Need advice on how to fix a fade at the edge

Postby Dybal » Sun Jul 13, 2014 9:51 am

I've had no luck in trying to search how to fix this. I'm apparently not using the correct terms. Do let me know if anyone needs any links on how to fade the edges of a picture.

Left is a crop of the original edge, blacks adjusted, with the fade. On the right is akovia's fixed version:

I think this will work for the full version:

How would I go about replicating such a feat? Also, admit to being a bit lazy here, what's a good way to clean up the dust.

Sorry Dybal, almost overlooked this.
Hopefully this will be of some help.

Great stuff. I knew I was forgetting somthing, GIMP and Linux user. I just submitted the newly finished image. I guess we'll see if I was paying attention. ;)

I've used the clone tool before, but I only discovered what the heal tool actually does last week. Great explanation between the two, solid practical application and even the burn tool for good measure. You might want to think about adding it to your Gimp from scratch Tutorials. The video was very helpful.

Thanks guys. :)
I thought I covered most everything here in other videos which is why I hadn't considered adding this to youtube. If anything, maybe I can do a new video that covers scan cleanup that is less personalized. I could cover the 3 tools from this video and anything else I can think of that would be relevant. Let me know what you think.

You've touched on both tools individually at least. Can't remember if you have done both together, but either way this a particularly good explanation of them. From a beginner's perspective some minor repetition is probably a good thing. While both clone & heal have been introduced before, here we get to see them put to some different applications then we saw earlier. I did not think to even try the clone tool to fix the fade, and I likely wouldn't have started it on a transition if I had.

If you are doing a new video than how about adding in a talkie version of your Gimp_Tutorial_Scan-Cleanup video?
