Gimp-Forum Wettbewerb

Posted on Updated on


Hey! Wer Gimp gerne für sein Schaffen einsetzt und sein Können mal unter Beweis stellen mag,
ist herzlich zum Wettbewerb im deutschem Gimp-Forum eingeladen. Gerne könnt Ihr mir auch Eure Ideen hier in den Komentaren Posten, ich werde diese dann für Euch dort einstellen.
Es geht darum aus einer oder mehrerer dieser Vorlagen ein nettes Bild zu kreieren, eine Fotomontage eben.
(Wer sich fragt was die Mikrokopaufnahme darstellt: es ist ein Sonnenblumenblatt. Cool oder ?)

I started a little contest in the german Gimp-Forum. The users should edit one or more from these five free photos to an other nice picture.

If you interested in it, you could post your idea as comment here too. I will show it then in the forum. 😉

(Last photo is taken from a leaf of a a sunflower..if someone want to know what it is…)

I will show you my next Gimp work.

I was surfing around this cool Flickr archive: http://www.flickr.com/commons/ and want to change a new photo to vintage and coloring an old b/w picture to a new look.
Here the first, a photo taken by myself on my short trip to London last weekend (man, cool city. I love it!):

Ok, thats it so far…hope you like it. 🙂

Minitutorial: exporting multiple pages from Inkscape

Posted on Updated on

Hey There!

If you need more as one page in Inkscape and you don’t want to use Scribus, i found out an little workaround to create and export them. First you need this python script: http://ciantic.blogspot.com/2009/02/inkscape-slicer.html

Follow the instructions there and start Inkscape. In my example i use the DIN A2 Format. I want to export four DIN-A4 pages.
So,set your document size and create your guidelines and begin to import four svg files.
Then you have to add another layer an name it “slices” and draw rectangles (activate snapping !) over the pages. To export your pages go to Effects > Export > Slicer. Thats it !

I think it could be helpful if you want to create a comic or coloring book or an complete magazine.
