Gimp free program to edit photos from 3, making selections - HD video tutorial

Hello friends are Dan, today we will continue the tutorial about Gimp, this is the third part in which we will talk about "Making Selections".

Many of you, in the comments box, you compared with the Gimp Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Photoshop is a program dedicated PRO segment and can not be compared in any way with Gimp, which is 100% free, yet the Gimp you are very good and not saying for a moment that it is a free program.

For home users and those who want to take the first steps in graphic design and editing, gimp is the best choice, photoshop is inclined towards professional use and it is therefore a bit harder to understand by users at the beginning of way.

The theme of the third tutorial in the series GIMP tutorials is "making selections." In this tutorial there are several selection methods.'ll Have to choose when you process your own images those methods that are best suited for situations in time. I recommend for making selections as to use a larger zoom, add masks, layers and an essential ingredient to have rabdare.Acest tutorial describes how you can insert an image of a baby inside a floral frames respectively as can add various effects to a text.

For a better understanding of the examples in this tutorial video about Gimp, it is necessary to view the first two tutorials:

1. Gimp free program to edit photos 1 the installation and layers.

2. Gimp, free editing photos, the 2 masking layers.

  4. Good for you are the best in May do some tutorials on effects in photos!

  5. I hope you doing some parts!

  6. The text effects when giving effect to provide "relief" I do not change the text but opens another page identical and unchanged text, every time I try to give the effect that the output text in relief, he opens another window with image and text all unchanged. Why?
    I did exactly what you showed in the tutorial but nothing, I also opened another window with the same picture and text output without effect in relief.

    Thank you.

  7. @ Roxana: That phenomenon it describes probably happens because you checked "Work on copy" when applying filter "Add Bevel". Uncheck that option.

  20. Hi Dan,
    Once again congratulations and thanks for. a work that faci.Vreau to tell myself I can handle general ceva.In pretty good with computers, even working in a shop where they do service to PC,
    I've seen many tutorials and examples of "out" wrinkles, but such processing person concerned "rejuvenates" the max-10 15 years 30.Am not seen "aging" which still is not enough realiste.Nu Let's add a few wrinkles young face look young enough batrin.Sunt wrinkles and dark circles and other signs and pt. it all looks like there are plenty of other side are tineri.Pe elderly people who do not have wrinkles or insignificant, yet their expression old man ... And there is something even a blurred picture, or long distance in which barely distinguishable facial lines, no wrinkles or blemishes vb, but even so it is very obvious that the person is young or old woman ..
    What I have seen an example of "rejuvenation" dramatic and I found no friends "specialist" in something to help me I decided to experiment yourself .. and your tutorial failed to fix ..: P
    Incidentally, you may have noticed that so far, no star (so wealthy man) who resorted to all means plastic surgery (breast lift, implants, lasers. Etc. ..) does not look like 25-30 years. Considering that practically these doctors, you come away completely skin of the face and how they move and do what they want with it .. starting to become somewhat absurd that both interventions fail to restore the appearance of old May you ..
    So with those 2 pictures in face, just portion from the root nose in above, to eliminate cheeks, chin .. I started to Confront differences .. la beginning I moved only the eyes, from one to another .. then entire portion what contains eyes .. the result .. the picture is young, aging eyes, it's all just young face has a different expression but is definitely young ... and the picture is the old man .. young eyes seen from a post it's really old woman with those eyes ...
    I used the "patch tool" for blurring the differences between skin color from one to another., But it came out exactly the color I copied it, he did seem somewhat a combination ..

    Okay, so a lot easier ..: D I tried to draw an ellipse with less bold outline, write a text for it .. and I found .. I understand that might be made by concentric ellipses 2 filling the space between them with a simple color .. but can not ..?
    I hope I'll make some time to answer me, all the best!

  21. @ Neagh: 1.Te please just send me the two images on e-mail.Voi address this topic in next tutorial.
    2.Construiesti an elliptical selection with the "Ellipse Select Tool", then select Border, choose the color and finally Edit-Fill with FG Color.

    I downloaded the latest version of gimp. no longer appears black white panel tollbox. do not know where you activate occur. can someone help me? thanks

  59. I like all these tutorials because they are very explicit, being an elderly person who has never worked with such programs. Mr. Dan you are an excellent pedagogue. I would like you to continue doing tutorials in this program, I know that there are many on the internet, but I think that many others do not know English and we find it difficult to understand.
    I'd like a tutorial explaining how we can turn a black and white photo into a color, where the person in the photo is hairy and colorful and I'd love to help with a tutorial if possible.
    I would like to do a tutorial like this in Romanian, I'm trying to do this for my game but I can not, I do not understand the language and it's hard. This is the tutorial: which I would like in Romanian and more explicit if it can. Thank you in the hope that you will help me. I have the Gimp 2.8.22 version in the computer because I recently saw your tutorials and I started to learn how can I do with this program?

    I have a problem with the Gimp 3 tutorial, more specifically text editing. When I get to the Pasted Layer, after switching to the To Path option, I delete the top layer and press the CTRL + C + V keys, the tutorial shows the layer called Pasted Layer written in green, and the Fooating Selection extension, written with black and do not understand where they are wrong.
