givera: two things might make it harder for you to get the result you want on this: 1. the tutorial is written for dark text on light backgrounds and yours is light text on dark background. with the methods erisian chose to achieve his result i don't think that will work. so if you want to try this again, pick another text image. 2. the image you chose to wrap the text around isn't a very easy one, it's got too many stark contrast areas. try for example to select just the suit and pull the brightness up a bit, adjust the contrast at the same time so the image doesn't get too "flat". then select just the white collar and pull the brightness down a bit, adjust contrast on that too at the same time. then try the steps again from the beginning and see if you like that any better!

I'm really late for this party! When this tutorial was first posted I knew that I did not have enough experience to attempt, even though I wanted so badly to do it. I finally got the nerve, and made sure I studied every line before I did anything!

These are not the best images. I had trouble finding a good image, both the people and the newspaper! Maybe I asked for too much. My photo manipulation is not the best either but I was able to follow the tutorial without mistakes as far as what to do, just doing it! Your instructions were easy for me to follow.

Thank you, Erisian. Just such a great tutorial. I will do this better, (I hope) each time I do one. I just have to find some good pictures. With so many, it is hard to remove the subjects from the background. Anyway, here are my attempts.

Completely missed this one. I doubt I would have been able to accomplish any of it when I joined Gimp Chat. Thank you Pat for bring it back.

Nice work Pat!

Givera - nice try, never give up.

Excellent Pat. Both are good but your second one really works!

Thank you very much Dalia. I loved this tutorial when I first saw it, but then I did not attempt it as I only had a little experience with GimpChat and how to manipulate photos. I used Gimp a lot before to fix old damaged photos. I did not do any of the other things until I found GimpChat. A very helpful group!

Erisian: Thanks again for the tutorial. I just love it! Instructions were easy to follow. I think on the first one, I did not fully have a handle on how to get the print on the person to match the background paper. Also with the person. Second time around much better. Will do some more to get better at it.

Don't pick a subject with dark hair or sideburns! :lol Thank you so much Erisian. I learned a couple of more things about the free select tool and additions and subtractions.

Thank you Pat. Now I'm obsessed with Rod's post (viewtopic.php?f=4&t=911&hilit=text) and what probably spurred the above. How?!!! It looks amazing.
