GIMP stamp tutorial

Text tutorial:

Step one: Put your image or icon on the canvas and select ONLY THE IMAGE; NOT THE WHITE BACKGROUND. THIS IS CRUCIAL.

Step two: Go to filters>artistic>cubism and set tile size at 1 and tile saturation at 2.5.

Step three: Go to Colors>Threshold and play around with that until it looks “stampy”.

Chrome tutorial (You’ve all seen this before)

Yeah, you’ve all seen this effect before. (I just like getting traffic on my blog, it’s fun 😀 )

Text version:

1. Create a new image.

2. Go to Filters>Render>Solid Noise and make X and Y sizes 6.5 EACH and set Detail to 7. (You can also select a seed if you wish)

3. Go to Filters>Distorts>Waves and set Wavelength:50 Amplitude: 25

4. Then go to Filters>Distorts>iWarp and mess around with the move tool (Watch the video to see what I mean)

5. Then go to waves and use the same settings.

Downtime

Phew! Thought I lost everything on my map… Just server errors, data on whos.amung.us got all screwed up.

Glass rings tutorial

Text tutorial (by request) :

Step one: Select the paint brush tool, set
Jitter: 5.00;
Use Color From Gradient: Blinds;
And in brush dynamics: Random: opacity;

Step two: After this, brush the “canvas” until you have a good pattern of rings. (Each circle will become a ring)

Step three: Then duplicate this layer.

Step four: On the original, go to Filters>Distorts>Emboss, and put the settings:
Azimuth: 330.88
Elevation: 50.29
Depth: 72

Step five: On the copy, which is the random opacity circles, set the layer mode to “hard light”.

And now you’re done!!!

Step six (optionally): On the duplicate layer, go to Colors>Colorize and toy around with that to color your rings.

Awesomeness art.
