Hi guys! In this tutorial I will show you how to create a really cool and super easy typographic image in Gimp!

First choose a base image which you would like to convert to a typographic image (you can use the image below if you like it), and open it in Gimp.

1

Select “Text” and draw a text box as big as your image. Write a text inside the text box and copy it over and over until you have filled the whole image.

2.3

Position the cursor on the text layer, and right – click—> Alpha to selection to select all the letters of  the text.

3

Return to the image and click on Select —> Invert to select everything apart from the text.

4

Go now on layers, position the cursor on the Tower of Pisa and click on canc. Then hide the text layer and click on Selection —> Nothing. This should be the result:

5

Colors —> Luminosity and contrast and set luminosity to 0 and contrast to 66.

6

Create a new grey ( #858585 ) layer below the text draw. This will be the final outcome:
