GIMP tricks: Snooker ball as a pseudo 3d object

Filed under
GIMP
HowTos

I don’t really remember when and where, but I have read once about that GIMP isn’t suitable to create pseudo 3D graphics. Nothing more fallible. I will try to show you that it’s wrong.

Enough! Run the GIMP and let’s start!

1. Create a new transparent image 300×300 px in size.

2. Create a new layer with a black background and name it “ball”.

3. Create a new transparent layer and name it “number”.

4. On the layer “number” make a circle with a 120 px diameter by “Select elliptical regions” tool in the center of the image. The simplest way of doing it is to set a fixed size: width and height to 120 px. Move the cursor to the point (90,90) and select the area with the fixed-size circle selection.
