Default How to create "sparkles" with Gimp!

Hey everyone, in this guide, i'm going to show you how to make sparkles on pictures with Gimp! It's really easy, and it looks great on pitures.

Step 1:

Have your picture/text open and ready to shine XD
Click the image to open in full size.

Step 2:

To make the sparkle, you'll need a special brush created by yourself.

open the brush dialog(Window / Dockable Dialogs / Brushes) or press SHIFT+CTRL+B.

Step 3:

Click the image to open in full size.
click new brush (circled on picture) at the bottom of the dialog.Name it Glitter.

Click the image to open in full size.
in shape, use the third option (the one shaped like a diamond)

radius is the size of the sparkle, so set it however you want. i'm using 75.0, because i don't want it to be too big or too small.

spacing is not really important because we are only using one sparkle at a time.

Step 4:

Choose the paintbrush tool (the glitter brush should be active automatically and if it's not, select it from your brushes dialog.

Create a new transparent layer, and start glittering! get creative with the sizes of the brush, the colors, anything you want (:

Here's my result:

Click the image to open in full size.

Remember: don't use too much of the glitter or it'll just look weird, like this picture i made XD and save as a png!

Thanks for reading and post your results!
