Custom Font Lighting Effects GT Style Settings

Post#1 by skinnyhouse » 14 May 2019, 13:20


I thought it might be useful to have a space for showing the settings used to create custom fonts using the Lighting Effects filter - rather than clogging up the main Custom Font thread.

Number 1 using a pattern uploaded by Rod on GimpChat:

Another seamless pattern courtesy of Rod - sort of plant based - with a red light.

Skinnyhouse, I've seen some of your threads and this looks interesting. Where exactly is a starting point for someone to get into this?

Hi Archie.
If you like fonts and messing about with letter shapes then I am sure you will enjoy at least some of the custom font tools.

I have added a guide (three part) to my tools on GimpLearn which includes an overview of the tools:

viewtopic.php?f=10&t=2347

If you click on more near my picture you can click on the link to the most up-to-date version (Version 6) of my tools although this does not include the Lighting Effects filter.

Hope to see you posting with your own custom fonts soon.

Just out of interest:

The Lighting Effects filter was intended to make life easier when applying Lighting to the many layers of a custom font but you can use it with other images; just copy the image layer and rename it in custom font format e.g. rename it as "A.png".

Here are some scaled down example results using a peacock image from Pixabay (original top left):
