Creating a Header using GIMP

Hi All,

I'm creating a header, trying to blend the image with the rest of the gradient like Aletta in video 4.2 (15:20), except I'm restricted to using GIMP.

Anyone know how to do it?

Hi Gotham,
You should be able to use the blur tool.
It would be a long post if I wrote it all out here but you can search Google for
"blending with Gimp"
Here is one you tube video I found.. ... re=related
some of the online tutorials are really good for beginners.

If you look in the different gradients you can do, you should be able to find one that does FG to Transparent. Do that gradient on a separate layer or you can do a FG to BG on a mask layer.
