How do I do this........
I saw a YouTube video by un4gvn where he made text look as though it was engraved in to a wood background. I followed the steps and it worked beautifully. I want to do an image but cannot get the image to work.

Here is the link for UN4GVN: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DhKoAlpYxso

I found a video that someone did with photoshop but want to learn how to do it with Gimp.

Here is the link for that video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yr5cUBDAXoY

I want to do an image and not text. I am new to Gimp.

Can someone explain how to do the image with Gimp?

I think what you are looking for is a Bump Map Filters -> Map -> Bump Map

You can use an image for the bump map, does not have to be a layer, does not have to be visible

Then on the image/layer you want to 'engrave' use that bump-map image as the source.

example. http://i.imgur.com/6X6bUjs.jpg

You can go a bit further with the source image, make it into an outline with edge detect, a bit of blur and that gives a less rounded result
