Tutorial: stained effect / burned with Gimp

The tutorial for today came a little 'by chance and a little' because I was trying another effect to apply to your photo. The final effect will be the staining of the picture (stains confused with burn marks) I think responding to reality, but let you judge users.

First open a photo you might pay at work. We'll turn it in a few easy steps.

Now we will create a new level, on which will be generated stains. Click on "Create New Layer" in tab levels leaving basic settings. Now we go on "Filters" - "Render" - "Clouds" - "Solid Noise", and also in this case let the values ​​already set.

We now give a touch of color (then that will be reflected on the original picture) render to our newly created. We select the gradient "Golden" and go on "Colors" - "Map" - "Gradient Map".

At this point there is nothing left to do but change the mode the layer stacking, changing the "Usual" a "Darken only". We can also change the opacity the level at 80% to give antiflatulent less invasive.

The work could be done here, but for the most demanding we "disturb" the photo by using the special filter. Create a new layer with the same procedure as before, then we go on "Filters" - "Disorder" - "Chance", we give the level Grayscale with the tool "Colors" - "Desaturation" (leaving the values ​​already set), sfochiamo disorder with "Filters" - "Blur" - "Gaussian" by setting "1px" radius and reduce the opacity to the 30%.
