Just what I was looking for thanks Art. After a buddy of mine was telling me how great PS is and me being so cheap to not buy it he stated that I couldn't get this effect with the Gimp. Thanks again.

Anyways, here's what I came up with :D

Nice one, Silvertayl! Just a question for you: Did you use the steps in this tutorial to 'cut out' everything outside of the text? The reason I ask, is that in the script, I have 2 options for 'masking' using an existing layer. Check my description section at DeviantArt (http://fence-post.deviantart.com/art/GI ... t-84921148) under Script Options to get some ideas. Saves a LOT of time. If you need additional information, send me a note on dA and I'll help you out. I haven't been too active with GIMP or forums lately, but I will get back with you as soon as I can.

Hey Art :P

No sorry I didn't. I was combining this tutorial with another one. So I kinda got caught somewhere between the two and this is what I came up with. I shall go back and do it again using only your animated fire script and post my result.

Thanks for taking the time to look at and comment on my ameteurish creations. I appreiacte it.

Silvertayl :)

Well, it looks nice (I wouldn't call it amateurish!). And, it sounds like you learned something while experimenting with other techniques, and that's what's most important. I just wanted to make sure you didn't go to all the trouble of manually cutting out the text on each layer generated by the fire script. I know how much of a pain that can be....trust me!

Thanks for this tutorial. :) I had some problems in the beginning but now I think I get it.
I have a question though: with transparent background, does it mean it fits any background?? I mean like "see through" ?? :)
Hope you understand me, thanks a million :)

In Gimp, File -> Export file as... to save it as something, I would recommend .png, then go to a website like imgur.com to upload it, then copy and paste the link with
[img]imageurl[/img]
in it to a new post.
