Here are the steps I took: Duplicate the base layer and select the copy. Apply an edge detect filter (Filters -> Edge-Detect -> Edge...) using these settings: My goal here is to get clear contrast between my object and my background. I found Sobel worked the best and simply fiddled until I got this result. Threshold the colors (Colors -> Threshold...) ...

I used this technique with your sample : Duplicating the layer and in this same layer : Desaturating colours according to "Luminosity". Bightness-Contrast tool : Brightness -74 & Contrast 127. Coping the layer and applying it as a Layer Mask to this current layer. Applying the "Hard Light" to the layer mode and adjusting opacity if needed.

I found the answer. I was searching for Color balance. Select the layer Click Tools -> Color Tools -> Color Balance A new window will be opened: Here you can modify the colors. If you need more white, uncheck the Preserve luminosity checkbox and move all the sliders to right.

No - a Floating Selection is internally attached to the layer it was pasted into. I suggest you try one of the following workarounds: 1) Promote the Floating Selection to a New Layer (just press the new layer button); Position this layer; Duplicate it as many times as you want; For each duplicate, manipulate the layer stack to place it above one of your ...

Firstly, jsbueno's answer is better than this one. It's more complete, and exposes more of GIMP's powerful tool set. This answer is merely to show different ways of accomplishing tasks in GIMP. This technique might be useful if you wanted something a bit more stylized. Use the ellipse tool to select your outer-most border, and hit enter to clear ellipse ...

As was said in another answer, the default behavior of the move tool, is to select whatever visible element is under the cursor. This means that if one clicks on a transparent part of a layer, something beneath it will be moved. One way to avoid this problem is to switch the tool mode to only moving the active layer. This way, no matter where you click in ...

Create a new layer with a width of 10px and a transparent background. Select your new layer and use the Grid rendering tool (Filters->Render->Pattern->Grid...).I used these settings: Pay particular attention to the Horizontal Lines width of 5, and Spacing of 20. Making the vertical line width 0 keeps them from being drawn so vertical line spacing ...

DigiKam and Gimp are applying slightly different algorithms to their rendering of the image. Without testing, it's impossible to say which one (or both) is in error, but that is certainly the case. If the contrast levels match when one is set to use Perceptual and the other Relative Colorimetric rendering, then the most likely explanation is that one of ...

So,as Alan had put it - one of the easiest ways to achieve this, is to cut out the image area, and leave the phone frame with a transparent window. You then add any desired image in a separate layer, bellow the cut-out frame, and export it. Step by step: Import your image above into GIMP On the Layers dialog (ctrl + L), right click on the layer with the ...

The best way to do this kind of compositing is to cut out the map completely, so that you have a frame that's transparent in the image area, then put your own image on a layer below. That eliminates alignment problems. I don't off-hand recall the specifics of how Gimp does this, but it certainly has the capability.

What Scott said. You didn't start with a PSD, so there is no PSD to deliver and every reason not to go to extremes to create one. Explain to the client that the site was created directly in HTML. If the project is complete, they don't require design files. If it isn't, I would definitely not deliver a Photoshop design file even if it existed. It's up to you ...
