This Golden Text Tutorial is just driving me nuts!
I am working on this for hours, but as often as I am exactly doing what is told in this tutorial, the outcome is just not, what it should be. Sad

Gimp Golden Text Tutorial

So far I've come:

Now I want to remove the background so I can insert only the text into an new picture.

Thanks for your help.

RE: This Golden Text Tutorial is just driving me nuts!
Somewhere you lost the selection. In the tutorial, effects apply only to the letters because the selection is on the letters. Or, keep the original text layer at the bottoms of the layer pile, and when you have the golden "plate" with the letters, 1) select you saved Text mayer and do Layer/Transparency/Alpha to selection (this will make a selection that follows the letters), then invert the selection, then select the "plate" and erase.
