Can someone tell me how to make this?
Hey yall, glad to find a place where I can ask questions. I'm trying to self-teach myself how to do some of the basics of design, and I was wondering if there was anyone that could show me how to make this shadow using gimp. I've attached a copy of it below.

Like I said, i'm trying to teach myself how to design, and i've been playing around with gimp, but i cant figure out how to create the curved line the way it's shown. I also want it so that the background is translucent so the image can be put on any color and all you see is the image. I would also like to do the same with text.

Thanks in advance for the help,
texasgal

You can adjust the depth of the shadow with the opacity slider. See attached XCF, and check the Layers and Paths list.

Thanks for the explanation, but I feel really dumb about what I'm about to say. I dont understand. Could you explain in a "GIMP for DUMMIES" way? Sorry about that. I'm not sure what I should do first. I tried to follow but it didn't work.
