If I may make a suggestion, whitestuff...

Instead of making fewer points with the bezier, and then formatting them to curve with the figure, another thing you can do is just make A LOT of points closer together.

If you zoom in to 200%, you can do this fairly easily, and it eliminates the 'loops' and the 'image cutting.' It just takes lots of clicking, but if you are fairly coordinated, you can keep going for a while without having to back up. I just keep my left hand on CTRL+Z. Since the points are close together, you still get a nice, smooth round to your figure, and you can even fine tune tough spots like tight corners.

It seems to work for me, I have made two customs so far using your tutorial.

Thanks for your time in creating this great help!

Hey guys,

I seem to be having trouble saving my edited pictures as an XCF file on my laptop. On my Desktop, it works fine, but the desktop is much slower and I prefer to use my laptop. Any ideas as to why I may be having this problem?

It works for a few seconds, then GIMP stops responding and closes. I think I figured it out, though. Whenever I save the image right after I add the layer mask, it freezes, but If I wait till I put the picture on the card template, it seems to work fine. I will try that out a few times and see if that is the problem.

Also, I have discovered that you tutorial is good for more than just Heroscape! I just work some GIMP magic on my graduation photos and they look really good. Maybe i'll post it soon so you you can see.

Thanks for the tutorial whitestuff!

Re: whitestuff's advanced gimpshop tutorial

Woah...I'm overwhelmed with the effort you put in this tutorial, Whitestuff. I'm saving your first post on my PC for quick reference on using the GIMP. Maybe not for making custom cards but for other cool things. Thanks.

The steps for both of these parts are in the tutorial. The fogging starts at about step 22 or so. As for the 'cannot export'; what happens when you choose the export? The steps for this are at about 45.

Thanks I actually made it a while ago and looking back on it now; I think I did an alright job of it. The whole thing took me for ever as I don't usually use the GIMP myself. I had to figure out how to do in the GIMP what I normally do in Photoshop. Not too bad for a novice.
