Default Gradient Siggie- GIMP Guide

First, what I'm doing here by 'growing' it... it is because I prefer the text bolded... & sorry if this has been posted...

1. Open up GIMP.

2. Get a layer open & click 'Advanced options' 'Fill with: Transparency'
Click the image to open in full size.

3. Click the text tool, design the font, size & color [you won't need the color when we're done... it'll be replaced with the gradient]
Click the image to open in full size.

4. Drag a rectangle wear you want to type.

5. Type what you want in the box... it should appear on the screen.
Click the image to open in full size.

6. Right click on the text layer & click 'Alpha to selection'
Click the image to open in full size.

7. Click on the 'Background' layer [should automatically be there]

8. Go to 'Select' & 'grow'
Click the image to open in full size.

9. Grow by '1' [it makes it look bolded... it's the way I prefer it... plus it's easier that way]
Click the image to open in full size.

10. Click the 'Gradient' tool & select what gradient type you want
Click the image to open in full size.

11. Delete the text layer by clicking on the 'trash can'. Make sure to leave the background layer [which is the gradient layer]
Click the image to open in full size.

12. Click the rectangle tool, draw it around your text, go to 'image' & 'crop to selection'
Click the image to open in full size.

13. 'Save as' Be sure to save it as PNG & your done
Click the image to open in full size.

Result:
Click the image to open in full size.

Enjoy! (:

Yeah, most the time that happens... but you need it to be transparent to make the gradient [I think]
