1. Close GIMP. Go to Dafont.com. 2. Find a font you like and click Download. When the pop-up opens, click save. 3. Then go to where it saved. It is probably either on your desktop or in My Documents - Downloads. If you can't find it, go to Start Menu - Search and look up the font name. 4. Right click on the font and select Extract All. The folder should extract. 5. Click on the folder. Now, there will be a TTF file (True Type Font). It's icon is blue with a big T on it. Copy that. 6. Go to My Computer - Control Panel - Fonts and paste it into there. Now you can have it anywhere 7. Copy the file again. 8. Now go to My Computer - Local Disk (C: ) - Your Computer Screen Name - Documents and Settings - gimp 2.6 - fonts and paste it in there. When you open GIMP you should have the font.
1. (Make sure GIMP IS CLOSED) Start by finding some brushes. I usually use DeviantArt, and you can just search up some GIMP brushes there. Also, if you have some of the newer versions of GIMP, you can even load Photoshop brushes onto it! http://www.deviant.art.com/#catpath=resources/applications&order=9 <-- Link to deviantart brush location. Where it says search, just type in what brush you want, or just browse through the ones already there.
2. Now find where it's downloaded to (it downloads to different places per computer). The two likely places are your Desktop or My Documents -- Downloads. I suggest going to start -- search -- and type in the name of the brush. Once you've found that, DO NOT click in the folder. Right click it and press Extract All...
3. The Extraction Wizard should open up. Click next, then click Browse.
4. Click the plus by My Computer when it asks you where to save. Go to Local Disk (C:]: -- Documents and Settings -- Your ScreenName -- gimp-2.6 -- brushes. 5. Click next, finish. Now open up gimp, and your new brushes should be there! TADA!
Step 1: Go to Google images and get a picture. I will be using this one: http://www.desktopexchange.com/gallery/albums/Christmas-wallpaper/Winter_Wonderland_1_1024x768.jpg [I suggest don't open this if you have a slow computer, it's a big image] Copy this image. Step 2: Open Gimp. Paste the image (Ctrl V on your keyboard). Don't open a file, don't make a new file. Make sure there is no images open on Gimp and paste it. Step 3: In toolbox, there will be an icon that looks like this: . Click it. Step 4: Click the box next to where it says Aspect Ratio. In the box under Aspect Ratio, put 1:1 . (This was done on my tablet, tell me if you can't read my handwriting.) Step 5: Click and drag on the area you want to crop. When you've got the area selected like this: Click on the selected area and it will crop it. Step 6: Now click on the scaling tool. It looks like this: Step 7: Click on your image. A pop-up should appear. Click on this: Then enter 125 in the width box. If you've linked the chain, the height should automatically change. Click Scale. Step 8: Now you'll probably have this huge amount of space and just a little picture, right? Go back to the crop tool, but this time click the drop arrow beside aspect ratio. Select size. Put 120x120 (or 100x100) in the box. Click on the photo and drag it to where your smaller image is. Click when you've got it there. Step 9: Add brush strokes if wanted. Just no text for the time being, whether you know how to or not, just not now. Step 10: Go to File - Save As - yourfilenamehere.PNG. You must save it as .PNG if you want it to save correctly. Then click export (if needed), save.
Select the second text layer (‘your text here’ #1). Use the bucket and fill the text with white. Click the third text layer (‘your text here’ #2) and fill the text with black. Go to Select > None. Click on the first text layer (‘your text here’).
Cropping or deleting the background layer is also optional. Cropping is probably a good idea, though.
Save as .png. Export, Save.
Step 1: Make a 570x315 file. Delete the background layer and add a transparent layer in it's place. Step 2: Change your FG color to black. Step 3: Select the text tool and apply the text you want. Put a space before and after your text. Step 4: Hold Ctrl L on your keyboard. The layers dialogue should appear. Step 5: Click on the duplicate layer. It is the beside the down tool, and looks like a double screen. Step 6: Find a color you like and apply it to the first text layer (bottom text layer) Step 7: Click on the second text layer (top). Right click it and hit Alpha To Selection. Click delete on your keyboard. Go to the gradient button. Select a gradient that goes with the color you selected in step 6. Step 8: Drag the gradient across the text. Step 9: Go to Select - None Step 10: Click on the first (bottom) text layer. Go to Filters - Blur - Gaussian Blur. Set the diameter to whatever you think looks best Step 11: Repeat these steps using whatever text you wish. This is optional. Step 12: Save as .png
Now we're going to make the images transparent. This is sorta hard, but I think you're up for the challenge.(;
Select one of your images by clicking on it in the Layers Dialogue. Now, use the Flip tool  and click on the picture to flip the image. Now flip it back. It doesn't look like it did anything...but it did something.. I promise. Repeat this step for all three of the images.
Next, use that lovely Move tool again and put your middle layer so it is overlapping your left layer --
Now click on the Eraser tool  and make it pretty large. [[Mine is Circle (11), scaled to 6.]]
Make sure your middle layer is selected in the Layers Dialogue. Erase around the celebrity's body. It may come out looking something like this:
Move your middle image to where none of the transparency is showing. Repeat the above steps for the third image. Your image should look something like this when finished:
Step 3: Open up GIMP. Open your original image (or Copy - Paste it) in GIMP.
Step 4: Copy and paste each of your textures into a new image (a different image per texture). This can be done by copying the image, then holding down Shift + Ctrl + V.
Step 5: Find the dimensions of your image by looking in the upper left hand corner of GIMP:
Step 6: Go to your Crop tool and put in the dimensions of the image as a ratio. (If you're using the same image as me, you will put 500x333 in it.) Check the box beside the drop menu:
Step 7: Go to one of your textures and drag your crop box across until you've got all the part of the texture you want. Then crop it. Now scale it down to the actual size of your image (500x333).
Step 8: Use the Rectangle Select Tool to select the entire image. Now cut it (Ctrl + X) and paste it (Ctrl + V) into your original image. If there are "marching ants" around the image, make a new layer (Shift + Ctrl + N).
Step 9: Repeat steps 6-8 for your other textures. If you haven't already, open up the Layers Dialogue (Ctrl + L).
Your layers dialogue should look like this once all the textures are pasted into it.
Step 10: Make the top textures invisible by clicking on the eye.
Step 11: See that little drop-drown list at the top of the layers dialogue? Mess around with the different blending options and Opacity. For this first one, I will be using Screen with 25% Opacity.
Step 12: Keep messing with Blending Options and Opacity with your other two textures. (Make them visible again by clicking on the eye) Your final product may look something like this -
