This is my first attempt at seriously using Gimp. I am more of a front end developer slash developer myself and I have only used Gimp or Photoshop for very basic stuff such as removing backgrounds, cropping. So this the first time I want to do more and as I am planning on ditching PS I am trying to work with Gimp. Please see attached image
It shows simple rounded buttons with nice inner shades and a beveled background as well as inlaid text. How in Gimp do I:
- Create this
shadegradient effect on the button?
- Do the
inlaid/embossedinset text effect?
- Make the button background with the inset lines?
Thanks in advance for your help!
