GIMP: Text to Path tutorial

Share/Bookmark

Here's in one simple way to create a text following a specific path in GIMP.







Step 1
Create a path using path tool




Step 2
Type your text using text tool





Step 3
Style your text accordingly. Please note that you can't change the style of your text once you make it follow a path. Finalize your text style before moving to step 4, or you might have to start over from step 3 again




Step 4
On the text tool, click on 'Text along path'




Step 5
Now, from path tool, select 'Path to selection'






Step 6
Create a new layer. In paths dialog box, hide the path so you can see a sharp selection around the path. Also hide/delete the text layer since we're not going to need it anymore






Step 7
Fill the new layer with any colour you like. Here i use full spectrum gradient




Step 8
We're basically done. Here's how your text is going to look like




Step 9
You can play around to give your text a better look. If you need to change your text style, start again from step 3
















See you again in the next tutorial :)
