In this video, we learn how to create a modern bokeh effect in GIMP. First, start a new image and then change it to the size that you want. From here, click on the paint can and then fill your box up with a color. Then, create a new layer and name it "bokeh background". Click on this layer and then use the paintbrush tool to paint a small brush with color onto it. Start to paint on small dots and you will see that there are small tiny star like dots that start to appear. Then, fade these out using the effects toolbar. When you are finished, save this or add color as you would like, enjoy!
