Dezhen Der Jen Inspired Style Using GIMP 2.8
Operating System: Windows 7

I always adore the Dezhen looks! I love them because they seem to be watercolor paintings with soft strokes. Really beautiful and detailed! Now am going to try using GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation Program) creating a photo to have a Dezhen look. I created it using GIMP 2.8 on Windows, as some of my friends ask me whether I could write a tutorial using Windows and not Linux. Okayyy…. Going to show it. I hope you like this GIMP Tutorial 😀
1. Open GIMP 2.8
2. Open the image. File – Open – Choose File – .jpg file
3. Here is the look after you open a .jpg/.jpeg file

4. Duplicate layer

5. Filters – Artistic – Cartoon

6. Set the Mask radius to 2.00 and Percent black 0.000

7. Duplicate layer
8. Filters – Artistic – Softglow
9. Set the Glow radius to 6.00, Brightness 0.40 and Sharpness to 1.00

10. Duplicate Layer
11. Filters – Blur – Selective Gaussian Blur

12. Set the Blur radius to 5.00 and Max.delta: 50

13. Now you are done! Voila~~ Looks like a cartoon right? 😀 good luck, happy GIMP-ing for all Windows users who loves Free and Open Source Softwares!!!! 😀

Photos taken from:
candylens.com and the Dezhen’s photo was given from my friend 😀

FOSS regards,
