Text from eHow – How to Make a Web Page Header in Gimp
1 Create a new workbook by selecting “File” and “New.” A “Create a New Image” pop-up box will appear, allowing you to enter the settings of your choice. A typical header can be anywhere between 700 and 900 pixels wide and 75-200 pixels high. Click on the “Plus Sign” icon to reveal “Advanced Options” and set the X and Y resolutions to 100 pixels per inch.
2 Color the background, if desired. You can locate the “Bucket Fill Tool” in the main toolbar to fill the entire background, or you can insert a picture or design to embellish the header. To insert a pre-made graphic, select “File” and “Open as Layers” to locate your file; select the image and press “Open.”
3 Insert text by clicking on the “Text Tool” icon in the main toolbar. Click on the header where you want to type, and enter in your content. Within the toolbar will appear the text settings, letting you choose the font, size and color of your words. If you want to have a large title and a smaller subtitle in your header, consider inserting two separate text boxes so you can customize each line.
4 Use the “Move Tool” in the main toolbar to position everything as you wish. View the “Layers” dialog by selecting “Windows,” “Dockable Dialogs,” and then “Layers.” In the Layers window, select the thumbnail of the layer you want to move. With the “Move Tool” selected, click on the image itself and use your keyboard arrows to nudge your text or graphics up or down, right or left.
5 Save your header using a picture file extension that your web page will support such as “.png” or “.jpg.” You may also wish to save the file using GIMP’s workbook extension “.xcf” in order to make future edits as needed.
Tips …
If you want to give your header a solid border, simply click on the “Select” tab and choose “All.” Click on “Select” again and choose “Border.” Insert the number of pixels you want your border to be and press “OK.” Click on the “Bucket Fill Tool” and then click inside the border selection to fill the border. If desired, before you click inside the border, click on the “Foreground Color” box in the main toolbar to view the “Change Foreground Color” window. You can select the color you want and press “OK.”
If you choose X and Y resolutions of less than 100 pixels per inch, your final header will be smaller than the pixel or inch size you selected. For example, a 5-in. wide header will become the equivalent of a 4-in. one at 80 pixels per inch.
