This GIMP (GNU) tutorial demonstrates how to apply GIMP’s Blended Script to Text.

You can quickly Undo a step at any time by pressing Ctrl then Z. Alternatively, click a previous Undo History snapshot - Windows then Dockable Dialogues then click Undo History. In addition, to Zoom in (or Zoom out) of your image; from the top menu, choose View then select a Zoom Tool from the subsequent drop-down list.

Note
Ensure the Layers and the Undo History Palettes are visible, and then drag them into position over your workspace - (Windows then Dockable Dialogues - then click Layers and Undo History).

Launch GIMP & Organise Its Workspace & Palettes

1/
Create a New Image, and set the following Width and Height and Fill with attributes. Alternatively, select Width and Height dimensions of your choice.

Note
If you are not printing your work, set a Resolution of 72.000 Pixels. If you are printing your work, a resolution of 300.000 Pixels will be better.





2/
Now, from the left-side Toolbox, activate the Text Tool. (
Text Tool Tutorial).

Note
The size of the Text is determined by your
Image’s Resolution (Size) - and the look you are seeking.



Set the Foreground Colour to a Text Colour of your choice. I am selecting the following pinky beige.

           



After you have set your Text attributes: left-click once over the White Image. And from the subsequent Gimp Text Editor dialogue box, type in a Text String of your choice, and then click Close - as illustrated below.



3/
From the left-side Toolbox, activate the Move Tool.



Then left-click over your workspace’s Text, and drag your Text to a central position - as illustrated below.





4/
Now, right-click the Text Layer - and from the subsequent drop-down list, click Alpha to Selection.

                         

Your text will now be isolated by the following Selection Marquee.



5/
Now, from the top menu, choose Filters then choose Alpha To Logo and then choose Blended. And from the subsequent Script-Fu Blended dialogue box, enter settings of your choice, and then click OK.

Warning
The image will always be resized to the Active Layer's size.

and is ready to Optimise and Save.
