  1. Thank you for the video. (I've used this a lot, it is very fun.) I would like to make a tutorial request. I like to put hats and/or wigs on people, the only problem is that the result is not nice. It doesn't look like it should be there. It doesn't look realistic. Could you make a tutorial that focuses on this?
    Thank you and I hope you continue with your gimp videos.

  2. Great tutorial, as are all your others! For me, I think I'd rather get Gimp to figure out how big to make the new canvas rather that use a calculator, by Image | Canvas Size, and rather than use the pixel count, change to percent and type in 200. No math needed 😀

  3. Thanks for this useful tutorial – I learnt a few new things here, and my image came out much better than what I would have ended up with if I'd have been playing with various colour/contrast settings all night…

  4. Thank you! I followed the directions and it came out great! I just watched your illustration again to make sure I was following correctly and I now have my own Pop Art Canvas. Thank you again!!! Yay!

  5. Hello and thank you for the videos. I have a question for this one. I hope you don't mind. Whenever I try to do this tutorial I can't put the picture on seperate layers. When I paste the cropped image it does not show a floating selection. Can you explain more starting from 2:54? I hope this does not inconvience you in any way. Thank you.

  6. Rotoscoping is an animation technique. GIMP is not an animation package, and although you CAN do very basic animation with GIMP, rotoscoping anything significant would be a huge pain.

    Having said that if you combine my tutorial on Roy Lichenstein Pop Art (the one with the busker) with the colour cycle gif tutorial, you should be able to figure out how to rotoscope a short animation.

  7. Instead of using
    Fuzzy Select Tool > Select White > Invert Selection, wouldn't it be easier just to right click the layer, on the layer dialogue, and select alpha to selection?

  8. And also rather than using the fuzzy select tool/invert, you can right click the layer in the layer box and click Alpha to Selection. Saves you a few steps.

    What's the point of doing Layer to Image size anyways if your just going to merge them?
