    nice work mate :) i think you got the glare shapes better than mine the only thing i would advise is try to get the middle a little lighter.

    keep up the good work!

    Re: ADVANCE ORB

    thanks for the advice. it took so long to make the background glare things for some reason. i just had to merge all the orb layers to move it.
    im going to try to finish the "mac style wallpaper" tomorrow cuz im done today

    overlay is the blend mode, its found on the layers dialog at the top, where it should say normal.

    Not quite what you might have intended, but I did use each thing you said and created my own outcome.
    Thanks, I can really see myself using this tut often.

    I'm going through it now. One suggestion I'd like to make is, in the introduction to the tutorial, you state the version of GIMP you're using and on what operating system platform. There are differences in how to locate tools as well as the "look and feel" of GIMP depending on those two variables. Just a thought. ;)

    Ok, I'm attaching my final result. I followed the tutorial as written, so no surprises.

    EDIT, well that didn't work.
