[flattr /] This week I am solving last weeks problem with a layer group. In #150 I painted over the saturation information without looking at the original data. This time I use Mathias’ method with a layer group. Layer groups are a cool new feature of GIMP 2.7. The work is not yet finished, but they are already usable. 2.7 is “mostly stable” now, you should consider the switch.

And I put again the hat on the street to collect money for the server costs for 2011. See the right sidebar for details.

Sorry, no TOC yet.

[flattr /] Finally a new episode – I never had one with more obstacles! But here it is. (And now I even have no time for a proper blog post, because I am going on a class trip tomorrow.)

I explore two new features of GIMP 2.7.2 – I am amazed at the progress.

Then I adapt the often used (and often shown here) technique of dodging and burning with a layer mask to fiddeling with the saturation of an image. I don’t recall to have seen this described anywhere – but I am sure I am not the first one to use this. Has someone a link?

EDIT: There is a big difference between this and the dodge and burn technique. Here I did not change the original data, I made some new. More thinking needed.
