Melt Me GIMP Animation by fence-post Melt Me GIMP Animation by fence-post
In this tutorial, I'll show you how to create a cool looking "melting animation" using GIMP.

The tutorial is in html format. So, just download the zip file to a convenient location, like your desktop. Double-click the zip file and move the html file and the "files" folder to your desktop (the files folder and html file must be in the same location for the images to show up.) Double-click the html file and the tutorial will open.

Although nothing is required for you to download and use this tutorial, giving me a fave would be a simple way to show your thanks. Just click the :+fav: Add to Favorites link on the left side of the page, near the top. You don't even have to give me comments. Come on, people, show a little bit of love for someone who takes the time and effort to do the hard work of preparing these tutorials for your enjoyment and learning.

Enjoy!

Try this instead: [link]

Just download the script and place it in your GIMP scripts folder, open up the image you want to melt, and run the script. It will take care of the rest!

hmm... sorry to bother you, but the images in the tutorial aren't showing up. :( do you have any ideas on how to fix that?
Reply
:iconfence-post:
fence-post Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2008
No problem. There should be an "images" folder within the zip file. Make sure that you save that folder and all the images contained within it, to the same place you saved the html file. For example, save both the images folder/html page to your desktop, then double-click on the html file and you *should* be able to see them. Let me know if you have any trouble. After you understand the concepts, you might want to check out this script which does everything automatically for you: [link] But, I do think it's a good idea to work through it manually first so you learn some new techniques.

Cheers!

Glad you like it! I also have a script for it here: [link] You just open up the image you want to "melt", resize it accordingly, and run the script. The script handles everything.

Well, with just a little bit of practice, you'll be able to work as fast as you want or need to. So, don't think of it as being sad.

You never fail to make amazing tutorials, Fence! You just inspired a few new avatars for my website with this (most involving phrases like "I melt when you look at me that way" :P ). :D

How the heck are you, Angie?! Been a long time. Thanks for the comments and glad you found the tutorial useful. Make sure you show me your finished product. We miss you at the dome. You came in like a whirlwind and were gone just as fast.

Take care.

Lol, wow, you remember me? I didn't think you would, considering how long it's been. :P

Yeah, I kind of got immersed in my websites and school and music and stuff, so I ended up having to abandon a few of my internet communities (it was a choice between that and sleep :P ), including the GIMP-related ones. I've actually been considering coming back lately; maybe I will if I think of some good tutorials or anything I want to contribute. *nods* :)

Oh, and here's a simple little banner I made from this tutorial earlier:
