The machine I am doing this on is a Sun box using CDE. I use xv to set the desktop wallpaper.
I want to make an addition to the wallpaper I created. Specifically, I want to take a photographic image and incorporate it into the wallpaper. That is easy enough, just add a layer to my xcf file with the photo in it, but it is the particular visual effect I want that has me lost.
The effect I want is that of hammered out metal. You may have seen artistic works made of hammered out copper sheeting. That is the effect I want (but using the color of my wallpaper) which visually gives you a "hammered out 3 dimensional" view of the photograph.

Is the same as right clicking on the mouse to change the image?

Subject: [Gimp-user] mimicking gnome desktop feature
The gnome desktop background config widget lets you (used to let you? I don't see it in my gnome control center any more) take an image and blend it into your background with a "hammered out" look. Sorry, I cannot explain it better.
I want to mimic that effect with the gimp. I have a desktop background and I would like to blend a photo into the background. The idea is for the photo to have that hammered out (like an image made of hammered out copper) look using the existing background color.
