I was wondering if it anyone knows how to make something like this:

in GIMP? A gif effect over a still photo? Is it possible to do in GIMP?

I just got Animstack, so I'm still learning how to use it (I'm still very new to gif making in general), but if it is, I'd really appreciate it if you could please help me out with a tutorial.

Dear comm members,
I am very new to the art side of things, I haven't even posted anything on lj yet. But I'd like to; I'm currently working on a prompt for one of the fandoms here. Unfortunately, my muses ran rampant and now I'm a little stuck with gimp 2.8. So I'd love to talk to someone about their experiences with creating gifs there. Specifically, is there any way to avoid the mode switch to 'indexed' from RGB? Because that just about slaughters the whole thing (which you experienced people probably were already aware of but I wasn't). Grayscales are fine quality wise, but I'd love to keep it colored.
Also, I'm currently at 100+ layers for the background alone - the muses, I'm telling you - and that makes the .xcf file huge and veeery slow to work with. Not only do I still need to tweak the whole thing to smooth it out, but I also need to add the actual foreground sequence with the characters so now I'm thinking about doing that in a second file and merging both of them in the end, probably by creating a new layergroup for every single background layer. Has anyone done that kind of thing before or knows the problems I'm talking about? I'm sure there must be easier ways to do this, so any advice would be highly appreciated.

Dear mods, I have no idea about tagging this request or if this is even the right place to ask these things so I'm sorry for all mistakes I probably made.

Hello, not really new here but I'm new at posting. :D

I was wondering if someone can give me a tutorial for this kind of edits?:

For the first three, I would like to know the coloring, and for the last, how to get the effect.

I made a short tutorial for the basic use of GIMP's Resynthesiser plug-in. It's a nifty tool very similar to Adobe's content aware fill.

So, here's the deal. I've been making icons with GIMP for a long time now... and I've learned a lot. But I've never been able to find out how to warp text. I'd like to be able to play more with the way text looks, and I think playing with some warping might help.

The things I'd really like to do would be making the text circular, making the text go in a U shape... that sort of thing.

I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask.

I've made four banners for a board RPG which I wanted to animate and turn into one single banner. But as soon as I save it as a .gif it looses quality.

I have no idea where the problem lies. I hope you can help me.
