First of all please visit the HP above.

Question No1: In the Tutorials you will seet the part "This is your second image. It contains a blurred copy of the first image [Gaussian Blur (IIR) 8x8]. It should be greyscale.(It is right of blured "Love" whith black background.
ª
Does it mean open a new Untitled-1.0 window by doing File/New?
Not a new layer?(This question is similar to the former topic.)
If we get a greyscale image we need another Untitled-1.0window.

The problem should be solved before moving to the nest step.
I would very appreciate if someone explain the part including the former topic problems.

First of all GUG has a great library of tutorial, I will learn from them too.
It is self explanatory, and definitely you have to open a new layer not new image I am sure.

Thank you for replying my question.
Yes.
"Open a new somethng" means " a new layer".
If we open a new image by doing File/New,we will not be able to doing lighting effects with a gold texture.

Yes becuase, opening a new image for doing rest of operations meant to generate results as single output does not make sense actually. So is create new layer.

Thank you very much.

Now I am following the HP above.

1.Create a new image(File/New) and fill it black and type with white "Love".
Then merge down a letter layer and a black back ground.(Even though it was not written.BUt if not do it, we can't create the first image as shown in the HP.I named the first layer as "layer mask " to understand easily.)

2.Then I duplicate the "layer mask " and bulured the layer.I named "bulured text".

3.Create a new layer (In my case, a transparent layer) and make a gold texture as shown the Tutorial.Concrete procedure is in the HP.
http://www.home.unix...imp/golden.html

4.Then create a new white layer above the gold layer.

5.Active the gold layer.Do an -Filters-Light Effects-Lighting Effects.... Activate "Use Bump Mapping" and "Use Environment Mapping". Select the apropriate images.(I selected the bulured text layer.)

Now I am confused No4's procedure.I don't know what purpose of it?
And the place of creating a new layer.
It is not wiitten? above the gold layer is OK?

My bumped "Love" is different from the tutorial's image as shown the HP.
My work is darker than the Tutotials.
I don't know what is wrong.

Even though I ignore the color of my bumped text.
I dont know how to delete the gold background ( transparent background and gold letter.)as shown the Tutorials.(It is placed almost the belowest part in the HP.)

I would like you or somebody to tell me how to Add a layer mask and paste our first image in it like the Tutorial.

Simply rightclick the layer in the Layers Tab and click Add Layer Mask, then you will be shown a dialog where you can initialize layer mask to.

I hope it helps.

I have followed the instruction above.

Now I am ready to add a layer mask.right click/Add Layer Mask.
When doing it,which layer can I right click/Add Layer Mask?

My current layer stack is as follows.

4.a white image with no letter.just a white canvas. (why it is needed?)
3.gold background which was bump-mapped.
2.black background and white letter,which is blured.
1.black background and white letter.

Please tell me the number(4.3,2,1).

(I don't know why there is a white image.I don't know the purpose.I just follow the author's instruction.)

I have read entire tutorial, and could not understand. It is for the gimp users who have already been using it since 2 years, not for beginners.

Sory cant help in this regards.

I suggest yo uread the free book, and find the bump map topic.

Hello,

I struggled with the bumpmapping at first and still do but I did find a good tutorial here @ the Gimp site http://www.gimp.org/...als/The_Basics/. Of corse in this Tutorial you can choose to use a gold background rather than the plasma they use!

Best thing in jen's tutorials is steps are very clear and detailed.

Well, here's my take on the author's tutorial. I think it's pretty accurate. Let me know if I've missed a step or if I'm not clear. Hope this helps.

Happy GIMPing!
