How to Make Gradient Text on Photoshop: 5 EASY STEPS!

**NOTE: May work with other programs. I have not tested it, but this is mainly for Photoshop**

step 1:
type your text. this may work better/be more noticeable with a bolder font

step 2:
go to layers>new layer>hit "ok"

step 3:
go to the gradients tool and choose a gradient. place it across your layer

step 4:
press CTRL-G

step 5;
save it[:

Depending on the gradient you used, it should look something like the one in my signature.
Enjoy!

When I try it, the gradient goes over the whole thing and covers the text so I can't see it. Help?

1) What program are you using?

2) Did you create a new layer?

1. I'm using GIMP. I would use my brother's PhotoShop, but it goes uber slow

2. Yes, I made a new layer

I think it might be because I'm using GIMP. =|
