GIMP 2.10 Photo Manipulation Tutorial: Add 3D Glowing Emojis

In this GIMP 2.10.2 photo manipulation tutorial inspired by calop_ (Calob Castellon) on Instragram, I’ll show you how to add 3D glowing objects/emojis/icons to your photos. This technique can bring dimension, fun and character to your photos!

I show you how to add an icon/emoji, make it glow, and add lighting effects using layer masks, layer group masks, and gradients to make it appear as if the object is glowing on your model. This is a great advanced photography tutorial!
