Need help with jpg-cannot get it to work..

Hi,
Im hoping someone can help me. I have a color photo I need to turn into a coloring book page.

Im using gimp 2.10.14

I have tried everything I can find about doing this with older versions of gimp but when I use those directions they don't work as the menu has changed. There doesn't seem to be any documentation on how to do this in this version. Can anyone do me a favor and walk me thru this? When I try it the old way I just wind up with black and white blobs.

I am starting with a color photo that is a jpg. I turn it into greyscale.
I need to make a duplicate to work on.

now what? It needs to wind up a lined pic suitable to use as a coloring page.

Thanks so much!

Start by increasing the contrast of your colour photo.

Need help with jpg-cannot get it to work..

Hi Rick,
I have never used gimp before-only photoshop so this is my first project with it.
Plus there is no manual for this version so I have no instructions- im feeling a bit like a fish out of water.. I have heard such great things about gimp but I am totally lost- could you help with this and show me how to get it to look the way I need?

thanks!

Can you be more specific about "turn into a coloring book page"?

Need help with jpg-cannot get it to work..

Hi there,
I need it to look like a better version of what I attached here-the original is on my original question. I did this but its not done in gimp and its not exactly what I want. Im looking to be able to turn a photo jpg into a coloring book page-black and white outline of the pics so it can be colored-other versions of gimp have instructions how to do it however they don't apply to this version and things they refer to aren't even in this version. Im trying but feel totally lost as I've only used photoshop before and never gimp but I've heard such great things about it.
ill upload the one I was able to do so u get a better idea when u compare to the original-

please let me know your thoughts- thank you!

Hi weblady,

GIMP does have a learning curve so be gentle with yourself. No, I can't show you what to do, especially not with a Tabby! Sorry,

Rick S.

You can use the / command to find functions/meu items/plugins/actions in GIMP, which sometimes helps (although it just does them, it doesn't teach you where they are, unfortunately).

This is really not an easy photo to work with - there's lots of digital camera noise and lots of grey everywhere.

I'd probaly make a new transparent layer and just draw the lines over it, then delete the base layer. Or, use Inkscape and draw bezier curves, but that's a little tricker to learn than just drawing with the pen on the tablet.

I took your cat image and tired to do what you wanted. See if this works for you:

Open image in GIMP > Duplicate Layer > Desaturate Layer > Duplicate this BW layer > Change mode to Dodge
Now you should see a completely blank screen. > Gaussian Blur (play with the number - around 5 should do it ). You should see an outline of your image.

Next use the levels (or curves) to adjust as needed. Next sharpen image.

This should get you started. Otherwise, let me know.
