Hi, everyone! I was wondering if anyone could "educate" me on textures. I've seen and downloaded some beautiful textures here on LJ, but I'm just not sure how to properly use them, or set them into the background of my images. I've tried, but I just can't get the balance right (too light, too dark, it doesn't show up in the background the way I'd like, etc.}. Sometimes, I've seen textures layered over other textures, or just used at the top or bottom of an image, or used to fill in a plain or white background. ANY advice or tutorials would REALLY be appreciated. By the way, I use PSP at the beginner to moderate level.Thanks!

Dithering in the GIMP?

Hi, I have been looking through recent posts in this community and noticed some tutorials on how to create that cool dithering look(http://community.livejournal.com/icon_tutorial/5078617.html)

But I can't for the life of me figure out how to translate these tutorials for use in the GIMP though, as most of them are written for PS or PSP.

So I was wondering if there is anyone who knows how to dither using the GIMP 2.2? I'd be grateful for any and all help. =)


How to make your own simple textures tutorial

In order to make a good texture sometimes you've got to start out with a simple texture. I'm going to show you how to make the simplest texture of all using just Photoshop patterns and a single effect. I normally use these as base layers for other textures, so don't be impressed.
