Hey there, this is another GIMP video so basically I'm just going to teach you a neat effect that I just learned a while ago. Really smart guy had feature this particular on one of his articles if I'm not mistaken but anyway it is a really cool effect so to those who already know this good for you. I made sub as amaze and this is for the benefit of those who don’t know yet. So to all my subscribers, thanks for the sub, more videos to come and let's begin.
Go to file, go to new and I'm going to set my size to 200 x 80 pixels, it depends on you on how big your text would look like. We go to advance options and then change your fill with transparency instead of foreground color you must fill it with transparency like so, hit ok. And this is what mine looks like.
So we go to our layers window by hitting control L and then we’re going to make two more layers with the same size. So I'm going to name this one choco, so type would be transparency, hit ok. Another one, this is time it’s the choco 2, hit ok. So your layers window should look like this.
Now, we go to our second layer. So you select your second layer, go back to the workspace, go to select hit all. As with that we go to select you hit shrink. So I'm going t shrink this by ten pixels and this would determine by border. So it depends on you how your border would like then we go to select and then rounded rectangle to make it smoother. So I'll go with 25% radius and hit ok and there we go.
After we have created an inner rectangle you fill it up with white. So get your bucket fill tool make sure foreground color is white and fill it up like so. And then you go to select again this time you hit none. After that we’re going to pass our second layer to a filter called the Gaussian blur filter. So we go to filters then blur then Gaussian blur like so. So I'm going to pass this to a 10 x 10 pixels filter, so it really depends on you on how your blur radius would be. And then your blur method should be IIR, so if you're done with this just hit ok and it should look like this at the moment.
Now, we go to our layers window and then we are going to select our third layer. This time change your foreground color to the color of your chocolate. So in my case I'll go milk chocolate so I chose brown, these are my values for the brown color. If you want dark chocolate you go with black or dark brown and could also use white for white chocolate. So anyway if you're satisfied with your color just hit ok, select your bucket fill tool, all right and then you fill the whole thing up like so. So your layers window should look like this one.
Okay, still on the third layer we pass this to a filter, go to filters, go to map, go to bump map like so. Then make sure the following are followed so the map type should be linear, check the compensate for darkening, set your depth, I'll go with 12, set your ambient, I'll go with 100, X offset, Y offset it depends on you on how your values would look like. And then you go to bump map and make sure this is set to your second layer the one with the border so you do that and you hit okay. So your chocolate should look like this one. Yeah, it’s yummy. Anyway, so this is how it should look like at this moment.
And we’re going to put in our text. Okay, now we go to our text tool to create our text. Make sure that your foreground color is white. Set your font, set your size make sure it’s big enough and then just click on the chocolate type in whatever you want to type in, I'll go with geeky, hit close. And then move this, it chose cursive but it depends on you on what type of font you would want to. I just put this at the center. So if you're satisfied with that go to your filters, go to blur, go to Gaussian blur and then there's this one with the blur radius of two pixels 2 x 2 like so, hit ok. It should look like this one.
After that I'm going to pass it again to another filter this time to our map filter. But before doing that go to your layers window select your third layer the one with the brown or the color or the filled up color so you select that one go to filters and then pass this to our bump map again like so. So change your bump map to your text so it would be this one. So as you can see its like embedded on our chocolate now.
This time we check compensate for darkening as well as invert bump map like so. Then the map type should be spherical, all right. After that you set your depth, I'll go with the same values, set your ambient to 100 and if you're satisfied with what it looks like you hit ok. So if you're want to retain the white line or it could be a milk design or whatever then you go with this one, if not you can delete your previous layer or your latest layer here, delete that or just be this one.
So there you go, those are the effects that I want to share. Thanks for watching this video and I advice you guys to check my YouTube partners they're on my channel. Again, thanks for watching and as always just have fun.
