I've watched and read quite a few tutorials - on how to do this in Gimp - they all stink and they are all much too complicated (for me).

Open a new document - (in gimp) RIGHT CLICK on that empty canvas and follow:

RIGHT CLICK > File > Create > FX Foundry > Logo > Glass Effect Text (that's it your finished) -AFTER you change the Gimp entry @ the top of the menu !

This text is transparent (png) so anything under it will show through!

If you don't have that script in your (scripts) folder -

GET SCRIPT HERE

By the way: I have four Inupiaq (Eskimo) sons - Their names are:

MarkAndrew Jesse Isaiah Khristopher = MAJIK
Isaiah, MarkAndrew, Jesse, Eves = IMAJE

RE: Glass Text
That the whole difference between a script and a tutorial. A script does what its designer wants, a (well-written) tutorial can hopefully be adapted to your own needs. Following a tutorial also hopefully makes you discover some functionalities.

I also wonder why you distribute the script instead of referring people to the original one? http://gimpfx-foundry.sourceforge.net/

Because I just don't know any better - thanks for showing me what a jerk I have been! I am new to linux and I am new to gimp. Just your basic noob!!

RE: Glass Text
Your "tip" is fine with me. I was reacting to you saying that tutorials are more complicated that just using the script... which is true, but only within the fairly limited validity domain where he script does exactly what you want.

RE: Glass Text
That should be "Magic Image", I believe.

The spelling errors stand out like a sore thumb. Not good!

You overlooked his first post if you're serious.

Hence the spelling, it's intentional.

I apologize.

I guess I'm not only stupid concerning GIMP.

I will work on both.
