Thanks a ton! I've been looking for a tutorial on how to do a cardboard texture, and what's cool is, it only takes a couple little tweaks here and there to make it work for GIMP 2.10.28, mainly playing around with the bump map settings (mostly if you're doing a large image).

I did what you said but got confused halfway and made this instead.
istarlome's avatar
that looks great! so where did you get confused?

I believe step 3. The background copy didnt show through the plasma layer. So I decided to mess with the opacity and just play around in gimp with my known knowledge and I created this. It's a wallpaper for an iPhone theme i'm creating.

I also went to that link. It helped but it didnt show up the same as the tutorial.
Thanks for this tut, I only got half way and it looked so cool as corduroy fabric that I left it there (I use it to make items in I will try the complete tut another day.

I saw them :) I've been having trouble with my internet for the better part of a week. I've been trying to keep up on reading the posts, but when it takes 5 mins to load a single page (after 6 white screens), I gave up on trying to comment :D
My internet seems to be better now though! yay!
