G'mic for Krita - Step by Step tutorial on how to use this amazing FREE image manipulation plugin

Hello everyone. We continue our journey of image manipulation.

Today, everything revolves around the free plugin G’mic.

I’ll show you around the plugin and we’ll try it out with a step-by-step demonstration. We will turn an ordinary photograph into an old-fashioned postcard.

You are going to be amazed by this little plugin. It is powerful and fun to use. If you really love using it and happen to have a few dollars, euros, or pounds extra in your pocket, please consider helping these amazing people who created the plugin to support their efforts. They are doing such a great job of keeping it updated. I am not sponsored by Krita, neither by G’mic… as you already know. I just like to spread the good words and help them the best I can. So, thank you in advance for helping either of them (Krita and/or G’mic). They deserve all our love and respect.

Thank you! I can’t wait to watch this one. I don’t know anything at all about G’mic.

You are so welcome. G’Mic added a comment under the video in Youtube’s comment area. They said the following: Note that G’MIC will be directly integrated into Krita after Krita 5 release (so not released as an external plug-in anymore). Hopefully, this will fix a few issues the current plug-in has with Krita (like no MacOS version, support of Krita blending modes and so on…)…

So exciting. I hope you like using it. Have fun!!!
