Hello everyone! I am new to Gimp and new to graphic editing in general. I am very much a noob but not a noob to computers. I'm a computer consultant for networking so I consider myself techincal but I don't understand anything about graphics editors as of yet. Please be kind!
I have a project that I am trying to do just for fun. I have an airplane that I am trying to make a livery for that I have a picture of for reference. I have a plain white image of the plane with all the rivets and detailing done and what I'm trying to do is just lay down some color over the white but not lose the detailing of the rivets. I saw a demonstration of this with Photoshop using a layer mode called color burn. I notice that Gimp has a couple called Burn and Dodge but I couldn't really get the same type of results I was seeing in the photoshop demo so I figured I'd post here.
I'm basically just trying something simple .. I want to overlay a royal blue color on the top half of the fuselage and not lose the riveting on the plane. I added a transparency layer to the image and played around with some modes etc but I am just not getting the look I want. I almost want to just infuse the color over top of the white on the plane.
I'm not really sure how to do inline images on here like the others have. It looks like I have to host them somewhere on a server and then link to them?
Anyway I'm excited to play around with Gimp and maybe learn a new skill along the way.
PS I will upload the image of what I'm trying to accomplish
