I feel like this tutorial was a bit lacking. For the most part it works, but you assume the reader knows GIMP like the back of their hand. I don't really understand the point of a tutorial that glosses over elements of itself. If I knew how to do everything why would I consult your guide? You don't explain certain elements enough, like the part about adding the rivets. I could not make that part work for the life of me. How do you get GIMP to add circles ? All it did for me was add an outline. I had to hand draw the circles.

I guess all I need is practice, but I can only give this guide a B in terms of helpfulness and clarity.

I couldn't find "text to path" in my (older) version either. I used "Selection from Alpha Channel" in the Layers Dialogue and "Path from Selection" in the selection menu ("Auswahl aus Alphakanal" and "Pfad aus Auswahl" in german i18n).

sehr schön :clap: Leider habe ich immer noch Probleme mit Gimp 2.8 (Wacom Tablett), ich arbeite daher noch mit Gimp 2.6.11, aber ich denke es müsste dort auch funktionieren...

I made a logo a while back. I'd thought about adding a riveted metal plate background. This is perfect! Thanks!
