Engraved/Raised Text ?
I found this tutorial:[url=http://gimp-tutorials.net/How-to-Engrave-Text-in-Gimp
]http://gimp-tutorials.net/How-to-Engrave-Text-in-Gimp
[/url] and I would like to have the same exact effect for a banner I'm trying to make except in black colored font. However, I tried to follow the same exact directions and I just can't seem to make it happen, brown or black font.

Can someone please break it down any easier than this? I know it seems like the easiest tutorial to follow but the outcome just doesn't seem to match the example.

Thanks!

I have a tutorial about how to create 3D Text, which is the "raised text" technique you are looking for. It involves downloading a Script from the Gimp Plugin Registry, the link and directions for which I have in the description box, and it allows you to create this effect for ANY color, including BLACK. It's really simple. Here is the link:
