I used a procedure I found online to create the overlay I use on my episode splash screens for a story I started several months ago. There’s a particular background I use, then I do a new overlay every chapter that contains the episode number and title.
The problem is, I can’t remember what the procedure is called, I didn’t bookmark it, and I only remember how to create a border around my text in a different color. I can’t remember the name of the part of the procedure that’s missing, but am pretty sure I’d recognize it if I saw it.
Here’s an example of an overlay I did previously:
I create the text, make the border, rotate it, but I forget how to get yellow shadowy/hazy looking part. I vaguely remember creating a new layer, changing the size of it, and maybe using a drop shadow and adding the yellow color, but I think there’s other stuff as well. Can anyone point me to a tutorial on how to achieve this effect, ideally in GIMP?
I’ve looked under ‘drop shadow’ but I can’t find anything that is as hazy looking as this is. So there must have been a tweak of some kind that I don’t remember.
This time around, I’ll make sure to bookmark the page!
Thanks a ton,
