Hey there! This time I want to show you guys another Gimp tutorial but before proceeding into the tutorial a quick update. I have a new YouTube partner its atila339 and he's just starting to make some videos, so I advice you guys to check his tutorials because they're really useful and cool. So there you go that’s my new YouTube partner. My other YouTube partners are on my channel, I also advice you guys to check them out as well.
So, let's get on with Gimp tutorial. If you would recall I had made a video about making a yummy text, basically what you do there is you create your text on a block of chocolate, so that’s pretty cool. This time I'm going to share with you another text effect. It’s called a burning text effect and this is for the benefit of those don’t know yet.
So to start off let's go to file, any size would do and hit new. So we create a new image and I advice you guys to use a dark background. So you just go to your fill tool, change your color to black and fill it up. Then with your text color you can choose whatever color you like but it’s advisable to use white, okay. There you go.
Now, we go to our text tool, select your font size and then put in your text. So I'm just going to go with burn, here you go and post. Okay, so we’re just going to move our text, here we go. And then we’re going to go to our smudge tool, so we’re just going to smudge our text vertically upwards like so. So I just smudge it from top to bottom. So please take your time, this is only a demonstration. Take your time doing this. I just going to smudge our text like so.
There you go, so if you're satisfied with your smudging just go to layers hit control L and then we’re going to merge our text with our background. So right click your burn layer or your text layer and then go to merge down and there we go.
Okay, so it is advisable to smudge your text bottom to up or in a vertical fashion and it really depends on you guys on how you would want your flames to look like as you or burning your text. But if you’re satisfied with your settings just go to layers, merge your text with your background and let's do some colors. So we go to colors and then go to color balance and we will adjust mid tone first. So we put in 100, 30 and -30 and we hit ok. It should look like this one.
And then we go to color again, this time we’re going to adjust shadows. We put in the same values with 100, 30, and then negative -30 and hit ok. And last we found out the list is the highlights, so we go to highlights and we put in 100, 0, and -30 and we hit ok. So there you go there's your burning text. And it really depends on you guys on how you would want your flame to look like and you can also change the color if you want to.
So I’ll just try it with mid tones, let's say I want to it green. Here we go, green, -30, let say this is zero, so you experimented your colors, experimented you values and then ok. And basically you can just change the color if you want to so that’s another need to way of creating your flaming or burning text.
So there you go it’s just a quick tutorial, another neat text effect for you guys. It really depends on you on how you would practice your creativity.
