In many works of graphic happen to need to add an "effetto jeans"? It may be for poster, posters, posters. For me so far I've always gone to look for some stock photo, or me the photos are taken by me, but in today's tutorial we see how to get the same effect (nearly photorealistic) with Gimp.

First, create a new image file to work. I will use the standard size "640 x 480". The background will be blu (in my case I used the following hex: #393a6e).

<ol>
   <li>Test text 1</li>
   <li>Text Test 2</li>
</ol>
