How to I create this effect: Acid/Water Damage to Photo
Not sure if I should be posting this to Beginner or if I should be posting this in tutorial (new to forum).

I would like to create an effect like the one in this photo:
Unfortunately the attach image button isnt working (can someone explain why?) so i attached the image.

I found a tutorial which seems to be similar but not exactly the same. http://www.squaregear.net/gimptips/water.shtml

My best guess is that is it some sort of smudging/blurring effect -It looks like oil in water- and wondering if someone has tried this before


Attached File(s) Thumbnail(s)

Hi moldach,
Try Filters->Distorts->IWarp.
Have a play with the 'Move' option, turn off bi-linear and adjust the preview image using the mouse until you are satisfied.
Just click the Reset button at anytime to start again if you don't like your results.

@moldach

You probably need a little bit more than just the iwarp filter and much depends on the form of the image.

Something to get you started, but you will have to experiment (a lot)
