How to create a text logo that looks like the GL GIMP LEARN logo

Post#1 by trandoductin » 27 Sep 2016, 18:38


This is how the GL GIMP LEARN logo was created.

1) Create a new image in GIMP.
Right click background layer, Add Alpha channel.
2) Ctrl-A, Ctrl-X to cut away everything so that layer is completely transparent
3) Use the text tool (use White as text color) create the string "GL" (we used Segoe Script Bold font).

4) Right click the text layer that the "GL" is on and select "Alpha To Selection"
5) Create a new transparent layer on top of "GL" text layer, left click that layer to select it
6) Select -> Shrink (1 pixel)
7) Select "Blend Tool" and blend from a mid gray color to white

9) Create a new transparent layer below "GL" text layer, left click that layer to select it
10) Select -> Grow (1 pixel)
11) Select a blue color (of your choice) and Drag the color onto the selected area, and it'll fill the grown "GL" selected text with that blue. and you're done.

I sleep, I currently don't have a work to do that's why i got so much time to play around.
I got hired as a database designer on toptal.com but there doesn't seem to be database design work, they ask for fullstack developer and i am not a fullstack developer. So ... yeah until i see some posting for database design work on there I'll see if i can grow this forum. It is in desperate need of good content.
If you have any GIMP tricks of the trade. Feel free to share. ;)

Plus, this forum took like all of 3 minutes to create, customizing things took a bit more time but creating a basic/standard forum with phpBB is like a whole one click, not a half click, a WHOLE one :lol:
