cool gimp effect!

hey all,

just did a cool effect with the gimp without even meaning too, thought i'd tell ya about what i did. looks like that green astro turf stuff (you know, the stuff on the football field?)

created a background layer, filled it with dark green (about #002200)

created a layer above that, filled it with grey (about #999999)

on the grey layer, i applied filters>artistic>cubism and set tile size to 13.6 and tile saturation to .5

i adjusted the image>colors>levels of that layer, adding a bunch of green

voila! astroturf!

if anybody uses this effect or has an improvement for it, please let me know!

I like it. Gives me a thought.

I stumbled across a cool effect as well. It creates an image similar to the emboss filters->distorts->emboss, but gives a smoother appearance.

open an image, duplicate the image as a second layer images->colors->invert

Set the transparency of the top layer to 50% Should look pretty much solid grey.

Now grab the top layer and slide it just a bit. voila, emboss, kinda.
