Scanned images
Hi, I just joined this forum.Smile

I have a question which has been driving my nuts for a very long time.

I love to draw, I would like to use my drawings on some iPhone game. I am wondering how I can process the drawings I scanned into a high definition image? I do my drawings in old fashion paper and pencil way, once The drawings were scanned, the resulting images look very rough, for example, the lines are showing the pencil marks, a straight line has a few bumps in the middle, and circles seem a bit off, is there a way in Gimp to do some fine tuning on the images?

RE: Scanned images
Of course it depends on the kind of effect you want. I like more artistic effects and find that for some images like drawings, I can get more definition by using the cartoon filter.
Filters -> Artistic -> Cartoon

You can also touch thing up a little by using the smallest paint brush. Make the image really large (ctrl-scrollwheel) so you can see the individual pixels.
