GIMP Tutorial – Fire Effect

or copy the link

*IMPORTANT – CLICK SHOW MORE TO GET THE G’MIC PLUGIN. This video has annotations, so make sure you have them switched on. This tutorial shows how to create a fire effect using the G’MIC plugin for GIMP. You can get G’MIC for free here: If you want the horse and fire image you can download the images here in a zip: – also includes the finished XCF image. When you download G’MIC you need to know what version of Windows you are using and whether it is 32bit or 64bit. If 32bit, there is an installer you can download. If 64bit you need to download the 64bit zip, and put the files contained in the zip into your plug-ins folder in GIMP. If you don’t install the correct version for your operating system, then it won’t work.

Didn’t you see the video description under the video – where it says *IMPORTANT – CLICK SHOW MORE TO GET THE G’MIC PLUGIN?????

Lucas Dias says:

My Gimp 2.8 no have the option “G’MC” !!

Billy Kerr says:

This video has annotations SO SWITCH THEM ON IF YOU WANT TO READ THEM!!!!. Perhaps if you had read the video description where it tells you this, you wouldn’t have posted such a dumb comment.

Billy Kerr says:

There are annotations on the video with full instructions, so switch on your annotations if you want to read them. Also there is a pause button! plus all the files are available for download under the video in the description, including the finished XCF file. Lots of people have managed to complete this tutorial already.

beautiful, but impossible to learn from! Way too fast and just clicking all over the screen without explaining what you were doing, can’t read and watch for the icons at the same time. But like I said, this is gorgeous!

Gerald Pata says:

Excellent demonstration! Thank you for the video and this effect I was able to complete.

Zach Till says:

ok. thank you very much.

Billy Kerr says:

You need to double click the installer for G’MIC – the file you downloaded – then you need to restart GIMP to finish the plug-in installation. The instructions to install G’MIC are on the G’MIC web page. It does definitely work – or I wouldn’t have been able to make this tutorial!!!!

Zach Till says:

i downloaded it, and it’s not showing up in gimp and it won’t install.

Billy Kerr says:

Hi Angel. Yes G’MIC is an addon you have to download and install separately. If you click “SHOW MORE” under the video, the link to get G’MIC is there.
