Partially desaturated image in Gimp


Hahaa, more Gimping going on here. I decided to try to make a partially desaturated image and it wasn’t hard at all. After learning how to make a blur frame and a vignette effect in Gimp, this was a piece of cake.

Following the same basic steps – duplicate image, add layer mask, manipulate lower layer, delete from layer mask – this image was done in about 10-15 minutes. The only thing taking time was the manual paintbrushing at the edges of the mushroom.

I’m starting to like Gimp more and more… Let’s see what else I come up with in the future.
