    Brushed Metal - Gimp Tutorial

    Right, today we are going to learn how to make a brushed metal effect and blended text on Gimp!

    -Insert Cheers-

    Set Up:

    Open>New

    Pick the size you want to use, in this case we will use 370x120



    Step one:

    Now add colour to our background

    Layer>Colours>Colorize

    We will use these settings:
    Hue - 43
    Saturation - 15
    Lightness - -7

    Or you could play around with those untill you get a colour that you like for the metal



    Step 2:

    Now apply a RGB Scatter (Filters>Noise>RGB Scatter)

    Now use these settings:

    Red - 0.20
    Green - 0.20
    Blue - 0.20
    Alpha - 0.00

    Do tick any of the boxes in there, now like ok.



    Step 3:

    Next we will apply a motion blur (Filters>Blur>Motion Blur)

    Use these settings:

    Tick Linear
    Length - 15
    Angle - 0

    and here you go, Brushed metal Background!



    The next step is to add text if you wish

    Step 4:

    Now add some text to the image, any size/any font. Now, you know the layer that the text is on? well make it overlay and set it to 65% opacity.

    Step 5:

    Dupelicate the text layer, set the new 'dupelicated layer' and set it to normal and opacity anywhere between 25% and 35%.

    Step 6:

    Now Alpha to selection (Layer>Transparency>Alpha to selection). Next shrink the selected by 1 pixel (select>shrink). Now clear the selection (Edit>Clear).

    Voila, Your done!



    A finished product which looks great!

    If you think it's to basic then you can try a number of things, like adding some lighting into it or adding a image like this:
