In this GIMP 2.10.2 Photo Editing Tutorial, I’ll show you how to create portrait brush effects that provide a creative border around your photo! This unique effect makes it appear as if your photo was painted on a canvas, and adds color to your compositions. I also show you how to add text underneath the image.

Plus, I show you the process for downloading Photoshop brushes and installing them into GIMP.

This GIMP photo manipulation tutorial is great for all skill levels. Though the technique looks difficult, it is fairly easy to accomplish and, as you can see, produces great results!
