I think the animated gifs are a good beneficiary of flat design. If you have a limited number of colours, and you do not use gradients you don't need to use dithered patterns. We are used to see this patterns becouse a lot of people use real video segments as avatars, etc. But in this case you have just some colours, lets say 20 and you have at your ...

No, this is not possible. You aren't the first to suggest this, but it isn't being worked on at the moment: https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=622625

In the tool options for the eraser: Select the first brush (pixel). Select a size of 1. Select hard edge. Then the eraser should do what you want. (Also, do not forget that you need an alpha channel on the respective layer.)

GIMP 2.6.12 is outdated, this might be the cause for your problem. Also, in general, GIMP does not make any promises in regard to the color values of fully transparent pixels, but in this case, and with 2.8.14, I can't reproduce your problem. Loading a TGA file, and pasting the contents of a different TGA file into a layer mask, and then exporting the image ...

In GIMP, alpha channels exist per layer. If you go to the layers dialogue (Ctrl+L), right-click on your layer, there is an item Remove Alpha Channel, which does what you want. If it is greyed out, your layer does not have an alpha channel.

This is not a standard option for image programs,as you found out. GIMP, including GIMP 2.6 however do have such an option, but for .png files (you will be able to see the option for "preserve color information for transparent pixels" on the export to .PNG dialog.) For a TGA file, your options are: editing the TGA file plug-in in GIMP and copy the ...

You can't, yet. In the current development cycle of GIMP (that's 2.9.x, to be released as GIMP 2.10.x) the foundations for non-destructive editing are laid. It is expected to have this in GIMP 3.x.

Verse used to be the solution. I knew several teams that used it, but it seems as if the project has been discontinued. Several people in the GIMP community have talked about resurrecting Verse, or making another collaborative process work out, but I don't think that ever panned out. Good luck finding something. Let us know how it worked out. The GIMP ...

In general: No. When you apply a filter to a text layer in GIMP, you modify its pixels. You will notice that it actually changes it appearance in the layers dialog from a "this is Text"-style icon to the appearance of other layers, that is a small preview of their content. In a very special case: kind of If you are working on an image, and apply some ...

A few of the frames (that's the layers in GIMP, they play from the bottom of the layer stack upwards) in the image got nothing at the animated locations initially. I do not know how you intend this animation to run, but I assume the following: To avoid a gap at the beginning, you should merge the first two frames of each animated area with the background ...

To check whether an image has a alpha channel, you can have a look at the channels dialog in GIMP: Having the RGBA image components in this dialog together with the other channels (think: selection masks) is not absolutely correct. They behave significantly different from the other channels there, but this is like it's ever been and nobody has changed it ...

To add an alpha channel, go to Layer in the top menu, then to Transparency and click Add Alpha Channel. As xiaohan2012 said, you can cut a selection out by pressing Ctrl + x, but you can also just press delete on your keyboard. Hope this helps.

As @Zach-Saucier mentioned it appears there is no single magic shortcut for doing this. However an alternative I found was to create a new view (New->View) and then hide all the grids, guides, selection, etc in that view. Then toggle between the two views.

The straight forward way of doing this in Photoshop is to duplicate layer 16 times and set the 15 topmost layers mode to Linear Dodge (Add). The easiest way to do this is to use Filter → Other -> Custom... with: 16 in central box all others 0 or nonexistent and scale of 1. Same procedure works in gimp. 16 times error means that each pixel is blown to ...

You can view the default keyboard shortcuts and see that Shift+Ctrl+T toggles the guides and Shift+Ctrl+R toggles the rulers. There are many others, but I can't find one that removes them all in one command (other than going full screen using F11). If you want to change the keyboard commands so they're the same as PS's, you can use this library to make them ...
