I needed an image for the post, and quickly turned to The Gimp to create it. And it was easy!
I first went to Deviant Art and downloaded lighting brushes for Gimp. You can get those here.
Extract the file and drop it into your /.gimp/brushes folder.
Then, Open Gimp, select the brush tool, scroll down the brush tool menu and select a lighting bolt. Adjust the color and size and click the mouse on your canvass. You've just created a lighting bolt!
Use a dark solid color as a background so the lighting effect stands out. For added effect, I used a dark gradient.
Get Linux, Get Gimp, get creative!
