Creating and Using Paths
Posted 15 October 2005 - 06:08 AM
It's about half way down the page where he described the technique to me.
If you can't get it, let me know and I'll e-mail you the pattern and/or xcf file.

I have been now fighitng GIMP from 8am... now it's 4pm.. I was just giving up.. thought I don't have anymore ideas what to do.. then I realize I haven't learned to cut out renders so I visit your other tutorial.. then I see that I need to know paths.. I thought I knew but when I came here I was amazed ! very nice work ! You gave me hope and inspiration and a new skill once again ! :l:
I setted myself a long and hard assigment and the time limit is 3 weeks I was giving up on it but this helped alot !
I will be posting my results later in the week, my test week just passed and finished all but 3 courses in school so I now have time to learn about gimp !
Anyway thank you very much for this ! It help's a lot !
I'm off to try somethings with this and then I will be reading your render thing tutorial, because it's almost impossible to do anything without knowing that skill !
Thanks for this !
Photoshop your going down !
I can wait to start learning on GAP and on your morphing tutorial ! ^^
Keep making the world a better place with tutorials like this ! ^^ :w:

I have however managed to follow anyway and well chuffed with this tut, now I know paths.
I am stuck however on the text part of the tut. I am using Sans Bold size 80 and have tried with guidlines and without but when I select the path tool and try to activate the path all I get is a new anchor and when I look in the paths dialog I have a new path called unnamed?
What have I done wrong?
Oh I just turned off ZoneAlarm Pro and they have all appeared! I must try to figure out what it is that it is doing to stop them showing??

What I have is a background layer and a text layer. I have the text layer active and it is displayed on the image window with yellow ants in a rectangle. After I alpha to selection, to path, path tool and then hover mouse over the path the cursor remains as ready to place new anchor. Nowhere on the path does it change to a hand?
Any ideas anybody?
SORTED! I had not turned on the eye on the path dialog! :w:

I created the background from this tut with just a few tweaks to the settings suggested:
The planet I created from this tut and used a mars image I found on a web search for the texture:
By using your tutorial to create this image I know fully understand the concepts of layers and the power they bring to create great images.
I am well chuffed and can't wait to start my next image
