to: Control Panel > Fonts
On Mac drag the font file in to: Home > Library > Fonts

You will need to quit and restart Gimp, or any other programs, to see the font installed.

Ok sorry for the wait SPN here is your gimp user white and black just what you wanted
http://www.postimage.org/aV2Mv10.jpg (http://www.postimage.org/image.php?v=aV2Mv10)

And I thought I would fix up my Zelda gimp user a bit and add a small thing ;)

http://www.postimage.org/Pq2Sc39.jpg (http://www.postimage.org/image.php?v=Pq2Sc39)

Now remember guys if you want a gimp user bar just say so just tell me the two colours you want ;)

SuperPaperNess

Yes i am downloading GIMP :D

8-) excellent

zach2m1
02-26-2009, 12:50 AM
If you looked at my sig you will notice I made the corners round and if your wondering why the gimp user is centred it because of the round edges made the gimp user bar look out of place some of you probably know what I am talking about. (Personally I think it looks better that way)

kmmgreen5
02-26-2009, 08:56 AM
I think so too .... I might try that in my next sig

Brineboy
02-26-2009, 03:19 PM
Well here is my first attempt at makeing something with gimp.

Well here is my first attempt at makeing something with gimp.
http://i41.tinypic.com/2lc8pvt.jpg

looks good brine,next time try making the picture you want on top of the back ground a layer and then go to tools>dockable dialogues> layers and then select that picture and then take the eraser and you can get rid of those little white lines making it look perfect _awesome_

zach2m1
02-26-2009, 10:14 PM
Well I like to constantly be working on something and after I saw the1stpkmnfans sig I wanted to make this :D
http://www.postimage.org/aVjzL_r.jpg (http://www.postimage.org/image.php?v=aVjzL_r)

the1stpkmnfan
02-26-2009, 10:19 PM
That's an amzing sig Zach. Though not to be rude, I think that i'd look even better is Vaati would be in the back centered but transparent. But that's my opinion. Good sig anyway. :D

Mine'll be up Saturday at best.

zach2m1
02-26-2009, 11:13 PM
Well after listening to pkmnfans suggestion I added Vaati to the back. It actually took me a lot longer than I expected. I found a png of the picture but there was still a white outlining so I had to erase square by square. So thanks 1stpkmnfan! _awesome_

the1stpkmnfan
02-26-2009, 11:22 PM
Your welcome. :) It looks amazing, with the Ball Vaati in it. I'm sorry that my suggestion took longer like you said, but you have to admit it came out good. But Im glad you took the idea anyway. Nicely done, zach.

2000s Zelda Art ftw. (Wind Waker > Four Swords > Minish Cap)

zach2m1
02-27-2009, 01:31 AM
Ok I wasnt very satisfied with my last sig so I decided to do it over again. I think the main problem was the back round though well here it is Four Swords sig Version 3!

the1stpkmnfan

Perfect Zach! It's not the gloomy anymore! :) I cant wait to see if our Minish Cap Idea will turn out in the future.

zach2m1
02-27-2009, 10:46 PM
Thanks so much the1stpkmnfan! I'm glad you gave me great suggestions!

Aeronautical
02-27-2009, 10:47 PM
I like your new sig Zach!

zach2m1
02-27-2009, 10:48 PM
Awww thanks Aero ^^ I like your sig too!

kmmgreen5
02-28-2009, 12:13 AM
alright so I forgot to mention there is a portable version of gimp that you can download I m going to add that to the first post _awesome_


*EDIT* alright stupid link restrictions wont let me but download Gimp Portable (http://portableapps.com/apps/graphics_pictures/gimp_portable)

zach2m1
02-28-2009, 12:22 AM
Lol wow I guess that will solve all my problems kmm :lol: Now I can do photo editing anywhere! Once I get my USB drive that is 8-)

the1stpkmnfan
02-28-2009, 12:37 PM
Hey Zach, great news. I went to IGN.com and found the picture with Gustaf from the beginning story. Here it is, so I hope you'll be able to use it as your avatar.

zach2m1
02-28-2009, 12:51 PM
Thanks 1stpkmnfan that looks great! Unfortunately the avatar is to big but once I get home I will edit the dimensions on gimp. But I will use that avatar once I get out my four swords sig out. But if it is ok with you I would like to keep this avatar for a bit :)

the1stpkmnfan
02-28-2009, 01:36 PM
Oh, no prob Zach. and Im glad you like it. Though, I recommend that you should cut off the rest of the black, too on the corners. If that's ok with you. I cant wait to see your fourswords sig. :) Im getting mine up by tomorrow.

