This GIMP (GNU) tutorial demonstrates how to create a Soft and Dreamy Sky Avatar. To work along, you are welcome to download the Start Image I am working with HereUnzip the file and open the image onto GIMP’s workspace.

You can quickly Undo a step at any time by pressing Ctrl then Z. Alternatively, click a previous Undo History snapshot - Windows then Dockable Dialogues then click Undo History. In addition, to Zoom in (or Zoom out) of your image; from the top menu, choose View then select a Zoom Tool from the subsequent drop-down list.

Resize Images
Launch GIMP & Organise Its Workspace & Palettes

Open your choice of Start Image onto GIMP’s workspace - File then Open - Ctrl then O.

Ensure the Layers and the Undo History Palettes are visible, and then drag them into position over your workspace - (Windows then Dockable Dialogues - then click Layers and Undo History).

Now, to resize your image: from the top menu, choose Image and then choose Scale Image. From the subsequent Scale Image dialogue box, first clear, and then enter the following Width and Height settings, (or choose your own dimensions), and then click Scale.

Sharpen Tip
After resizing an image, it’s generally considered to be good practise to Sharpen your image afterwards - as demonstrated in my
Sharpen Images Tutorial Here.
(Top menu, then Filters then Enhance).

From the top menu, choose Filters and then choose Blur and then choose Motion Blur. And from the subsequent Motion Blur dialogue box, enter the following Radial settings, or experiment, and then click OK.


Now, from the top menu, choose Colours then choose Hue-Saturaton. And from the subsequent Hue-Saturaton dialogue box, drag the Saturation Slider slightly to the right, and then click OK. This enriches your image’s colours.


Congratulations, your Soft and Dreamy Sky Avatar is complete,
and it is ready to optimise and save.
