Thumbs up Creative Interpretations: Free for all...

Hey guys;
I used to be an avid user who posted lots of comments and was more of a view then a poster as far as retouching goes.
I recently downloaded Gimp onto my computer as I heard from a friend that it was a great way to get rid of stuborn zits on family photos or self portraits.

After spending an hour on this site as a Guest I desided to see if my account was still active - it was!! Which brings me here.

I would love to post some photos that have are usually 3072x 1728 and Jpegs. If anyone would be interested in playing around with some photos I would love to use them as tempates to see if I can get the same results through teaching myself how to use Gimp.

Completely up to you guys, let me know
Until then I'm going to look further at this site and see what's changed.
Thanks, Jillian

Re: Creative Interpretations: Free for all...

Welcome to our little corner Jillian. GIMP is my favorite editor by the way (I also have CS2; just more experienced with the GIMP). If you look up Degrunging, you will come upon byRo's technique which is quite powerful. I like using a GIMP Centric Degrunging technique which I call ACE, Grain Extract Overlay. ACE (Adaptive Contrast Enhancement) is a GIMP filter which you can download at this link. Also, GIMP can run quite a lot of PS compatible plugins (need to download PSPI from this link if it isn't already part of your particular build). I used Mehdi's Fine Threshold filter after running GIMP's Neon Edge detect filter (and inverted the result) for the graphic art rendering.

LK... thx for uploading a pic to work with.

Hi Jillian... welcome back!

I used two Windows plugins to get this effect: Akvis Sketch and Impressionist.

Hope this gives you some inspiration. Thanks for letting us play!

Let's see something you've worked on.

These links can also help you as you use the program:

Gimp, like Photoshop takes a lot of effort to learn.
