… and this popped out of my toaster. What the hey?

Want your own miraculous toast?
- Install the Gimp. (yum install gimp -y)
- Grab some bread.
- Grab the special edition black & white beef.
- Open up your bread in Gimp. Go to File > Open as Layer and grab black & white beefy. Make sure his layer is on top of the bread.
- In the Gimp ‘Layers’ palette, set Beefy’s blending mode to ‘burn.’ Adjust the opacity to your toast darkness preferences.
- Whoah, Beefy’s got a nice tan there, but the rest of the bread is pale white! Add a new layer, fill it in with a light grey, and set it to the ‘burn’ layer blending mode to even out the toast level a bit more.
- To give Beefy a more natural toasty texture, run Filters > Generic > Dilate on him once or twice to your taste.
- (Optional) Select ‘new layer from visible’ by right-clicking the layers dialog, and hide the layers underneath. Create a layer mask and mask out the toast so you’ll have a transparent background, and add a drop shadow if you like. Otherwise enjoy your beefy toast on the original dark background.
What the hey?
