Edited by Freya, VisiHow, Eng
You're watching VisiHow. In this tutorial, we're going to show you how to apply a blinds filter to an image in GIMP in Windows 7.
First, click "Filters" in the horizontal menu at the top of the window.
Then, move the cursor to "Distorts".
In the expanded menu that appears, click "Blinds...". It should be near the top of this list, since the list is in alphabetical order. A dialogue box will appear that should have a preview of your image.
If you cannot see the preview, check the "Preview" box. The "Preview" box is located just beneath the preview area.
You can click either "Vertical" and "Horizontal" in the "Orientation" section.
You can also check "Transparent" if you want the background to be transparent. This requires an alpha channel in the selected layer.
Next, you can adjust the "Displacement" and "Number of segments" values. You can do it by clicking or clicking and dragging their scrollbars. You can also type values into the text boxes or click the up and down arrows to make adjustments.
Click "Cancel" if you do not want to make any changes to your image.
Alternatively, if you're satisfied with your changes, click "OK" to apply them to the image.
