What?! Oh come on, you mean to tell me that you didn’t see me sneaking that line in somewhere the first chance I got?
You people give me way too much credit.
At the end of my dice snapping frenzy I got to playing with the pictures in Gimp, particularly this one:
I’d intended to make the picture black and white to see if it looked pretty, but ended up playing with the ‘Colour Levels’ widget. Now I’m sure there is a technical explanation for what the widget does, but to my eyes it makes dark areas darker, bright areas brighter and the bit in the middle brighter or darker as required. Hold on, a random website says this:
‘The Level tool provides features similar to the Histogram tool but can also change the intensity range of the active layer or selection’
I ended up with this:
Now I like this. I think the background feels richer the colours a little more intense.
It’s still not black and white though.
So, out of desperation (where is the magic make my button black and white), I used Google and I ended up finding a tutorial to help me do this:
Now I really like this.
OK, the edging around the dice (OK die you pedant. No, not as in cease to live more as in singular of dice) isn’t as neat as it could b, but I was up against it time wise and this was less than 10 minutes work all in.
I could pretend like I spent hours working all this out in Gimp, or reproduce the tutorial and claim kudos for something I didn’t do, but I’m not into that (and I might get caught), so here it is….
So, whatcha think?
