Placing yourself around the world in GIMP

Post#1 by trandoductin » 08 Oct 2016, 17:50


In this simple tutorial, we'll put an image of a person(you) in any place around the world (like a famous landmark).
I'll be using an image of me and a scaled down image of The Great Wall of China
1. Open image of your a person (you) in GIMP (menu "File", then "Open", then browse to image and select image, then click "Open").

4. Click around (outline) of the person, returning to the first point to close the shape up. While clicking points, you can zoom-in/out by holding Ctrl key and scroll your mouse to place the points more accurately. If you placed the point in the wrong place you can just hover over a point, a circle will show up and you can drag this point to the right place and then continue until you close up the shape you want.

5. Ctrl-C to copy the selected shape. Click on famous landmark image, then Ctrl-V to Paste it in there as a floating selection.

9. Click and drag a corner to scale up/down. Hold Ctrl key (on Windows) while dragging to keep aspect ratio (as to not make the person look shortened/lengthened).

13. Now, we can save the result as .xcf file (menu "File", then "Save As...") to work with later. Or we can export (menu "File", then "Export As...") result as an image file (a .png or .jpg).

Here's a showcase of what we've successfully created. We took an image of a person (you) and placed them anywhere (in this case The Great Wall of China) around the world.
