Part 2- GIMP Brushes Web SitesIt's been a while since the first part of the series. That's why I have cleaned up a little and tweaked the first article as well. Like I wrote in part 1:"Unfortunately good GIMP resources are rare on the Net. Most links end in 404-Errors, Domain parking pages or "Made for AdSense" sites." It hasn't changed. :)
Following on from falldown's GIMP tutorial on a glass text effect, I've used the method to produce some effects for a GIMP splash screen.If you d/l the image, resize it to whatever you want, and put it in /user/.gimp-2.x/splashes (create the directory if it doesn't exist).
