 Post subject: Tutorials: Creating TokenTool Overlays in PSP and GIMP
PostPosted: Sun Sep 19, 2010 7:32 am 
I started looking at how to create token overlays in my two preferred graphics apps, Paint Shop Pro and the GIMP. To be honest the existing tutorials didn't really hit the mark for me (the PSP trick using the magnifying glass is very clever, but limited in what it can produce), so I've played around a bit and come up with a solid process for each app and thrown a couple of tutorials together. Hope someone finds them useful.

(I've maybe got one more tute in the pipeline, using DAZ Studio to create a true 3D ring effect.)

Hey, that's really cool DrV! I'm making this a Sticky to help the new folks that come along and want to create their own...

Thanks for writing this up!

For future-proofing, it would be nice if the PDFs were attachments to the post instead of links offsite.
