Post by akovia »

Just a repository for gimp tutorials that cover some common tasks relating to creating fanart.
*Make sure to select the 1080p option for playback under the gear icon on the youtube player.*



How to Properly Re-Size and Center HDLogos.
How to Adjust Levels in Gimp.


A Practical guide to adjusting levels in Gimp for beginners.

Detailed information on levels available here.
How to level your monitor here.
Poster Creation Basics.


Not really a "quickie" but I go over some basic stuff like aspect ratios, how to find a source, and even some text removal techniques.

Just a heads up that I posted a new quickie video on how to adjust levels. Though this is for gimp, the Photoshop tool is almost identical in every way.

BTW, I'm taking requests, so post if you want to see a specific tool/filter or technique. <== That I know of course.

Thinking of doing the resynthesize plugin next.

*update*

Just added a video for poster basics. Been having a lot of denials lately for stretched out posters so I made this to help explain how to properly size and crop your posters. Also covers finding a good source and some text removal.

Ooo yeah ... Hair - is the most necessary!
Hair!!! Is a very complex topic!
I can tell you three options! Use the channels, channel mixer, and selection color range! Work with multiple layers and with different refractive!
Option fourth - on YouTube a lot of lessons! :-D