And yeah, I like you current avatar. If it were part of a couple of more pictures that it came with, then I think I can make a video again, and make my own little legend. :D
Besides, that avatar you have makes me still think of a possible Wii Zelda game in the WW, 4SA, and MC art...

Also. if you dont mind, I can go and get the other 4 pictures from the story, and rely on you to make something epic. But ill do that later, once I get back to my house.

zach2m1
02-28-2009, 02:31 PM
Ya dont worry I was already thinking of cutting off the black part ;)

Brineboy
02-28-2009, 02:51 PM
Hey can someone maybe help me out in creating a sig or something and walk me through it step by step. I can put it up on my stream so you know what i am doing while helping me. Here is the link to my page.
http://www.ustream.tv/channel/brineboys-game-time

@zach, ok then! Im gonna go find those other pics, just in case, and search for that pic as your avatar and see if it's got other parts it came with. Then, Ill go see if I can start my legend video. :D

kmmgreen5
03-01-2009, 11:07 PM
sounds good

also if you wanna know how to get rid of it just make a blank page and bring up that picture, then go and copy and paste mario to the blank image, then go up top to layers>add new layer and that will make mario a new layer then go to windows>dockable dialogues> layers> and then go and click the eye on the white bg and then click on the mario layer it'll be highlighted k, and go and get the fuzzy select tool and click on the white and then hit delete it will get rid of the white then.... why the picture wont let you do it idk but this is one way you can do it...

the1stpkmnfan
03-01-2009, 11:15 PM
Ok, then, Ill try that out soon. Thanks kmm. Ill let you know how that goes for me.

Brineboy
03-02-2009, 08:24 PM
if photobucket isnt working try going to tinypic its almost the same thing but you dont need an account.

zach2m1
03-02-2009, 08:29 PM
Umm all you need to do is get the Image code from the picture it should look a little something like [IMG] just copy and paste it underneath your other sig

Brineboy
03-02-2009, 08:39 PM

Here is a lovely cover for a Romeo and Juliet project I have to do for school tell me what you think of the title please.

Kilgard
03-10-2009, 06:25 PM
I think I would change "Present time" to "Modern day" I think it just flows together better, but that's just my opinion on the matter.

Brineboy
03-10-2009, 06:30 PM
Thanks kilgard will do. I knew that there was a better way to word it but I just couldnt think of it.

EDIT: here is an updated one

Kilgard
03-10-2009, 07:47 PM
I think it sounds/looks better like that :D but once again I don't have a creative bone in my body.

kmmgreen5
03-10-2009, 09:25 PM
looks good to me brine ... one thing you could do is layer the roses and text and on the bg select a brush and then move the little scale toggle up so it makes the brush bigger and then paint around it and it'll add more background ... filling in more space _awesome_

Brineboy
03-11-2009, 07:44 PM
thanks kmm and kilgard
and does anyone know how to sort of combine a text layer and like a picture below it because i scaned a picture onto my computer and then put a quote above it and depending on which layer i selected when i copy/paste it it only shows the layer i have selected even though when i copy it it shows both. The only reason i am doing this is because i need to center it on the page and i cant do that in gimp(?)

bobo_dude16
03-11-2009, 07:52 PM
go to the layer option and choose anchor layer

03-11-2009, 07:57 PM

oh if you wanna merge a text layer and a image layer together just bring up the layers menu and then right click on the text layer and click merge down and it'll merge down on top of your picture

One of my favourite tutorials on the internet is the following.
http://www.gimptalk.com/forum/vector-yo ... 124s0.html (http://www.gimptalk.com/forum/vector-your-renders%C7%83-a-tutorial-by-curly--t6124s0.html) One place I'd recommend deviating from the tutorial is with the paths tool. The author recommends checking the "polygonal" box, but I would leave it unchecked. If you fiddle around and figure out how to properly use the paths tool, using it curved is infinitely quicker, and even looks better.

