We have got a homework assignment in gimp: Make a poster.
Tha poster should be targeting a chosen group of people. I decided to work with the 1950’s/rockabilly, and I wonted to make a poster for the convention for celebrate the pin-up girl!
First i started with a BW photo of a pin-up girl. I used the magic wand and removed the background.
Than I used the grading tool and made a fading background, from orange to white. I also enlarged the pin-up girl using the scale tool.
Now it was time for informational text, so the viewer would understand the event and the purpose of the poster. For lack of font in gimp, I used Word to create the headline: Pin-Up Convention.
I than opened it in Gimp, and removed the background. I changed the colors and added additional informational texts to the poster.
The Pin-Up Convention:
