Gimp!!

Aw, so cool!! I love Gimp!! It's so much better than paint.net (in my opinion).

It's so complicated...I've been reading some tutorials, but just generally fiddling around with it, and these are two basics images I produced of Arwen...




This one has a background of Arwen in a veil, then an overlay layer of her veiled by Aragorn's tomb. I perhaps should have made the overlay layer a bit more darker, but I found it pretty good.

And this one I just LOVE! I adjusted the colors, sharpened it, and then did this photo affect that made the face way whiter and everything just clearer.

This is how it was originally:

Thanks, Cylleruion! :D
I went on gimp.org, Horsey At Heart, and clicked Download. It's COMPLETELY free. However, if you haven't used any photoediting programs before, I recommend using paint.net as a starter, and then eventually using gimp.
Earwen-the swirly veil thing? In the first picture, I just used two images of Arwen (both from arwen-undomiel.com)...
Hannah-WHOO-HOO!!!!! Thank you SO much for deciding to come!!!!! I'm so happy now!!!! :) :)

Yep! I had to come, I was just like, "WHAT HAVE I DONE?!?!??!?!" lol...:D

BTW, I made this (in my opinion) really cool pic of Arwen and Aragorn, I'll have to send it to you. I used gimp AND paint.net. :D Or I could just upload it, but if I send it to you, then I can show it to you tonight.
