Copyright? I don't know as there is any, it's only a holiday snap that I perloined...lol...Use it if you like barbara, with mine and my brothers blessing. (His name is David Plummer, if you want to know, and I think he'll be dead chuffed to see it "in lights" so if you do use it give me the URL to it.)....regards John.

Very nice photo.

I tried the sequence Dan used for his rendering, then added IPM layer.

Barbara,
Your GIMP works are incredible. Would you know if a WinXP version of GIMP exists? Thank you so much.

Pavel

P.S. I reckon that since I already posted the original photo by mistake, I should at least make a re-touched version.

Hallo Pavel,
thanks for nice comment

Gimp is a great Open Source project and is free for both : personal and commercial use.
It's native environment is Linux ( so here it works better ).
Of course the Open Source "community" or better say "movement", is not selfish - so
there are downloads for Unix, Mac and Windows users.
Homepage is: www.gimp.org
Install it and enjoy !
Barbara

Hi Barbara,

I couldn't help admiring the Gimp watercolor version that you did

I can't tell you how many times I've seen some Gimp results that I liked and when I go searching for www Gimp info about capabilities such as your watercolor result, I find nothing that makes sense to me.

I know each new program takes time to learn, and your result really makes me want to try it - even tho I don't have much excess time.

Could you briefly describe the process and gimp tools that you used.
Was there a plug-in that helped?
I assume that the brushes were the key - how much adjustment did you have to make in their properties?

I'd appreciate any help you can provide

Thanks

Bob Mc

Hallo Bob,
thanks for your nice comments and let's talk about mentioned watercolor imitation
-"I assume that the brushes were the key"- no, not here.
-"Could you briefly describe the process and gimp tools that you used " - of course

My first steps after cropping were painting to add some color to many parts of the image
(using standard round brushes mostly with opacity reduced to about 30%)
purpose was to close the composition.
Then used Smudge Tool and smudged many details out, to simplify the image.
The last step was Filter-> Blur-> Selective Gaussian Blur.
To find satisfying settings don't be afraid to experiment, in Gimp we have many undo-levels,
so repeating keyboard-shortcut Ctrl Z we can go back so many steps as we need

I will be glad if I was able to answer your question. I hope you will enjoy Gimp.
Greetings
Barbara
