You're watching VisiHow. In this tutorial, we're going to show you how to add the "RGB Noise" effect to an image in GIMP in Windows 7.
First, click "Filters". It's in the horizontal menu at the top of the window.
Move the cursor to "Noise" in the menu.
In the expanded menu that appears, click "RGB Noise...". "RGB Noise" adds the colors red, green, and blue to the image. This effect may be interesting if you want your image to have an analog or a retro look. A dialogue box will appear with an image preview.
You can click and drag the preview or click the scrollbars and arrows to navigate throughout the preview.
If you cannot see the preview, ensure that the "Preview" box in the dialogue window is checked.
You can check or uncheck "Correlated noise" and "Independent RGB". Experiment with these settings to determine your preference. For this tutorial, let's leave the default setting, which is checked "Independent RGB".
Next, you can emphasize different colors by clicking and dragging the scrollers next to "Red", "Green", and "Blue".
You can also change the color settings by typing values into the boxes or by clicking the up and down arrows.
Click "Cancel" if you do not wish to make any changes to the image. If you are satisfied with the changes, click "OK" to apply them to the image. A green bar will appear across the bottom of the screen to show that the changes are being applied.
