Introduction: How to Add Crack's Etc to Pic's With GIMP


Step 1: What You Need

click here to get >GIMP<
you can use other programs
but gimp is the one we will be using.

bliss wallpaper or any one you want can be found in 
C:\WINDOWS\Web\Wallpaper

an image with a crack & solid background

patience

& post a comment please

Step 2: Lets Get Too Buissness

Open bliss in gimp and add picture 'two' (or 'three' for you lazy/ uncool people) by clicking file, open, select  the picture and drag it into the layers window; do not click open. if you do not know how to get to layers window  short cut combo (ctrl L). Bliss should be covered up by your broken glass image this is normal.

Step 3: Moving On

This is what you should see. Now use the (select by color) tool. see second image
& click on the black / green & then delete all the black / green

Step 4: Now for the Text

Now select the fuzzy select tool again see second image and click on any thing you want to delete, then press (delete).
use the eraser for the remainder & be careful, the fuzzy select tool will delete things you will
want to keep. Go slow. By the end of this instructable you should be accustomed to the (ctrl z) shortcut
combo.

  post a comment please!


P.S.
good luck!

Step 5: I Just Put This Picture Up Because I Was Tiard of Bliss

Now, back to business. Duplicate the top layer. Change the modes for each layer until your happy. I have mine set to: value at 45.1 & screen at 72.9  (see second image)

please leave a comment!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
& feel free to post your pic's post

  Now you are done!

You can set the pic as wallpaper, hide the cursor, and end explorer to pull a cracked screen prank.

ikoda (author)2008-10-01

Okay. After 1 hours work I've finally finished it. I kinda like having a darker crack. Having a bright one looked weird. ;D

Your welcome. Thanks for sharing this Instructable. Well, I used the original photo and then the premade after. But the final copy is the premade one..

That looks pretty freaking sweet

That's pretty cool, I like ikoda's too. I was wondering if you could make it look like the inside of a monitor where the hole is. It would add some coll effect if it looked like there was an actual hole in the screen. Maybe put some sparking wires or something and make them animated, if that's possible. Would make a cool wallpaper or screen saver. I would try, but I have zero skill in editing photos. Thanks.
