PHOTO POPOUT:

A simple but cool effect where pixels appear to popout of the image.

1) Start off by selecting the area of the image which will popout, in this case, the car. How you select depends on your selecting method, freehand, scissors or something else. I tend to use a mixture of these along with the eraser to soften out edges. Once the selection is done, do a Ctrl+C (copy) and Ctrl+V (paste) upon which a floating layer appears on top of the current one. Just click the new layer button and it will become a proper layer.

2) Now create a new layer on top and fill it with white. Then select the vertical ruler and mark at the place where you want the popout to appear. Also reduce the opacity of the white layer so that the bottom layer is visible.

3) While still on the white layer, do a select all (Ctrl+A) and use the perspective tool to get the desired shape of the layer. Finish off by clicking on Transform.

4) Another floating layer and again click create new layer and name it something like 'photo'. At this point, the white layer can be deleted.

5) If anything is selected on the image, deselect it by using Ctrl+Shift+A or from select menu. Using the magic wand(fuzzy) tool, click on the white color of the photo layer and apply a shrink of around 15 pixels from the select menu.

6) Hit delete on this selection and apply a gaussian blur of 2 rads to this 'photo' layer.

7) Using magic wand again with the add to selection turned on, select the outside regions of the 'photo' layer.i.e, the two triangle shapes, click on one and then click on the other.

8.) Now make the background layer active and fill black on those selections. Similarly do the same on the large central area by selecting it with rectangular selection tool and fill this with black too.

9) FINALLY, put the car layer on top of the photo layer and you have the effect. Save it and use it. :)

Hehe don't put it as wallpaper, not yet! I'm working on a high-res version minus the errors. There are some rough edges in this image.

As for where I learned it, nowhere :p. I knew I had to do something as soon as I laid my eyes on the Mosaic filter, just kept tweaking and working on the image for 5 hours until getting a somewhat respectable result.

Re: !!.:GIMP~art:.!!

^^ I am working on it and I am new to GIMP.

You can get the font by this:
sudo apt-get install ttf-ubuntu-title

The screenshot can be resized using the Perspective tool....I guess.....

I guess doing the mirror as in before, shadow, blur and as gagandeep mentioned use the perspective tool on the layer contaning the screenshot and finally a gradient of FG to transparent with white as the fg color from the top right.
