Default Re: A Guide on Everything Graphics Making.

Well that's what I meant(;

Here's a spoiler of GIMP Tutorials;;

Spoiler: show

Uploading Fonts
Spoiler: show
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.


Uploading Brushes
Spoiler: show
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.***************/#catpath=...ations&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!


Cropping and Scaling
Spoiler: show
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 the image to open in full size.. Click it.
Step 4: Click the box next to where it says Aspect Ratio. In the box under Aspect Ratio, put 1:1 .
Click the image to open in full size.
(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 the image to open in full size.
Click on the selected area and it will crop it.
Step 6: Now click on the scaling tool. It looks like this: Click the image to open in full size.
Step 7: Click on your image. A pop-up should appear. Click on this: Click the image to open in full size.
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.
Click the image to open in full 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.


Neon Banners
Spoiler: show
File -- Create -- Logo -- Neon

Click the image to open in full size.
Make sure you click CREATE SHADOW && The background is BLACK -- Ok --

Click the image to open in full size.

Ctrl L -- CLICK ON THE BACKGROUND LAYER. It should be at the bottom.

Cropping or deleting the background layer is also optional. Cropping is probably a good idea, though.

Gaussian Blur

Spoiler: show
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

I'm too lazy to create a thread... lol

And by the way, I tried one of these a few months ago and cocoabean merged it with my shop. So, since you have a shop, look out for it being merged.
