Light Bulb No. 2

    Newer Older

    I was playing around with GIMP today and I found a stock photo of a light bulb at www.sxc.hu/browse.phtml?f=view&id=190520. I tried doing things that are beyond my comprehension in a tutorial and ended up with this—it doesn't look anything like it's supposed to. This is the color version.

    Update 1: This image is scheduled to make an appearance on LivingNow magazine's website (Australia) after April 16, 2009. The story should appear here.

    Update 2: This image was used to accompany the article "A Career in the Electric Field Leads to a Bright Future" on May 2, 2009 on the Top Colleges Blog website.

      The blue cast of light is cool.

      Might not look like the tutorial, but stuff was learned, no? Bravo to you for trying. I've found my techniques and rarely stray from them now. I must shake things up, I think.

      This bulb definitely looks like it's glowing, however, and I like the color.

      cptdrinian — Thank you.

      Jibby! — It was educational. It's amazing how many gizmos there are to play with in Photoshop, GIMP, and the like.

      Living Now — That's fine. All I ask is to be credited for the image. It's an ego thing . . . ;-)
