Here we are talking about graphic. In today's tutorial we see how to apply a special effect (spherical) One ad logo already round in a simple way.
Christmas is coming, and approach also new tutorials ready for some time, but that require some subtleties and adjustments. By the time I post a tutorial on three dimensions, I used this technique to create such Christmas baubles in a birthday card.
The logo available has been created in two minutes flat, do not expect fireworks. Below the logo and the final result.
Let's do a quick analysis: the final result presents a’ombra sul retro, a’shading in the lower right and a light point in the upper left.
Once opened our round logo we must pay attention to dimensions. Select with the instrument “rectangular selection” () only circle that contains the logo, including outer edges, in this way.
Now glue the selection in a new image and look the size. “Ctrl + C” and “Ctrl + Shift + In“. The dimensions are shown in Gimp in the window title.
Being a perfect circle height and width of the polygon that contains it must be identical: a square. At this point we create a new image the size of which must correspond exactly to the double or more those now. In my case (268 x 2) 536px.
Now we are ready to create our own sphere. On we go on new image “Filters” – “Map” – “Map Object“, select “Sphere” and we put a flag its “Transparent Background“.
Now that we have our sphere the glue above the original logo. “Ctrl + C“, reopen the original logo “Ctrl + In“.
Pasting the sphere is said to be superimposed in a perfect way. First of all we make the layer you just pasted a new level clicking on the button in the tab levels ““, then will move the level superimposing the logo. The logo no longer have to see in this passage.
At this point we go on “Colors” – “Staining for alpha” and select the white. The color does nothing to Alpha remove the tints the color shown by picture.
We set the opacity of the level at’80% and you're done.
For those wishing to accentuate the idea of the three dimensions of the board add a shadow (as in the preview to top) behind the logo.
