    First make a straight path with the paths tool

    Then hold CTRL or Command (i belive) and click to places on the line

    Then move one up and the other down

    Then continue the path all around

    Then get a color, in this tutorial im using orange. Also get a lighter color that works with the other color.
    then fill the selection with a radial gradient, and there you go!

    Re: Tutorial - Short Smooth Paths

    yes... okay...

    question:
    use the paths tool, and make a smooth up-down-wave :p
    thats ( look above ) is probably the easiest way!!

    Re: Tutorial - Short Smooth Paths

    Thanks a lot for this Maffe! Very simple, but I was still going about it completely wrong.

    What do you mean? Is there a way to make the edges a bit smother?

    Download the GreyCstoration script for GIMP. It's a denoise plugin, the best.

    Re: Tutorial - Short Smooth Paths

    There are probably an eazier way to do this, but i think this is the best result using paths tool!

    vt, i belive that command and ctrl serve the same purpose in gimp ;)
