Candle Curl

    I was impressed with the colour/b&w effect of the page curl fx in John Duggan's pic; and so went hunting for a way to do it in GIMP or elsewhere. With a bit of discussion it took me five minutes to figure it today, once I knew the tiniest thing I'd done wrong! Thanks to carrickbeg kate and A.N. Other Flickr friend. :-)

      You did a great job ! The candle light on the B&W background makes a fantastic effect.

      Great work Athena, well done you.

      In my 'page curl' prog, you right-click on the page curl icon and select 'Modify Properties'. This brings up a dialogue box with options to resize and reposition. Dunno if your prog is similiar.

      No, it's a plug-in and more basic, since GIMP is free lol! But I know someone who is a pure wonder at finding out stuff like that, so I'll be asking! Thanks kate!

      Yea like the effect on this one, it’s interesting, a smaller curl might be better though.
      Have to admit when I saw the preview image in my contacts screen It looked like a large Doobie and thought what on earth is she up to now!

      LMAO! What do ye all think of me?!
      Yeah, I would prefer a smaller curl too. Must try to find way of doing that in GIMP. Thanks Wayne!
