No, no real emergency here, just an emergency switch in a Berlin subway station. It needed some attention concerning colour and contrast to get it a bit more creepy.

I go through the whole image processing with cropping and changing the colours in several layers. Nothing new technically, but the basics about layer masks explained again.

The updated companion file contains also a version for GIMP 2.6. It’s the same, just without layer groups.

  1. Nice to see a show again, Rolf. Withdrawal symptoms are finally subsiding… 😉

    Is there a reason you didn’t start with UFRaw for this shot? Could’ve made some things easier.

  2. I can’t open the companion file, it says it says, “unsupported XCF file version 3 encountered.” Could you repost the XCF so that GIMP 2.6.11 can open it? Thanks!

Anything to add from your side of the computer?
