Text de fantasia

Quatre textos artístics creats amb els scripts dels logotips: Neó estil Àlien, pell de vaca, gebre i guix. Es va utilitzar la configuració per defecte, excepte per a la mida de les lletres tipogràfiques.


There are many things you can do to vary the appearance of text beyond just rendering it with different fonts or different colors. By converting a text item to a selection or a path, you can fill it, stroke the outlines, transform it, or generally apply the whole panoply of GIMP tools to get interesting effects. As a demonstration of some of the possibilities, try out the "logo" scripts at FileCreateLogos.

[Nota] Nota

This Logos item no longer exists in GIMP-2.10.10. But many scripts are still available in https://download.gimp.org/mirror/pub/gimp/extras.

Each of these scripts allows you to enter some text, and then creates a new image showing a logo constructed out of that text. If you would like to modify one of these scripts, or construct a logo script of your own, the Using Script-Fu and Script-Fu Tutorial sections should help you get started. Of course, you don't need Script-Fu to create these sorts of effects, only to automate them.
