Edited by Freya, VisiHow, Eng
You're watching VisiHow. In this tutorial, we're going to show you how to apply a "Ripple" effect to an image in GIMP in Windows 7.
First, click "Filters". It is at the top left-hand side of the window.
Then, move the cursor to "Distorts".
Click "Ripple..." from the menu that appears. A dialogue box will appear with a preview of the image.
You can click and drag the preview or click the scrollbars and arrows to navigate the preview.
If you cannot see the preview image, ensure that the "Preview" box inside the dialogue window is checked.
You can check or uncheck "Antialiasing" and "Retain Tiles" under "Options".
Next, you can click "Horizontal" or "Vertical" in "Orientation".
Then, click "Wrapped", "Smeared", or "Blank" in "Edges".
You can also click "Sawtooth" or "Sine" in "Wave Type" as well.
After that you can specify the intensity by adjusting the "Period" value. You can do that by clicking and dragging the scrollbar or by typing the value into the box on the right.
You can also change the "Amplitude" value like "Period".
Then, change "Phase Shift". It can be done in the same way as "Period" and "Amplitude".
You can click on "Cancel" if you don't want to save anything.
If you are satisfied with the settings, then click "OK". This will apply the changes to the layer.
