Special Gradient

Postby virtualTune » Mon Sep 28, 2009 6:15 pm

Hey Guys,
I got used to working a lot more with Gradients in the past weeks. However I still didn't figure out how to make a Desaturated to colored gradient. If anyone knows how to make a picture look normal on one side and desaturated on the other with a nice gradient, pls tell me!

Thx in advance

For example, a radial gradient as described above, would be great for the attached pic! thx

- open your image
- duplicate the layer
- desaturate the duplicated layer
- add a layer mask to the duplicated layer
- select this layer mask
- add a gradient from white to black to this layer mask

- Read a good GIMP book ;)

That's it.

It's not possible to add that kind of gradient. None of the blend modes would do that. What lisa said about using a second layer is the right process. :)

... just select a radial gradient. It's that easy.

And, once again, read the GIMP user manual.

Hhhm, do you mean, that

- manuals are for noobs. Nerds use empiric techniques, aka "try 'n' error"?
- THIS forum is much more informativ than any manual on the planet?
- you don't own any manual?
