    I just need one quick answer please, as to whether or not I can do this in GIMP.

    It's to make an effect like in this image, with the lines going across it. Not necessarily going diagonally, but the lines themselves...I'd like to know how also please, if it's possible. Also, is there a special name for that effect or something? I like it [​IMG]

    Oh, yea..this is the image [a brawl sig]:

    GIMP used to come with a script-fu/python-fu that did that. No clue whats its called anymore though.

    I believe you can do it using a transparent layer of the image with the diagonal lines..

    ...
    ......It worked!!! [​IMG] [kinda, looks a bit different..but pretty similar]

    YAY! Thank you! I'm working on a new sig..so I needed that. Thanks [​IMG]
    Whenever I use it though, it makes my normal image WAY brighter..like it changes the colors completely. Any way around that?

    Hard for me to describe this but:
    1. in photoshop make a new layer
    2. make an 2x2 pixel white square
    3. draw a black line at the bottom of the square
    4. select the square but pressing ctrl (I think, could be alt) on the layer in the layer pallette
    5. in the main menu bar go Edit>Define Pattern and then hit enter
    6. fill that layer with white
    7. use the fill tool (the bucket), change the fill from foreground to pattern, and select your pattern
    8. use the bucket on the white layer
    9. change the layer to multiply or screen (whatever your want)
