    Hi,

    Like 3 years ago I was probably bored and tired to be creative. ( which ended up with bad results :) )

    Anyway I believe I had GIMP that time. And created this image as a background.

    Today I was thinking about that image but couldnt remember how I had created such an effect.

    Can anyone help me?

    Looks kind of like an Illustrator Spiral. I don't know GIMP.

    Go to this link and click on the tutorial. The next page (tutorial) is not in English, but the bottom of the page has a link to the GIMP plug-in you need. It looks like a Windows .exe, but I didn't look around for a Mac.

    This thread's title is gold. I thought it was going to be some sort of quiz...

    Ahhh.... another Gimp user!

    Here's how you did it:
    1)Select gradient
    2)In gradient, select Gradient>Neon Green
    3)in Shape, select Spiral(CW)/Spiral(CCW)

    then drag a small gradient in and bob's your uncle!

    hope this helps!
