CU Licenses

This tutorial is of my own creation and any resemblance to any other tuts is purely coincidental. This tutorial is for personal use only, using it for monetary gain is against our TOU's. Supplies Needed: ~Gimp (any version will do). ~Tube of choice. I used the artwork of Michael Calandra, you must have a license to use this art which you can get @ PTE HERE. ~Rockstar FTU scrapkit by Alikas Scraps which you can get HERE. ~Mask of choice. I used Bling Mask By Ella 5 which you can get from Creative Misfits HERE. ~Font of choice. I used Sick Capital Vice. Let's get started!!!!! 1. Open a new layer ( I prefer a large canvas, so I make mine 1050x656). Make your canvas transparent (Layer > Transparency > Color to alpha). 2. Open as17 (round frame), add drop shadow (Filters > Light & Shadow > Drop Shadow). 3. Open Paper 5 center it behind frame, remove excess paper using a cutting tool or eraser. 4. Open as10 (filmstrip frame), I tilted the frame slightly using the Rotate tool in the Tool Box. Add drop shadow. 5. Open Paper 1 center it behind filmstrip frame, remove excess paper using a cutting tool or eraser. 6. Open tubes. I used both a full body tube and a close-up. ~Take the full body layer and move it (in your layer box) under the filmstrip, but above the paper. Change the Mode on the tube to Hardlight (at the top of your Layer Box you will see where it says Mode, click the arrow and select Hardlight from the drop down menu). Remove excess tube layer using a cutting tool or eraser. ~Add drop shadow to the close-up tube. 7. Open and place the following elements: as24 as32 as34 as41 as42 as44 as45 as46 as47 as51 as52 as64 ~Some elements may need to be sized down. Using the Scale Tool in your tool box adjust pixels to desired size~ ~Add drop shadow to all elements~ 8. Open Paper 10. 9. Open mask. 10. Add mask to paper (click HERE for a tut on using masks). 11. Merge layers (Image > Merge Visible Layer). 12. Crop image (Image > Autocrop Image). 13. Scale image to desired size (Image > Scale Image). 14. Add copyright info and name. 15. Save as .png You are finished :)
