Meet the GIMP #27: Sketching

It’s again time for a video by Joseph. He has explored a way to let photographies look like sketches. I then try to explain what’s happening behind the scenes and present one of the images of the photogroup at

Joseph used music from ccmixter (”Ana (hisboyelroy_s_smooth_dub)” by hisboyelroy) during his video.

Do you like music under the voice? Shall I do that too? Write me a mail or comment here!

If you want to download Joseph’s file, go to the download page.
