Hey guys! This time I wanted to show to you a simple trick you could do with your text and this is the use of GIMP.
So again, I have been uploading videos about GIMP, it’s pretty much like Photoshop except that it’s for free. And in this video, I’m just going to show a text effect or just basically adding gradient colors to your texts.
So let’s say, you have your text just type in whatever you want and in my case is GEEKY ARTIST. Now, we go to layer, transparency and then select alpha to selection and you will see dotted lines along your text. Go to the gradient tool, select your colors, select what type of gradient you want. So we have foreground to background, foreground to transparent, foreground to background rainbow style and to incorporate that with our text, all we have to do is to draw a line across your text. Whichever direction you want, so in my case is horizontal from left to right. And there’s our gradient color applied to our text.
So let’s try other colors, we have here schemes like full saturation for instance. So, how about molding. So, basically it adds radiant to your text making it interesting. Instead of the boring plain color, you can actually add gradient and this is neat text effect. So we can do, so it really depends on you what direction, where to start, where to end and just be creative.
So there you go, it’s just a simple trick or simple effect you can do with GIMP and more videos to come. So, to all of my subscribers who appreciate the episode guys. If you have any questions all about my videos or things related just message me here in YouTube. I’ll get to them soon as I can.
