Text Effect 1: LIGHT RAYS

One of my favourite text effects.

1) Start of by doing some white text on a black background. Then make a copy of the white text layer(for later use) and merge the other text with the background.

2) Now go Filter > Distorts > Polar Coordinates and apply it. Be sure to deselect the To polar option.

3) Then rotate it by 90 degrees clockwise with Shift+R.

4) Apply Filter > Distorts > Wind from the Right. Repeat if necessary.

5) Again hit Shift+R and do counter-clockwise with -90 degrees.

6) Now again do Polar Coordinates but this time select To polar. Also playing with the circle depth gives different effects. Experiment.

7) The RESULT so far.

8.) Then apply Filter > Blur > Motion Blur in Zoom mode. Repeat if necessary.

9) Time for applying color, use Colors > Color Balance

10) Now select the white text copy layer and do Alpha to Selection either by right click or from Layer menu.

11) While leaving the selection intact, create a new transparent layer and do a foreground fill with Black from Edit menu.

12) Again with the selection intact, Grow it by 1~2 px from the Selection menu, do a new transparent layer again and do a background fill with White.

13) If required, position these layers according to the effect using the Move tool and also stack them in the Layers palette.

14) Finally, Play with it all you want. I duplicated the rays layer, flipped it, reduced its opacity and put it on Screen mode. That's it. The Final RESULT :)

15) Use it on something like this.

Select the gradient tool and draw a line in the direction you want the gradience to go on the image.

All the borders are round but since only the upper one has a color shade it appears so. To get colored shades again use gradient together with blur settings.

Create a mask on that "shadow" and then use the gradient tool on it. The mode to be used is FG to Transparent.

Re: !!.:GIMP~art:.!!

Well that's a gradient I guess, make a new transparent layer, put white as foreground color, select the gradient tool, mode as FG to transparent and drag from the top tight corner and adjust the layer blend mode in the layer palette.
