GIMP Tutorial: Pop-Out Circle Avatars



Create avatars and profile pictures contained within a circle where only key elements of the photo pop out of them. This is a technique I often use myself for my own profile pictures and in my written content.

This tutorial is for GIMP version 2.8 and is intended to teach beginners how to use the software. Inkscape is a great free alternative to Adobe Photoshop.

  • I’m not exactly sure what I’m doing wrong but I’m following your directions as I watch and when I get to the part where I use the elliptical and do the “grow” the “grow” is not highlighted to choose! Help! 😊

  • Love these videos! I had a friend who wanted me to make a logo for them so I downloaded inkscape and followed one of your tutorials and they loved it! Now through your channel I think GIMP has to be my next download and I'll try this for some profile pics. Your tutorials are so easy and thorough and even if you had never used the programs (Like i did) you can create something beautiful. Well done sir and keep up the good work

  • This would look so cool for LinkedIn, but does anyone know how to make it compatible? LinkedIn uses circle avatars as standard, so this would end up being a circle within a circle. I guess you'd have to match up the background perfectly, and since I'm watching GIMP tutorial videos you can guess I don't have the skills for that!

  • A very good video as always. However, I do similar things with Inkscape using clipping. I prefer this because I consider Inkscape’s Bezier tool more convenient to use than Gimp’s path tool. Plus, in Inkscape you can subsequently change details like the circle’s color, diameter or thickness or even the outline of the cut shape without much effort. After that–if needed–I would save a copy as "Gimp XCF maintaining layers" and apply filters or color changes in Gimp.
