Create a new layer with a width of 10px and a transparent background. Select your new layer and use the Grid rendering tool (Filters->Render->Pattern->Grid...).I used these settings: Pay particular attention to the Horizontal Lines width of 5, and Spacing of 20. Making the vertical line width 0 keeps them from being drawn so vertical line spacing ...

Here are the steps I took: Duplicate the base layer and select the copy. Apply an edge detect filter (Filters -> Edge-Detect -> Edge...) using these settings: My goal here is to get clear contrast between my object and my background. I found Sobel worked the best and simply fiddled until I got this result. Threshold the colors (Colors -> Threshold...) ...

Therefore repair tools will have a hard time to separate artifacts from important parts. For the removal of lines we can try with G'Mic > Repair > Unstrip filter of the Grey's Magic Tools plugin which ...

As was said in another answer, the default behavior of the move tool, is to select whatever visible element is under the cursor. This means that if one clicks on a transparent part of a layer, something beneath it will be moved. One way to avoid this problem is to switch the tool mode to only moving the active layer. This way, no matter where you click in ...

DigiKam and Gimp are applying slightly different algorithms to their rendering of the image. Without testing, it's impossible to say which one (or both) is in error, but that is certainly the case. If the contrast levels match when one is set to use Perceptual and the other Relative Colorimetric rendering, then the most likely explanation is that one of ...
