@ God Of The Red Moon,
Yes, the 3D look is rather cool. I am going to add to the tutorial as I have found some great other methods also on making a userbar instead of just using scanlines. Oh, I also made an 'Animate Your Userbar' tutorial. It can be found here.

these are the other ones I did afterward
I dont know if the images showed up but how do you do three color gradients??If you dont know what i mean look on page 2

By default, I don't think GIMP comes with the option of a 3 colour gradient (i.e.: with colours you can specify yourself), though if you look though the gradients dialogue then you'll find something similar with 3 colours. Failing that, you could make your own or download some (don't ask me where from because the default gradients have been enough for me)

Maybe you should post this question in the General Help area of the forum. More members would see it there and you would get an answer quicker and from a far more wiser user.

I think you mean "How do I get the image to have a transparent background". I this case, it has to be a .PNG image with no background. It is more commonly called a 'render'. The image of Wilbur (the GIMP mascot thing on my tutorial) is a .PNG image with no background. Save it and open it in GIMP and you will see lots of checkerboard patterens behind it. This means its transparent. To make you own images like this, I like to follow this tutorial.
