Split Text color

Hi

Does anybody know if I can get this effect in GIMP? If yes how can I achieve this?

Example 1 (Text Color ICE CUBE) https://www.music-bazaar.com/album-images/vol1/67/67387/466044-big/Death-Certificate-cover.jpg

Example 2 (Photoshop example but same idea) https://www.photoshopessentials.com/photoshop-text/text-effects/how-to-create-split-color-text-in-photoshop/

Thanks!

Thanks!

A few ways for this: Assuming you know the basics of Gimp (making layers etc), one way is:

A small layer for the text(s) background. On this layer:

Make a selection around the text for the color split.

Pull in a horizontal (the split position) and a vertical guide.

Apply a FG to BG (Hard Edge) gradient to split the selection.

Onto the Text layer, Enable the Alpha lock to keep the transparency

Apply the gradient in the opposite direction to previous.

Turn off selection, etc.
