Leadership

Blurb

Get GIMP today! (2.8.18)

Get 2.6 instead, it can make GoldSrc textures.

First person to contribute with a tutorial of his own, will stand beside me as leader.

Plug-ins of interest


VTF Plug-in

Allows GIMP to read, edit, and save '.vtf' files, using a layer mask as the alpha channel, or a different layer entirely.

G'Mic

A big set of filters, which function like the 'filter gallery' from Photoshop, with some extra stuff. Also allows you to make your own filters, read here how.

GIMP normalmap plug-in

Allows for normalmap creation, also allows you to look at a 3D object for preview.

DDS plug-in

Allows GIMP to read, edit, and save '.dds' files, using layers as mipmaps.

Layer styles

Allows you to make use of layer styles just like in Photoshop; not all of these are in G'Mic, and even if they were, this is much more accesible. Though it doesn't really function like the way photoshop does it, it can be put in new layers so not all is lost when you mess up.

Tutorials of interest

These are all on the GameBanana site, but there are many, many more everywhere on the internet (like on pixel2life for example).


Link

Tutorial for batch converting TGA files to JPG, which can also be used to convert anything GIMP can open to anything GIMP can export.



Link

Video tutorial for making a signature.



Link

Explains how the path tool can be used to modify a selection.



Link

Simple, but effective, way of making gradient text.



Link and link

Two easy to follow tutorials for making a signature



Link

A somewhat overcomplicated way of making a transparent spray.



Link

Easier, yet outdated, way of making a transparent spray.



Link

Simple brushed metal tutorial, which I guess doesn't tile, but will probably work well enough for texturing purposes.



Link

Video tutorial on how to make a buy menu image, though I should remark you get better results if you make the hand invisible by putting '$no_draw 1' in a 'hands.vmt', and use the v_model anyway. Also note that the GIMP has a function that can create an image by selecting a window, or from clipboard.



Link

Outdated, but functional, tutorial on making a decal.



Link

Tutorial on making an animated '.gif', can also be used to make a '.vtf' with frames.



Link

Interesting tutorial on making an animated special effect.



Link

Real fake HDR screenshots.



Link

Simple tutorial on making very simple reskins, this is for newbies only and the results should never ever be submitted; though perhaps in combination with some selection trickery, it could at least be decent.



Link

Selfillumination.



Link

Proper JPG export

Other nonsense.

Brushes

iceytina's GIMP brushes

Metric fuckton of brushes exclusively for GIMP.

droz928 brush set

A seriously unfunny quantity of brushes for GIMP.

DeviantArt's GIMP brush collection

Go nuts.

    GIMP 2.8.18 is out, it's mostly bug fixes.

     2.9.4 should be out soon too, which is the unstable branch of a very new GIMP once again.

    If anyone could tell me how well GIMP is for SSB4 modding, raise your voice, it's knowledge everyone can use.

    You're not inherently learning anything here, through osmosis or otherwise, but it is a place where you can ask questions.
