I use an option called create mask from source by source luminance, and i invert the mask data.

I think in your last method, you only needed to invert the mask data.

Nope. Still doesn't work. Looks all sorts of funny, but I can't get the right combination.

EDIT: Just saw your edit. Thanks for the help. Just adding it to my logo. In the future, I'll make sure to stick to one single graphics editing tool and to use layers at all times :)


EDIT2: Just pieced it all together



Good work lennaert :)

I think I'm going to try and scale this to credit card measures. Getting a new CC next month and still hadn't decided on the custom image. Until now, that is.Blinx1232014-01-03 21:22:01

The only two tools I ever felt comfortable with were Twisted Brush (it has this awesome filling mechanic where you can actually decide the radius of the filling by holding the mousebutton) and Corel Draw 11.

Twisted Brush did, unfortunately, not work well with this image and I don't know where I left my Corel Draw serial.

Anyways. Just found my original image. Turns out, it was way bigger (the one on here was just a Twitter avatar, it seems) and I managed to keep the layers somewhat seperate.

When I opened the file in GIMP, it was masked pretty well and there were only a few parts (the snout, the tail and some of the a's and e's) I had to fill in manually.

The letters look weird when I carve them on a gray background, so I'll still have to manually add them.

Getting one's logo onto a credit card is a huge PITA, btw. The logo on here has just the right size but easily blurs out and the original one is sharp but way too big. Blinx1232014-01-04 00:31:01

hehe, with some tools you find an approach or have ease of use you cant with others :)

great you found the original, you probably need to test various resizer methods to find the one right to make it a decent small size.

while working I tend to work with a 200% model and when done resize it to 50%, smooths out everything nicely in most cases for me :)
