Double Fun!

"Virgin's Yellow Room" and "Under the Aqua Sea"
Double Exposures with my photos, using Gimp 2.6

I've been getting used to using Gimp, the open source image software program. For years, I loved Photoshop, but I had a computer crash so decided to venture to something new. Something I could, ahem, afford.

These two images are my celebration of learning how to repeat the process of "double exposures" that I had enjoyed doing so much in Photoshop but didn't believe existed in Gimp. An afternoon dedicated to play ("What does this do, I wonder, hm?") revealed the missing holy grail!

Say, this ties in nicely with this week's current discussion"Thinking Outside the Toolbox" at Creative Roundtable!

Hey, I hadn't thought of it, but double exposure might work great for some of the 2 Things Challenge entries.
I've only got Elements, but I might have to see if I can do something with it.

Wow, these are gorgeous! You always surprise me, in a nice way, with your vision. I'm so glad I know you!

Very nice, Debi. I must look into this Gimp.
