Creating Image Borders

Post#1 by FlutteringBy » 13 Apr 2019, 01:48


Hello everybody,

And another newbie question from me... :D ...

When I put a border around an image, I would like to give the border some height....as in this example:

How would I get the round/height effect on a flat border?

Many Thanks,

Hi FlutteringBy - hope I've understood your request correctly. There are a number of ways to achieve those raised/rounded features on a flat border, such as Gaussian blur on a selection, Bevel Reflect Logo filter or the Chisel or Carve filter ... like these examples below. If you want more info/details just ask.

Or of course, you can make your own frames/borders ...

Very nice to use scripts, but you should learn the basics first. Nothing more basic than bump-mapping. For a frame, some possibilities.

Image

The mask is offset in the screenshot(s) so you can see it. Normally coincides with the layer being bump-mapped. One thing to note, bump-mapping is a destructive process, work on a layer copy if you need to keep the original.

Thank you both, OMG & rich2005....you've given me lots to think about on this snowy morning...

OMG, using scripts didn't even cross my mind as I was focused on making my own border, so thanks for the suggestion...something more to play with... :D ...as if I'm not already spending too much time with gimp.... :lol: ...

rich2005, bump-mapping is a whole new concept to me, so I'm glad you mentioned it...I just did a text bump map tut that Pat625 had put together & got the desired results but I can see there's a lot more reading that needs to be done...I've snagged your examples to keep for future reference...

Yes, I do like to make my own frames & borders, that's a gorgeous "moulding_tasmanian_oak" frame you've created OMG... :thumbsup:

Many Thanks,
FlutteringBy
