Gimp / Photoshop

So, I just got GIMP and am going to start trying to learn to use it a bit. Let's see your GIMP or photoshop skills. Post up your best work.

I don't know about best, but I thought my recent "Saddam head in fireball" gimpification was amusing anyway http://bikeforums.net/showthread.php?t=325525

Good luck figuring everything out with the Gimp, its a great app but the documentation isn't the greatest. Google searches often help when trying to figure out something new. Maybe join a gimp forum for when you have questions.

Hmm... probably not my best work, nor most impressive. But it's pretty recent, and those familiar with this kind of image doctoring can appreciate it.



Long story. I needed a picture of just her and I together. I didn't have any, so I made one. Here's the original.



You could see I had to fabricate parts of my shirt, and her entire right arm. Not bad.

That's incredible! I think the best part is her arm. Where'd that come from?!

Crono, that is the best photo manipulation I have ever seen in my life (and there are people at my work who thought THEY were the best; they can't even come close to what you did)!!
