First, though I do like my previous efforts, they did require the voronoi stipple program. This tut does not, so it's all GIMP/G'MIC. :gimp

ref: http://www.fontplay.com/freephotos/sixt ... 06-016.jpg

First choose a target. Then right click on the layer dialoge and add alpha Channel (this is important). Now run GIMP's Mosaic filter with the following settings:

Dup this result and on the base layer, run G'MIC's Dilation preset with the following settings:

On the top layer Gaussean blur with the default 5 setting and merge all layers. Pretty much we are done. Now for the grout step. Choose a grainy texture and then create a new base layer with that texture. Then, on the base layer, run bumpmap with default settings as shown below:

Now my final result, I have to admit that I did some additional tweaking; this is the nuance that I can't really outline, but it's to my taste; the above pretty much is good enough for most. :)

Pretty easy to follow...just guessed at the size, went with 800 pix wide, and added some Photocomix colors in G'mic to boost colors.

Great tut Lyle, thanks. The last image with Jam Spread looks almost like bubblewrap.
