Guide to making Several colors with Gradient-Page 7 Post 69
Hi BI Members!There has been lots of question about making the fading text signatures,so i thought i'd post a guide.

You can download this at http://www.gimp.org
Make sure you ask your parents before you download it,and its 100% virus free.Here we go!

1.Getting Started
Open up GIMP.Go to file then new and a box will come up.make sure you have everything set as i have below.But don't forget to go to advanced option and then change where it says Fill With,click the arrow beside where it says background color and click Transparency.Then Click OK.Click the image to open in full size.

2.Adding Text
Now you will see a box.It looks like this.
Click the image to open in full size.
on the left you will see the long box with all the icons at the top,it looks like what i have below.Click the A meaning Text,i have an arrow pointed to it.
Click the image to open in full size.
Click the A then choose your font and the size,then drag your mouse over the transparent box.Like this.
Click the image to open in full size.
Then a box will come up.type your text in there.Make sure you start with black as a color.
Click the image to open in full size.
and as you type it'll appear in the transparent box.make it a little bigger by adjusting the size on the left,under the font.and center it under the color where it says justify.
3.Adding Gradient
Now you have this.
Click the image to open in full size.
Pick the two colors you want and this is how you choose,see the two boxes?They look like this.
Click the image to open in full size.
my two colors were pink and purple.
Now go to where the little shaded box is,with the black and withe that looks like this.
Click the image to open in full size.
Where it says mode click that arrow and go to addition.
Click the image to open in full size.
Now drag the gradient over the word,like this.
Click the image to open in full size.
now release your finger from the mouse and it should look like this:
Click the image to open in full size.

now,when you have it like you want it,go to file,save as and then a box will come up.name it,and then go to Select File Type (by Extension)
Click the image to open in full size.
now go there and go down until you see PNG.now click that and now click save and a box will come up click export,then another box will come up and make sure all the boxes are checked off.and wa-lah!!

Now you have.....
Click the image to open in full size.
