Posts I've Made
29 November 2012 - 12:33 AMHello
I finally got through the Capchta window and managed to register.
I'm new to Gimp and actually installed it in the hope of making a banner for a website where the text appears and disappears with some of the possible effects often seen in banners (letters drop in and out from top, top left etc. fade in and out, sparkle in and out, assemble themselves or explode out etc. etc. etc.
Is this possible in Gimp and where would it be please?
And I haven't been able to find a video lesson on this either on YouTube. Does anyone know where there might be one?
Thanks in advance
AlcaMagic has recommended trying Adobe Edge Animate (I'm going to check it out too since it is free at this time) as well as providing you with a nice little tutorial about basic animation with Gimp. I don't know anything about Edge Animate, so I cannot comment on it. If you are interested in learning to create animations in Gimp, I have some experience with that.
As someone who has been using Gimp off and on for some time, including using it for making animations, may I recommend that you first work towards familiarizing yourself with Gimp, then doing simple animations just with Gimp, and then after that work on understanding GAP (Gimp Animation Package). That way you will be able to make custom animations only limited by your imagination.
There are some sticky/pinned topics at the beginning of the GIMP Tutorials and Tips section that may help you to begin learning about Gimp and GAP. There is a link in the GIMP Plugins, Filters, and Scripts section for installing the latest version of GAP (for users of Windows), which I am told does work along with the 2.8.x versions of Gimp.
If you are looking to make some quick animations requiring little effort, you can find some Gimp animation related scripts over at http://registry.gimp.org. Just do a search there for keywords like animation, animate, motion, etc. Also, because some people place Gimp scripts on their own sites, you might do an online search for keywords like "Gimp animation script" or similar. You can use the Gimp documentation site to learn how to install scripts in Gimp. Chapter 13 is about Gimp scripting including how to install them.
Most people that I am aware of tend to use Gimp more for image manipulation or artistic works. Things that deal with creating a single image. There are some very good general animation tutorials here in gimptalk in the Tutorial sections. But because most people tend to use Gimp for single image work, you may not find specific tutorials on creating this or that animation effect. It does not mean it cannot be done with Gimp, just that you have to figure it out on your own, and that requires taking time to learn and become very familiar with Gimp as well as animation and GAP.
10 October 2012 - 03:12 AMI remembered, it was in GAP plugin. But now I tried to download it for Gimp 2.8 and finded only this side with GAP for 2.6 http://photocomix-re...ndows-135464357
Can I use it with 2.8? I don´t want to get to errors dialogs or reinstalig entire Gimp....
What do I do?
There is a script for doing various animations that works with Gimp 2.8 versions. AnimStack is the name of the script. For a script, it is quite versatile. It is not meant to replace GAP, but until GAP is updated to work with the latest 2.8 version of Gimp, hopefully this can help you some.
29 July 2012 - 05:50 PMHi Everyone,
I'm new to gimp and this forum.......please can someone help?
I have two separate images and I want to make a diptych on a white background like this image here that I found in google images
Oh I'm using a Mac OS X Lion, was hoping to find a tutorial or even better a vid to show me,
many thanks in advance
Unfortunately, I do not have any specific tutorials to recommend since I have not tried that form of photo art.
I did some searching about diptych photography and found this flickr group dedicated to that art form:
They provide a link to a method some photo artists use to create diptych's:
While the link describes how to do it in Photoshop, if you are familiar with Gimp, translating the tutorial to use with Gimp is easy. If you are a complete beginner with Gimp, you may have difficulty converting between Photoshop and Gimp.
Here is a link to a Flickr group discussing some methods for creating diptych's using Gimp:
Finally, if you do an online search for the terms "gimp diptych tutorial", using your favorite search engine, you will probably find a number of tutorials or sites with information on using Gimp to make diptych's.
Once you get started, if you have any specific questions about particular steps of a tutorial, feel free to ask either at the site where the tutorial is, or here. Someone here hopefully will be able to guide you through any specific questions you might have about a Gimp tutorial.
Hope this helps you some.
31 May 2012 - 07:26 AMHi agent999:
Gimp is slowly transitioning to depend more and more on GEGL(General Graphics Library). In fact, if you turn on it's use in Gimp, you will get that nice smooth color gradation that you get with PhotoPaint. The way that you do it is from your image window select:
Colors | Use GEGL
Then go back and select the Hue-Saturation filter. Set your Hue value to 63. You should now receive a nice smooth gradation of colors.
There is also another way around using Gimp's native Hue-Saturation filter and that involves having the GMIC plug-in. If you are a user of a Windows operating system, there is an installer you can download at the linked site. It will install the plug-in for you. Once the plug-in is installed, you will need to restart Gimp.
Then you can open your image in Gimp and select
Filters | GMIC
The plug-in has a rather large set of applications it can perform. One of the main sections in GMIC is Color. You can expand that section and select the HSV mixer. After adjusting the Hue Brightness value to 63, I received a nice smooth color gradation.
Hope this information and the provided links help you some.
