About This Class

GIMP 3D Book Covers 3: Things My Grandpa Taught Me

In this class you'll learn:

  • How to use images to produce a bump map through a white layer.
  • Create a cloudy night sky with a moon in it containing the Word "Moon". We then suspend this above a reflection in water, and you can tell that it's water because we put a ripple in it.
  • We look into the use of the many filters provided by the GIMP and suggest a homework assignment of going through all the filters to find out what each of them do.
  • I mention that fact that the GIMP displays tools tips when you hover over a button. This is something I forgot to mention earlier and it's been gnawing at me ever since.
  • I perform some of the most common tasks that I've performed quickly in the past so that viewers can keep up with fundamental actions that may have previously been missed.

So, don't miss out -- join me for the fun,

---Brian
