Dark Music Forum Set Tutorial



Here's a quick forum set tutorial for Gimp.
I am using a PTU scrap kit by Creative Scraps by Crys called Dark Like Me which you can find out more about HERE
and I am using the art of James Adams, which requires a license to use.  I had purchased this tube awhile back from a store that is no longer :(  but if you'd like to find out more about his art, you can go HERE and he is currently selling his tubes at AIL 

LET'S GET STARTED!
1. Open new image- size 600 x 250.
2. Open from kit, scale and place the following from the kit:
paper 5-ADD ALPHA CHANNEL- add noise, FILTER>DISTORTS>ERASE EVERY OTHER ROW with ROWS,EVEN & ERASE
paper 10-ADD ALPHA CHANNEL- (DUPLICATE and click eye in layers box to use later) - ALPHA TO SELECTION the white background, SELECT>SHRINK by 8, EDIT>CLEAR
paper 8-ADD ALPHA CHANNEL- add noise, ALPHA TO SELECTION the white background, SELECT>SHRINK by 7, EDIT>CLEAR
element 2
element 68 (DUPLICATE)
element 57 (DUPLICATE)
element 23 (DUPLICATE)
element 54- use the rectangle select to frame this element, then click the eye in the paper 10 layer previously hidden.  Go to SELECT>INVERT and EDIT>CLEAR to make the paper appear behind this element only.
3.  Add your tube of choice.  Include copyright symbol, artist's name, website and license number if applicable.
4.  Add drop shadows to the tube and other elements as you like by going to FILTERS>LIGHT & SHADOW>DROP SHADOW.
5.  Save project with .xcf extension so you can make changes if necessary then add your name.  I used a font called Vanish.  Then save as .png
FOR THE AVATAR:
Right click on the paper 8 layer and choose SCALE LAYER to 200 x 200 then place in an area you feel ok cropping.  Right click and ALPHA TO SELECTION then go to LAYER>CROP TO SELECTION.  Click and drag this layer to top of the layers box.  Re-add the copyright info and your name.  Save as .xcf first then as.png

Hope you liked this tut :)  xoxox
