Whoah, its been forever since I posted in here...
oh well, I had a thought and I thought I would share it Borders in Gimp
Okay I dont know if any of you GIMP users have ever noticed this, but in GIMP, it is especially hard to make good, smooth borders. The paintbrush tool, with the default brush, makes smooth lines. But as soon as you try a small 1 px brush, it gets all pixely. You could
try the Circle Fuzzy (03), except that random intervals it will turn out pixely or have a small bump. If u want, u could always try the airbrush tool, but idk why in the world you would do that, as it usually has lower opacity.
The third (or fourth if u prefer) option is the pen tool. I dont know how many of you have ever used it, but if you have, you may think Im crazy. If you havent, go ahead and try it. Draw fast at first, and then try sloooooooowing doing.
See why u might think Im crazy? The pen tool in its default mode is inconsistent. Draw fast, you get a thinner line. Draw slow, you get a really big and thick line. How in the world would you get the borders all drawn at the same speed?
Well, luckily, you dont have to. Bring up the pen tool. You should see (on the toolbox window) a lot of different sliders. Theres size, angle, size again, tilt speed, etc. Right now we are going to focus on the second size, and the speed, both of which are under the second header, named Sensitivity
To get the brush to come at the same size, no matter what the speed, you have to adjust the Speed to 0. That tells GIMP to not adjust the size of the pen by what speed your going. Now try drawing a line. Go slow, then fast, then slow. It should all be the same size. If u want, u can change the size (under the sensitivity header) to 0. That makes the pen tool its actual size. Now, when u adjust the size under the Adjustmant
header, it will be its rightful size.
Now to draw your borders, just zoom in a bunch, 400%+, and draw your lines quickly. Otherwise your hand gets all jittery and your borders get lots of little bumps.
I hope that helps for next time your creating borders in GIMP
