|Winter time means snow and ice time. This tutorial helps you to give your logos, your homepage etc. the icy glow.|
|Create a new image with your text like shown here.|
|Use <Image>-Transforms-Rotate-90 degrees to rotate the picture 90 degrees. This is needed to use the wind filter.|
|Apply the wind filter (<Image>-Distorts-Wind...). Select right direction and leading edge affected. A strengh of 5 should be sufficient for most purposes.|
|Rotate your result 270 degrees (<Image>-Transforms-Rotate-90 degrees). Your image should look like this. Duplicate the layer.|
|The lower layer should be blurred now (<Image>-Filters-Blur-Gaussian Blur(IIR)... with x=y=4).|
|Go to <Image>-Colors-Levels and set the output level for red to 0 and the output level for green to 191.|
|Now return to the uppermost layer. Set its mode to "Addition". Blur it (<Image>-Filters-Blur-Gaussian Blur(IIR)... with x=y=2).
That'a all! Crop your image and have fun!
