Gimp & empty geometric shape creation
March 6, 2013Posted by on
It is widely believed that Gimp isn’t good to create geometric shapes.
That’s not true!
Gimp is a really good image editor and creator, and is easy to use.
To create an empty rectangle, choose the rectangular selection from instruments menu
Create a rectangular selection on the image. (you know how… i hope! -.-’)
Selection menu -> editor selection
A new window will pop up:
Another window will pop up:
In “line thickness” field you can choose, or write, the thickness of your edge (8,0 in the image), and then choose ok!
that’s the result!
Obviously you can do the same thing with the oval selection or with magic pen too!
Furthermore, you can work with selections, leaving the “editor selection popup” opened, it’ll refresh itself anytime that you create or select a selection.
don’t forget to report english errors ^^
