I always seem to forget how to fade the edge of an image in the gimp… so here’s a note-to-self:
- select the area to preserve; IF YOU WANT THE EDGE TO FADEOUT, SELECT A BOX JUST INSIDE THE ENTIRE IMAGE; YOU CAN ALSO USE THE MAGIC WAND TO SELECT AN AREA, AND SHRINK AND GROW AS NEEDED
- SELECT EDIT->FEATHER, GIVE IT ABOUT 5 PIXELS; THIS APPEARS TO DO NOTHING BUT PUT A BIT OF ROUNDED CORNERS ON YOUR SELECTION, WEIRD EH?
- NOW, INVERT THE SELECTION, AND HIT DELETE – vioala, GIMP FADES OUTWARD. YEs, IT’s weird!
soRRY ABOUT THE caps, IT’S HONESTLY EXACTLY how the letters are spewing out on my macbOok prO, Now That i”ve Mananged to get it humming and then spill a full glass of water on it. AWESOmENEsS. AND that”s With another Keyboard attacheD. aPPARENTLY THE MAIN KEyboard is flicking THe shift KEy on aND OFF LIKE A CHRISTmAS TrEE. AND IT’S not EVen ThaNKSGIving Yet.
