Making Bubbles With GIMP

I've already posted a video on "How To Make Bubbles With Adobe Photoshop" but since not everyone is able to afford this program, Now I will show you a similar tutorial for GIMP.

GIMP is an acronym for GNU Image Manipulation Program. It is a freely distributed program for such tasks as photo retouching, image composition and image authoring.

It has many capabilities. It can be used as a simple paint program, an expert quality photo retouching program, an online batch processing system, a mass production image renderer, an image format converter, etc.

GIMP is expandable and extensible. It is designed to be augmented with plug-ins and extensions to do just about anything. The advanced scripting interface allows everything from the simplest task to the most complex image manipulation procedures to be easily scripted.

In this video I will show you the basics on making a clear (see-through) bubble on GIMP and how to recolor it to black. Once again, this is only basics and is not a standard procedure. The bubbles can be done in other ways, you have mix what you learn and your creativity so you can get exactly what you want!
