Stuff You Need For Tutorial!!!
Layer Effects Scripts - http://registry.gimp.org/node/186
Dots & Holes Patterns - http://www.megaupload.com/?d=YGSWAW14

NOTE: If you have any trouble trying to follow my instructions on how to create this text effect feel free to download, and look at the project file I created so it's easier to understand.

First off go ahead, and add some text to your document.
Right click the text layer, and select "Alpha to Selection".
Then head to Select/Shrink I shrunk mine by 4 pixels, but you can choose how much you want yours shrunk.

Now make sure you copy what's selected on your text right now, then hit delete.

Now paste what you just copied into a new layer.
Right click the pasted layer, and select alpha to selection.
Then make a new layer, name it dots, and then fill it with one of the dot patterns I created, that you can download from the link at the top of this tutorial. (I used the "Dots 15px")

Now change the layer name for the border of your text to "border".
Posted Image

Now the 3 layers we now have for the text we want to give them a bevel, so head to Script-Fu/Layer Effects/Bevel and Emboss... and change it to an inner bevel.

Now your image should look like this.

Now go ahead, and crop the text down, and you we are now done however I want to give this text a little twist, so if you'd like to go along with me feel free if not, drop down, and give me 20 lol Just kidding. Anyway go ahead, and merge the bevels together (just the black, and white layers), for example the border will be merged to it's own layer, the holes to it's own layer, and the inner text part in it's own layer.

Then duplicate the text border bevel you just merged, and then invert the holes so it looks like it has a bunch of dents.

You're final result should now look something like this.

I can't get the dots and holes patterns either. Get a 404 with the website.

Since the dots pattern isn't accessible until mikedk4 gets the path fixed, I made my own dots.

Here is mine.

Sorry for the error earlier. It should be fixed for now, but vistapanel, hasn't responded to my email, to notify me of why that happend. Anyway instead of heading to
http://gimpvideoeffects.isgreat.org/dow ... dholes.zip

to download the file right away, go to
http://gimpvideoeffe....org/downloads/

and then look for dotsandholes.zip and download it that way.

I still can't find the zip file. I get a bunch of advertising on both links and can't find the file.

I think I'm being hijacked or something.

compliment to Oregonian for the adaptive skill
about mikethedj4 now that he fixed the link we may move the tut because effect is nice and explained clearly

But after you duplicate the effect i suggest to do as Oregonian did for necessity..try some variations , experiment on that mainlines...
