What I had to do:
“Color splash is a technique to emphasize details- you remove all color from a photo, and then restore original color to a single object.”
The original picture:
The photo after being edited:
- Open the photo using GIMP
- Duplicated the image (Image -> Duplicate)
- Added a Alpha channel for the layer.
- Using the eraser tool with the transparency option ,erased the part of the flower I wanted in order to bring back its original color.
I got the inspiration of coloring just one flower from a picture I had seen where someone had colored just one sunflower in a sunflower field. It took me sometime(alot of time) to figure out how to do this in GIMP. Google still remains as the savior!
This is a picture of a flower vase at home clicked by my uncle and I happened to see it! It was a nice image so thought I’d use it for this assignment-saves time nah! 😉
