Common usage

change color image to B&W

  • ‘Image/Mode/Grayscale’, or
  • ‘Colors/Desaturate’

auto adjust colors

  • ‘Colors/Auto [White Balance Normalize Stretch Contrast HSV]’ or
  • ‘Colors/Levels’, click ‘Auto’

Why filters are not available

好多图片刚打开时是在’indexed color mode’, 所以很多效果都不支持. 解决办法很简单, click menu ‘Image/Mode’, choose ‘RGB’.

最省事的一种方法, 用人家定制好的

  2. Select/Feather 10px
  3. Select/Invert

在Gimp 2.4以后有一种更简便的方法

How to make an image to sphere/fisheye/circle

我摸索出三种方法, 不过没找到最满意的效果, 先记下来吧.

  1. ‘Filters/Map/Map object…’, 在option里选’sphere’.
  2. ‘Filters/Distorts/Lens distrotion’, 换换’Main/Edge/Zoom’的数值来制造fisheye 效果.
  3. 这个plugin能制作出Amazing circles效果, 不过不是我想要的.
  4. GMIC里有fisheye和sphere效果.


save the plugin to .gimp-2.x/plug-ins

  • G’MIC有很多很漂亮的filter
