    I found that rounder edged texts look better in this, like "Space Age"

    It would look better without the background.

    Good tutorial overall, although I didn't read the whole thing.

    Yes sir. Can you translate into GIMP terms, FirenIce? If not can someone else pm me the text translated into GIMP to me, and pictures if you really want to spend time on it. If you don't want to PM the tutorial to me, just post it in this form.
