I created a set of monochromatic TV & Film genre icons, I thought I would share them for (hopefully) your viewing pleasure.

They are 640x360 in size, there are multiple TV and Film Genres including: Action, Adventure, Comedy, Crime, Drama, Fantasy, Foreign, Horror, SciFi, Thrilller, War & Western.

Download link: https://dl.dropboxus...genre-icons.zip

I have included the Gimp2 template I used to create the icons.

 

I've also created poster versions of the genre icons.

The praise is much appreciated.

 

By the way, feel free to make requests for other genres or different images for existing genres.

I decided, in a moment of weakness, to create poster formatted versions of the genre icons I've created thus far. If anyone has a notion to make use of any of the Genre icon's I've made thus far they can be found here: https://dl.dropboxus...genre-icons.zip

Here is a look at some of the new icons I've come up with:

There are 14 TV Genre icons available, in both Thumb and Poster formats: https://dl.dropboxus...genre-icons.zip

Not being an experienced GIMP user how do I drop a new image onto the template and "monochrome" it??

I fancy these as top level icons for TV/Movies/Music....

So, what I normally do is have another Gimp2 image open, In this, I can modify the image I want to use. In this image, I go to Image - Mode - Greyscale. This will convert the image you wish to use into a Black and White image. I then go to Colors - Brightness/Contrast and change the contrast to make the image more stark.

 

You then copy this image into the template you are using, which is still in RGB mode and then move this image behind the colour layer.

 

You can simlpy right click the image you want to use in the Genre icon and rightr click & open with Gimp2.
