I need help with the GIMP, I've used it for awhile, learned most of the functions, but I can't make anything good. Can someone show me how to make a good background a put a good text on it (like the text from the logo generator in script fu)?
You need learn how work with layers (if you want that effects on text or an image).
IF you would like to make a Logo you can open a picture ( or a new image).
Use keyboard key T to access a Tex Editor of Gimp.
Write your text that will be used in your project.
Open the Layer dialog (CTRL+L).
At the Boton of Layer dialog you will see a Boton to duplicate layer (Click on it).
You Should work in an other layer to avoid corrupt original.
You can change the background, text color, or anything.
IF you want a diferent effect you can change the opacity of one of your layers.
You need play with Gimp as a child and you will learn more.
You can get it.
