    Default Make burnt old parchment in GIMP

    I need some burnt and crumbled old parchment texture done for maps that I'm going to do... I have nothing else to do that seems fun at the moment -.-' I need it to look bit yellow. Kind of like this: Make burnt old parchment in GIMP-stock-photo-122285-burnt-parchment-paper.jpg so anyone know how to? I also don't have any other tools than GIMP.

    Take a look at some of the tutorials done by RobA. He has at least two on making a parchment thingy in GIMP.

    Well.. the easiest way would be to find any post by RobA and look in his signature for his tutorials link. Alternately, go to the advanced search and click on the Search Single Content type "tab". Put in Username = RobA and change to the "Threads started by user" in the drop down. Then select the Tutorials/How To forum from the list box and go. For me, it was roughly item 25/26 in the search results.

    @ Kazou I know it may seem odd to you that jfrazierjr did not just post a link... helping you tolearn to use the search feature of the site is more helpful to you than a link.

    Searching through the "Tutorials/How To" Forum was how I got started here.

    This kind of response to folks who help you (and they did; you got to it, did you not?) is a pretty good incentive for people to not help you in the future ...

    I know how to search myself, they weren't helping at all... You do not help by telling what people already know.

    I have to agree with Gidde, Kazou....

    A suggestion I would add, is "Heed the Warning"...

    We of the Guild are generally very helpfull and welcoming, but having a thankless attitude is a good way to get a cold shoulder.
    Art Critic = Someone with the Eye of an Artist, Words of a Bard, and the Talent of a Rock.

    Please take my critiques as someone who Wishes he had the Talent

    @Kazou: I don't know what you do or do not know. (not being a mind reader) If you had said "I searched the forum for hours and can't find the tutorial" we might have just posted the link. The fact that this tutorial is easy to find and because you are kind of "young" made us default to the "teaching" you how to find it yourself. Most of us feel that you did not know how to search or were unwilling to search because of your age. I am sorry for assuming that about you.

    Taking the time to post anything is more work than it is worth just to be rude and not help. By doing what we said you found what you were looking for? I do think that is helping. I was trying to let you know that he was trying to help you and that he was not being rude. I know how hard it is to just read a quick post and miss the meaning of what someone is trying to tell you.

    The more specific the question the easier it is to help you. Providing a "Work In Progress" showing what you are trying to do will make others here respond with more helpful information. Please don't let this be a negative experience for you here at the guild. There will always be help for you here, if you are not rude and can show a willingness to learn.

    I hope this helps you to know that we take the time to post because we do care and we are not trying to be rude.
