Posterize Images in the GIMP Application
Edited by Freya, VisiHow, Eng
You're watching VisiHow. In this tutorial, we're going to show you how to posterize an image in GIMP in Windows 7.
You should have the program open and an image ready to use. You can refer to our other tutorials to find out exactly how to do that.
First, click "Colors" on the top-left side of the window.
Then, click "Posterize...". This option has an icon that looks like a rainbow with an arrow inside. A dialogue box will appear. Since the "Preview" box is checked, the changes will be shown on the image.
You can adjust the "Posterize levels" value. You can do it by clicking and dragging the slider or by typing the value manually on the right-hand side. Posterizing is good for the stencil-like effects.
You can click "Reset" to reset the settings to default values.
Alternatively, click "OK" to apply the changes.
