This tutorial is a continuation of my previous one found
HERE

Image

This is a tutorial on making three lines of text with separate glitter for each line. Refer to my previous tutorial for how to use the glitter patterns and a link to Saulgoode's combine background script.

1. Start with a New Layer 600x300. Use a Font of your choice.

2. Make 3 Lines of text and make sure you space your lines with enough room to select each line with the rectangle select tool :rectsel .

3. Center your text manually like this.

4. Right click your text layer---> Lock transparency
Image

5. Click eye next to layer to turn off and make invisible.
Double click the layer and name it #1.
I will be working with 3 sparkle files so that means we will need 3 layers.
Duplicate :dupe the text layer twice to make your 3 layers...they will be
called #1, #2 and #3.

6. Select bottom layer, alpha to selection, #1, turn on visibility-->Use the Rectangle tool to select top layer, #3 text.
Use bucket tool, OR drag your first sparkle pattern into this layer. Turn on
#2 layer and drag your second sparkle into this layer. Turn on your #3
layer and drag your 3rd sparkle into that layer.

YOUR ARE NOW FINISHED WITH YOUR TOP LAYER

7. Turn off the visibility of #2 and #3, Click layer #1 to select. With your rectangle select tool, select your middle text the same way you did with your top layer and select another sparkle pattern, group of three.

8. Now using a new set of sparkles, Select bottom layer, #1, turn on visibility-->Use the Rectangle :rectsel tool to select middle layer, #1 text.
Use bucket tool, OR drag your first sparkle pattern into this layer. Turn on
#2 layer and drag your second sparkle into this layer. Turn on your #3
layer and drag your 3rd sparkle into that layer.

9. Use bucket tool, OR drag your first sparkle pattern into this layer. Turn on
#2 layer and drag your second sparkle into this layer. Turn on your #3
layer and drag your 3rd sparkle into that layer.

If your are not going to use a background, delete your bg layer. Then you are done.

If you prefer a background, fill your bg layer with whatever you want. I prefer something very plain so it won't take away from your sparkle patterns.
Run the sg-combine background, then delete bottom bg layer.

If you have any questions, please post back here to this thread.
Molly

This looks very nice, Molly. I have not done much with animations, so I will give it a try tonight.

I've done this previously using an animation merge script which takes away the shifting of layers

There is a link to sg-combine background at the top of the first tute. Here it is. It also includes the overlay background.
http://gimpscripts.com/2011/10/combineo ... ackground/
I am not sure what you did wrong on the tute. After you select your line with the select tool, you put a glitter in each layer, three layers, three glitters. Then you start over with another set of glitters, a different color. then do the third line.

Molly, can you tell me what font you used for this tutorial?...thanks.
Even though I'm not Molly, I do know what the font is. It's TWELVE TON GOLDFISH.

To get the uneven characters, turn on the Caps Lock key.

You did not duplicate your text layer properly, the color on the first lie of text should be the same on all 3 layers end the second line of text should have the same color on all 3 layers e.t.c. for each line of text[/align]
as in example below↓
