Making Photographs Black & White
Black and White images have been neglected ever since the introduction of colour into film photography, due to the fact that colour is best and what we see (colour) is the true beauty of a scene/object. As this is the case now, whenever black and white images are created it is perceived as a kind of artistic aesthetic that the photographer has wanted to achieve and considering colour is the norm now, this photograph is viewed in a different light and more of an artists creation rather than the representative. So, I hope to get you more creative in experimenting with your photographs with these easy Black and White conversion processes!

Turning a Photograph into a Polka Dot Image
This a very quick simple tutorial and a bit of fun! I have made a range of different sizes – 50px, 75px, 100px, 150px patterns so you can easily apply the effect in seconds. I suggest you try some masking of layers as well to experiment with design :) .
How to make a Hockney style Photograph
David Hockney is known for his unusual panoramas that are made up of differently scaled and angled photos. To produce the 'Hockney' effect it is best done with multiple photographs that can be arranged later, but you can have a single photograph that you'd like to make into a multiple imaged panorama - with the use of GIMP!
Making Light Leaks on Photographs
Light Leaks are a product of film in the camera being exposed due to a hole/gap in the cameras body letting in light. It is sometimes used aesthetically in photographs creating a sense of vividness or soft blurs of colour - usually red. In this tutorial I'll show you how to create these light leaks in the GIMP!

A really simple concept and easy to achieve, however the results are great - Colour Gradient Match Photos. This technique can be useful for creating a mood in a photograph taken from another image. This is more of a quick tip intended to help achieve certain effects and drive development.
How to make see-through text to image in GIMP
A really simple little trick to adding normal text to an image and making it look interesting! This technique can be used for nearly any photograph, however it is a lot easier to see the text with less detailed and contrasty photographs.
How to make an Obama HOPE Poster
There are a few tutorials for this in Photoshop and Illustrator, but I haven't found any for the GIMP, so I attempted it myself! It is a fairly simple method and easily done with great results!
Digital Blending - Dynamic Range
When wanting to combine two or more photographs for a higher dynamic range (HDR) or correcting an overexposed photograph, I mostly use programs like Photomatix, however it is sometimes too difficult or frustrating fiddling with the settings for minutes getting nowhere. So, there is an easier way and in certain cases much better than an HDR especially if you want to avoid those really surreal photographs - Digital Blending is the way to go, you can be much more selective with your increases/decreases in dynamic range and get more realistic results.
