In this episode I’ll finish the editing of the image that kept me busy in the last shows. There was a lot to do – darkening the ship with a selective layer mask, cloning out some driftwood and half a bird, correcting the aspect ratio to something the printer will be happy with and giving him a hint how to print the image with a gray and colour gradient.
Before I really send the image to the printer I’ll make the birds in the top left corner a bit darker – but you know how to do that.
Meet the GIMP! is now listed in iTunes and Podcast Alley. If you like the show please let the people there know.
