Stuff

Thought I'd add a link here to a couple of my favourite websites, Gimp Forums and GimpChat. They're great places for learning tips, tricks and getting advice on all things Gimp related.


This one is for a collection of my short stories. It's available to buy or borrow for the Kindle at Amazon.

United Kingdom
I'm Mark and I live in England. I'm older than I want to be but not as old as I'm going to be, always assuming I survive the next second, so that puts me somewhere between forty and one hundred - I should be so lucky.

In case anyone's interested my profile picture and avatar are based on a very good tutorial over at Gimpusers.com. And the little fella known as Wilber was created by Tuomas Kuosmanen <tigert@gimp.org>

Listening to:
Nights, Planet Rock
Days, Absolute Radio
Interests
What I like about Gimp is it gives me the ability to fight my corner. I don't need much else.

I'm wondering about how to use Gimp layer styles. Like the inner glow, inner shadow. Also wondering how to make chrome and shiny metallic gradients in Gimp. I have Gimp extensions with my version of Gimp.

I always use layerfx for inner shadows, inner glow and that kind of thing. I use the version without the layer groups as I find all the extra layers make the xcf too big to handle. If you haven't already got it it's available here gimpscripts.com/2011/10/gimp-l… I find I need to play around with the settings when following a ps tut, but I can usually get somewhere close to the desired effect.
For chrome and metal effects the best place to look is here gimpchat.com/ Under the tutorials index section look for someone called  Draconian, his metal gradients are some of the best.
