Broken Paintbrush: Basic Photo Editing with GIMP

Broken Paintbrush: Basic Photo Editing with GimpJoe did a great tutorial on editing your images with GIMP, which is free photo editing software. This is the one area that I feel most bloggers need help with, post editing of images prior to putting them up on their blog/Facebook/whatever. It really makes a HUGE difference, and Joe walks you through it in this tutorial.

Wargaming Tradecraft - Painting White & YellowDave does really great tutorials, it’s kind of his thing, and this one is no exception. If you ever paint white or yellow, then definitely check out Dave’s tips on working with those colors. In fact, the tips are universally useful regardless of the colors you commonly paint with. He also did a great short video showing exactly how he does it.

That White Scar looks amazing and so simple to do. Wish I had seen this before starting my army!

Thanks, Thor. You honor me again. I have another one to do and it’s even more intimidating knowing how much work went into this, but I do love that model now. It grows on you.

Cheers Thor! I’m glad you liked the photo editing post, it was something that I see being skipped over way too often. Good picks on the other posts as well :-)


Great selection Thor! Dave’s simple tip about how to thin your paint is a life saver, I have always struggled with how to do this without paint drying out on the pastel or clogging my brush up. And after reading Joe’s photo editng tips, I will never use auto-fix on Photoshop again :D
