You're watching VisiHow. In this tutorial, we're going to show you how to apply a "Waves" effect to an image in GIMP in Windows 7.
First, click "Filters" at the top left-hand side of the window.
Then, move the cursor to "Distorts".
Click "Waves..." from the menu that appears. A dialogue box will appear with a preview of your image. If you cannot see the preview image, ensure that the "Preview" box inside the dialogue window is checked.
You can zoom the preview in and out by clicking the magnifying glass icons.
You can click and drag the preview or click the scrollbars and arrows to navigate the preview.
You can change the "Mode" option by clicking either "Smear" or "Blacken".
You can also check or uncheck "Reflective".
Next, you can change the "Amplitude", "Phase", and "Wavelength" values. You can do that by clicking and dragging the scrollbar or by simply typing the value that you want in the box on the right. The effect adds ripple and spiral effects.
Click "Cancel" to close the window and discard the changes.
If you are satisfied with the settings, then click "OK" to apply them to the image.
