- Generate base image
- Create several lighting variants
- Use the GAP package to generate an animation from that (IIRC it can generate the intermediate frames)

Note: despite its name, that image is an animated GIF, not JPG.

well thank you Tongue cause i been trying to use diffrent layers and blend with the text. Any idea how you would doing several lighting variants where it would look like that, cause its not just a glow if you look close, there is small designs in it.

Also where is the GAP package at, im using GIMP 2 incase it matters.

I would say:
- start with base design with potentially a selection on the letters
- generate lava layer with B&W gradient, put in "screen" mode and boost brightness & contrast
- repeat with different lava seeds for several copies of base design
- blend and shake well
