Now that I've had a bit of time to think about it,
Possibly a GFX BORG
Would be more appropriate
Seems resistance is futile

Hi All,

I'm trying to learn GIMP (because it's FREE), but everyone here seems to be using Photoshop. I signed up at GIMPtalk, but it seems to be a dead forum. You can't even proceed until a Mod approves your initial posts and their Mods seem to be on vacation. Does anyone here know of an active GIMP forum where I can learn and get help from?

Thanks...

I gave up on forums for GIMP and learned from tutorials on YouTube mostly. I can still remember some of what I did with GIMP so I may be able to answer questions.

Kado - you just named your own poison.

Check this out. How do I make this 3d border work? I found a procedure on the net and have been trying to fill in the blanks (big blanks). The numbers are the original lines. The > directions are mine, but I am getting lost. Can't make it work.

Quote:
1. Round the corners of the image
Select > rounded rectangle...

2. Alpha to selection
Layer > Transparency > Alpha to Selection

3. Shrink selection (10px in this case)
Select > Shrink

4. Selection to path
Select > To Path

5. Alpha to selection
Layer > Transparency > Alpha to Selection

6. Subtract path from selection
Layer > Transparency > Subtract from Selection

7. New transparent layer

8. Fill selection on transparent layer with shaped (dimpled) blend white>black

You could also bump map the original image with the transparent layer.
I like simple directions. Not general guidelines. Your help is very much appreciated. I have a friend waiting on a Sig I'm doing, but I need to master this border to make the Sig look right.

Thanks for your assistance.

It wasn't a tutorial (I wish). Just a posting with the general numbered directions. Frustrating to follow.
Hey! If it were simple, I could do it.
