Effects tutorials in Gimp

Sun Ray Effect

Although this is a very simple straight forward effect i though it would be good for people getting familiar with gimp to try something not too hard alternatively you can use photoshop brushes that work in gimp to create the effect. I call this effect "sun Ray" its pretty common with so called web 2.0 websites these days.

Glow Effect

In this tutorial I will make use of different overlaid layers mixed with radial gradient tool to achieve and awesome light effect, started off as a experiment turned out to be a cool effect and worth a tutorial :)
