Drawing Simple Figures – Gujarati
Welcome to the tutorial of Meet The GIMP. My name is Rolf steinort and I am recording this is Bremen, Northen Germany. Lets start the tutorial with an e-mail which i got. I got an email by David Vansalan and he asked me how to draw simple figures with geometrics with GIMP. So lets first start with the most easy way i.e with the straight line. A straight line can be difficult to draw but if you make a point here and press the shift key and make another point, you can easily draw a straight line. So these are straight lines. Press Ctrl + Z to Undo. A square is a bit more complicated. Just go to tool box and select the rectangle tool. And keep the aspect ratio as 3 by 3. So it should be a square. Now I have a square selection so go to Edit, Stroke Selection. I can do some changes here. I can fix the line width or I can use the paint tool and I select paint brush in paint tool and click on stroke. And here you have your square. If I want to fill this square, its easy, just go here to my colour palet and drag the black colour into the square. The same can be done with the ellipse selection. I just can select ellipse and go to Edit and select Stroke Selection. For more complicated figures select Path Tool. I can create a path by making points and when I click on the last point, my path is finished. Then I can go here to Edit and start to modify these handles the way you want to. You can practice it and understand. Its very easy. The last thing i want to do is stroke the path. And I get the same options here and when i click on stroke, I have a perfect line. Its not a straight line but its perfect line. And this was it for this week.
