looks like a view out of the window to me (its night in germany already) :)Any gfx wizards out there that want to support the GIMP manual?? Thats you chance!i have successfully used the distress selection script-fu to make the edges of screenshots look like torn paper. the sawtooth that you describe might be easier to achieve by making a path: . . . . . . . .
i don't know if those points demonstrate what i am trying to say about using the pathtool, but the pathtool should be able to do to a gimp image what i am unable to show via email, and that is to connect those points with straight lines. that can be turned into two different things. a selection by which to make your image smaller with and the path can be exported to a simple SVG file and shared among all doc writers who need the same effect.
I know I could spend some time to try to achieve something by myself, but since there are so many people in here that know how to be creative, would I like to concentrate on writing manual and making screenshots. So if any of you could just make an .xcf with one long border in it as layer mask?
the svg can be transformed using all of the gimp's transformation toolsand will fit any gimp image with only a little bit of work. carol