It teaches you how to vector, or "vexel". This leads to some bright and bold graphics. The author of that tutorial also tells you how to make your own signature using another tutorial. http://www.gimptalk.com/forum/curly%CA% ... t6373.html (http://www.gimptalk.com/forum/curly%CA%B9s-vector-sig-tutorial%C7%83-t6373.html)

I like these tutorials because they leave room for improvisation, teach you useful skills to use while making other signatures, and result in a really unique and polished effects.

Just curious, but what exactly is gimp? I'm guessing it's similar to photoshop or something like that?

the1stpkmnfan
03-20-2009, 10:07 PM
Yeah, it is. Though, I think some people believe GIMP might be a little most easier to do and more fun.

I havent used it in a couple of days, and I have to remove it from my computer. It was making way too much space.

Luminary
03-21-2009, 02:26 AM
Just curious, but what exactly is gimp? I'm guessing it's similar to photoshop or something like that?
It's a free download, opensource digital imaging program similar to Photoshop.
The main reason it's popular is because Adobe wants two arms, a leg, and your firstborn child in return for the best PS.

I honestly haven't run into anything big that PS can do that Gimp can't. Of course, I only have Elements (came with my tablet), but still. PS comes with some nice pre-installed brushes (like the maple leaf brush, awesome), but it's nothing Gimp can't do if you download the necessary files. Other little things like the tools right in the editing window (Gimp has windows floating everywhere for everything) make PS seem like the more polished option, but it's nothing to spend ~$1000 for. I really haven't come up with anything I'd like to see Gimp do that it can't (that's mainly because I just found out today that Gimp as a foreground to transparent gradient. How did I miss it?), and I use it quite heavily. Software is too expensive to justify, especially for the types of people that use the programs (artists ;P).

alright now i believe its time to re-inspire my gimp-lings _awesome_ lol so i m going to link everyone to the tut. that have helped me start making extremely awesome/artistic sigs

now first be sure to read this and get familiar with using gradient maps

gradient maps (http://gimper.net/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=4615)

and heres the metroid sig tutorial that will show you how to make that image and etc. so you'll be able to get a feel for using C4D's (pretty much the cg vector images i m using in the bg)

Metroid sig tut. (http://gimper.net/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=3370&start=0)


everyone must remember once they've become fairly good it doesnt end there there are always new and better scripts brushes plug ins that you can find and use to make your art and gimp better, don't be afraid to go out and search and since i m reviving this topic i'll try to find some more things to help everyone out


(btw if anyone needs help i'd be glad to)

http://www.box.net/shared/e9i2rgyn9t

time to make some animations and work my way up

well its the gimp animation package it makes it a lot easier for you to make animations and to take and edit videos into animations and etc., @.@ it means we can make all the beautiful gif's we want man in half the time in effort (really i only know some things i haven't messed round with it or watched videos and stuff of it but i will )

zach2m1
06-17-2009, 09:44 PM

kmmgreen5
06-17-2009, 09:46 PM
zach go to that tut i posted (second link) and look the little animations they have you can make those, and see it makes it A LOT easier because with out this we'd have to make everything with frames and renaming them (1000ms) or w/e for every second etc. and it would take forever to make animations but this, takes away most of the effort of making um

06-17-2009, 09:57 PM
Ah ok cool, I was looking there and I saw that you can make pathways for pictures and such. And I got this awesome idea of making like _metroid_ follow around Samus for a sig :P But when the picture or layer is moving is there a way to make it transition above and below a layer? I didn't see anything like that in the tutorial or I just missed it.

yeah i've been using the mac one for a lot of things on the latest version which i forget which on it is and it works fine, tip you can use eraser instead of cutting more the whole thing to make something transparent, it's actually really useful so i just highlight with the wand and then erase what i want to be transparent

right click the pic and then go to layer add alpha channel then try using the fuzzy select and then go to select grow 1 and then delete and see if that works

it's the little stick with the yellow tip, it might say magic wand tool or something

Ok I know this topic is older than hell, but I'm wondering if its possible to make custom Gradients. If so, how do I do it?
