make your photo an obamicon using gimp 2.8 in 3 steps

Hey there you guys :D

Good day to you.

Without any websites or third party freeware you can turn your photo into an obamicon hope using a script!!

Easiest way available to date. And if you have 

 anything easier then please! I'm just that lazy!!

First: paste it in the scripts directory of your gimp install, mine is:

"C:\Program Files\GIMP 2\share\gimp\2.0\scripts\"

Second: open gimp 2.8 and navigate to the menu Filter>Artistic>obama hope
click and press OK in the window that pops up.

And that was it, pretty simple i cannot believe it myself, and it's only 2 kb in size!!

Download the script from here. comment if you like and download. ^_^

Support from author can be found here..
P.S: there is a Guevara script (Same in install) but totally different. download here.


  1. I love it, saved my a ton of work with Illustrator, thank you so much.

  2. Hi there, I use 2.8 but the script won't show up udner scripts/artistic?

    1. It's called "Obama Hope", check again under this name :)
      And you have to restart the program if you installed the script while it's running it wont work.
      Make sure you pasted it in "C:\Program Files\GIMP 2\share\gimp\2.0\scripts\" where is several .scm files

  3. Amazing Thanks! I've been using Obamicon.Me website in making my obamicon posters but the site has been sold or taken down, now i can create posters even when i'm offline.

    1. I'm glad you like it JaMMy :) Thanks for stopping by, and keep my blog in your bookmarks ;)
