Monochromatic Genre Icons

Recommended Posts

The Baron

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.

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.dropboxusercontent.com/u/53787006/genre-icons.zip

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

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.

@@Lee, one other thing. After you copy the image you want to use as a background, you can choose to Paste as... Layer and the image will automatically added to the Genre icon you are creating as a Layer. Makes life a little easier.

Is it possible to make one more Genre Images Poster/thumb for "Nature".

There are some Dinosaurs Documentarys and the Red Bull Stratos Movie in there. Would be nice.

I am a very poor guy in using gimp/photoshop and other design programms...... :D

 

Would be great
