My first Gimp Tutorial - easy forum set

here is a preview of what you will be creating:






now for the tut:

the siggy
open up a new canvas, 600x250
flood with black
then open up your tube of choice
i used one from Ismael Rac which you can purchase at his store, www.xeracx.net
place it somewhere in the center
duplicate your tube twice and mirror one
place those copies of your tube on either side of the center tube
merge them together (the two on the sides, not the center)
set the opacity to 50%
now go back to your background layer
go to filters, light and shadow, and select super nova
set the random hue at about 150
move it to the center
now add your border
you do this by adding a new layer in black or your choice
go to select by color, click on your new layer
go to select, shrink, and shrink by 5
then cut and you should now have a border around your tag
go to the top layer and add your text
i used American Highway at 63
add your copyright layer
and you're done with the siggy, now on to the avitar

the avitar
open a new canvas, 150x150
flood with black
add your tube somewhere off to the right or left
go back to the background layer and select from filters the supernova
use the same settings as before but make sure to place it behind your tube, either off to the right or left depending on where you placed your tube
now add a border
make a new layer in black or your choice
go to select by color, click on your new layer
go to select, shrink, and shrink by 5
now add your text
i used American Highway again but this time in 16
now use the rotate tool to rotate your text 90 degrees
move your text layer so that it is on the opposite side of your tube
add your copyright layer
and you have just made a forum set!!
