Nevermind, I figured it out, I was clicking on the bucket fill mode, not the layers mode.

Lizzy Cotter says:

I tried this one time, it looked terrible. But now, I’m attempting to do it again, but whenever I go to ‘new layer’ and I fill the screen with black and I click ‘dodge’ it wont show my text anymore, what did I do wrong?

PrincessAlice0767 says:

great help thanks a tonne 🙂

monsoonami says:

Sure, that’s fine. I’m glad you got it to work.

Joel Howe says:

Hello yes, that was my problem! I’m sorry to ask, but would you allow me to please use this tutorial to create a logo for my Christian Youth group? Please 🙂

monsoonami says:

Make sure you unchecked the Lock alpha channel box (see 3:44).

Joel Howe says:

Hello, I need some help asap, you know when you get to the bit with the Gaussin Blur? I do the exact same thing as you, but my text doesn’t go glowy, at all, any ideas?

oldi184 says:

Great tutorial and effect! 🙂

monsoonami says:

They got rid of the different sized fuzzy brushes in GIMP 2.8, so now you just choose one of the soft brushes and change the size.

i do not have the circle fuzzy (19) brush

This is great, thank you!

THANK YOU! I was going crazy

monsoonami says:

Windows > Dockable Dialogs > Layers

100kidzoom says:

I HAVEN’T THE LAYERS ! WHY ?

TheShadowHunter4 says:

You’re so awesome!

monsoonami says:

This video was uploaded 2 years before GIMP 2.8 was released, so of course it’s not that version. This is GIMP 2.6. It can still be done almost exactly the same in 2.8 though. What part did you get stuck at?

Matthew Schepke says:

What version of GIMP are you doing the tutorial with, because GIMP 2.8 doesn’t have a lot of the tools/brushes you used in here. When I tried making it, it didn’t even come close to what you did, even if I re-did a million times and followed all of your steps.

MrSir2552 says:

icedraaag says:

Can u do it with other fonts??

MostWantedDownloader says:

you always make the text “gimp”.. Can you change a little?

monsoonami says:

Either go to Edit > Clear or press the “Delete” key on your keyboard.

Andrea Bissacco says:

GrovtPWT says:

mercanaries3 says:

CrAzY3AGL3 says:

Thanks  🙂

monsoonami says:

Sorry, I really don’t have time to make tutorials while I’m busy with school, but I hope to make some over the summer (maybe as early as May).

candoitnow1 says:

Great tutorial. You said you will be doing some more tutorials and some using other programms you like to use. Could you let us know when this will be. I’m sure alot of us are excited and love to see them. Thanks.

amiri2211 says:

what version are you using

amiri2211 says:

nice video

SouthEastSkateUK says:

I had this problem. hit the refresh button on the text window 🙂

monsoonami says:

Hey thanks! Yeah, it would be nice for techtonicc to mention my video, but I don’t “own” the techniques used here, so he certainly doesn’t have to. Besides, I guess it is kind of cool that my ideas can reach more people through his videos.
