Here is a simple technique that allows you to colorize black and white images with excellent results. For the purpose of this tutorial, we will be using a photo of James Dean from the 1956 movie “Giant”.
While colorizing the entire photo would merely require we add 2 or 3 additional color layers, we will limit ourselves to colorizing James Dean only, leaving the automobile, sky and background in black and white.

You maybe know this: in the very past important letters have been sealed using a so called wax seal. This is a hot wax drop on the opening of the envelope - then a seal ring containing the unique emblem of the empire was pressed on the wax to harden the wax. So the letter was secured from spies - because any opening would have breached the original letter.
This tutorial shows how to create such a wax seal in GIMP! Have fun ;)

For one it might be a relic from the past, for others it is a symbol for pure party and dancing: a disco ball. It is a sparkling and glossy orb that has a glassy mosaic-like surface which is then rotating in colored disco light to spread the lights into different directions.
