Transparent Window Film Result

Post#1 by skinnyhouse » 04 Dec 2018, 16:33


At last I managed to use Gimp to produce something that I could actually use (not including photo albums and digital images) for the house. We needed a solution to give us a little more privacy for a hall window - without replacing the window itself so I used Gimp to create a stained glass type panel and sent it off to an online manufacturer of window film. Here is the result - with very weak winter sunlight working its magic.

This was the design that I sent away to be printed:

The panel was made by amalgamating two free to use templates which were converted to paths in Inkscape and then added to Gimp to be stroked and filled.
The outer panel...

and the outcome before applying the Shine filter to enhance the leaded look.

The areas were filled with colour using the gradient fill tool:

I added a frosted glass image below the glass and set the image mode of the glass to LCh Color to achieve the final result.

Fantastic result skinnyhouse, that's a really neat idea and you've got a lovely window to be proud of.

Don’t be afraid to start over. It’s a new chance to rebuild what you want.

That's cool that you turned GIMP project into something in the real world.
I don't have a window that we can change but if I did I'd probably get the manufacturer to print some stain glass design based on Catholic church Jesus stained glass of some sort.

Thanks Tim: I was pleased with the film they sent - easy to apply.
There are loads of free templates for both decorative and sacred images out there.
