Digitally Free: Censor An Image In GIMP

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/12/09

I used the tips at [Archive.isDigitally Free: Censor An Image In GIMP to ensure some sensitive information was redacted from a picture I published on the internet.

dfree got much further than I needed, so I stayed at a Gaussian Blur with an 80 pixel radius which was more than enough to blur out a few rectangular areas but still show the user-experience of the underlying controls.

Do not blur, but do randomly add noise or move pixels – Censoring image in GIMP – Graphic Design Stack Exchange

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/05/03

Blurring is like a hash function: it cannot be undone, but with enough plain text to blur examples, you can reconstruct the plain text: [WayBack] Why blurring sensitive information is a bad idea | dheera.net | Dheera Venkatraman’s web site

As an alternative, randomly add noise or move pixels. I used  [WayBack] Censoring image in GIMP – Graphic Design Stack Exchange. For the example on the right, I used “Filters → Noise → Spread” from the Stack Exchange answer.

With enough randomness, it is much harder to construct plain/hash combinations.

Animated SVG vs GIF [CAGEMATCH]

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/01/13

Often, SVG animates a lot better than GIF. Keep this in mind:

Not only should the image be a good candidate for SVG, but SVG should also be a good candidate for the image.

such as:

  • Logos,
  • non-complex,
  • vector-based illustrations,
  • user interface controls,
  • infographics,
  • and icons.
