For some time, there is fashion to print the so-called "photobooks", of books in carta lucida, hardcover and inside enclose our digital photos printed directly on the pages. Usually the company that allows printing of your book also releases graphic software very basic with which apply some effects all photo (the effects are very simple, ranging from clipart the feints adhesive tape). This technique may be in fact very useful in prints.

The initiative of the "Photobook" is fun, and may like, but the possibility of the effects made available are scarce. In today's tutorial we see how add a border to dots (type "newspaper" a few years ago) to a photo with Gimp. This is also a fundamental effect, but as we begin to see how these resources are created graphic.

First open an image that lends. In this tutorial I will use a landscape, despite the portraits lend themselves more.
