thanks y'all I will do just that and will hopefully make an awesome map thanks to y'all!!
Here is the second installment in the miscellaneous tutorials series. Many of the more experienced members here will already be familiar with the techniques of this mini-tutorial, but I think it might still be useful, especially for newer members.
Hey Arsheesh I was just wondering what version of Gimp you are using. I tried to follow the simple steps above for making the icon symbols above. However when I go into GIMP I am not seeing the menu routing you are referring to.
Little bit of help please with some clarification on that. Would be greatly appreciated.
These are great Arsheesh.
Tulgurth I think Arsheesh might be using the popular Layer Effects plugin, which replicates Photoshop filters, and which works on all versions of Gimp. Download it for free here Layer Effects | GIMP Plugin Registry
Kewl thank you. I have been picking up the plugins as I need to, apparently this is another time when I need too. LOL
Fortunately for me I still have questions and 2 people who can probably answer my questions for me. Thanks by the way Jack, that was a winner. But on to the next step, sorry guys I am a noob at this and working on my first digital map. Now that I have the symbols looking the way I want, how do I apply them to the map?
Nevermind, I figured it would be to use it as a brush. So I went searching for how to make a brush in GIMP and guess, I found your post concerning not coming out in the FG color. Well I followed the instructions there and VIOLA !!!!! I now have a brush that makes the symbol I want. YEE HAW !!!!
