Re: whitestuff's advanced gimpshop tutorial

I made one card, but when I reopened GIMP to make another, the image layers window disappeared, and I can't find it. I need to select the other layers, but I can't figure out how. Can someone help?

EDIT: Nevermind, I found it.

Re: whitestuff's advanced gimpshop tutorial

I have a question... You mentioned that you have to buy the font used on the cards. Where exactly do you get that?

You can find them here...

They sell for $57 each font.

I use 57 condensed, 67 medium condensed and 97 black condensed.

You might be able to find them elsewhere with the help of

Re: whitestuff's advanced gimpshop tutorial

Oh, wow, that's a lot for a single font... I thought it'd be a few dollars I could spend to enhance my cards...

Ah, well....

With a little poking around in the seedier parts of the web you might even find it for nothing.

Not that I'd recommend doing that of course...

I never do anything like that, trust me.

Re: whitestuff's advanced gimpshop tutorial

Let me start off by saying you did a great job on this tutorial, whitestuff.

For the hitzone section, is there a way to just select the figure and Fill it in with the foreground color (solid red)? All the other tutorials I've read have done this, but I can't seem to do it with this method. My hand isn't very steady, so if I painted it manually it would probably come out sloppy. Is there a solution?

I made another copy of the figure image and changed it from .xcf to a .jpg and opened it with Photoshop. I was able to easily fill the figure in with red and add a green dot, but then it wouldn't let me copy it back over to GIMP.

You can, I think (but not certain), if you make your selection of the figure and then make a new empty layer. I think that you can them just use the bucket to fill the new layer (at least I'm pretty sure you can in Photoshop...).

However, with the outline of the figure selected (the marching ants around it) you can paint away without worrying about neatness as you won't paint over that selection line.

I actually use photoshop myself and find it better than the GIMP. You can take this tute and apply the same processes in PS and have it work just as well. I even did a Photoshop tute on the silhouette section.

Re: whitestuff's advanced gimpshop tutorial

Thanks. I was able to finish my card with your help. Also, it turns out that I was supposed to select my figure with the "select regions by color" tool instead of the "select contiguous regions" tool. I didn't think it would matter since the background was transparent.

Do you have to use a Jandar card?
