Thanks Molly and Drac. Step 30 had me stumped. I thought it must have been my stupidity but now I know it was Drac's. :hehe

I got side-tracked but here is a simplistic version of step 30 showing the darkened background using the black layer like a mask without affecting the text. The XCF attached is a quick throw together to illustrate how the layer is used and the Opacity is set a bit darker on the black "Mask" layer.

i must be really inattentive, because i completely missed what step 30 actually said! i did what we were supposed to do (made a black layer with opacity pulled down and the text (or in my case the paisley) masked and now when i went back and checked the pdf i was really surprised to see it read just like molly quoted it. so possibly the people who didn't have any problems with step 30 were not smarter than you, molly, but just more inattentive and lazy readers, just like me :) .

Let's don't go there OK? The visual of a ruptured yak is rather distasteful at best. :scram

I have just downloaded your tutorial and I'm having a problem with step 13. "Inner Shadow".

I have used both gimp 2.6 and 2.8 and I do not have a "Layer effects" sub-menu under "Layer"

Am I doing something wrong?
