There is no automatic way, such as you're looking for. At least, not to my knowledge. You could have a go at it with the clone or healing tool, which can yield ok results. Select the healing brush. Set it to hardness 025 and size 30. ctrl-click next to the line. Draw over the line. Optional: fix things a bit with blur brush. Although this can yield ...

If you create a layer group and move both layers there, then you can duplicate that layer group. Depending on your workflow, layer groups might be a major improvement for other tasks as well, because you can e.g. switch their visibility more easily than that of all the layers they contain. You can't move layer groups and their layers yet, unfortunately - ...

Some effects like blur can not be applied on indexed formats. You will have to change the image mode to RGB first. In Gimp this is done by selecting Image > Mode > RGB from the top menu bar.

Gimp 2.8 does have a Gradient Map just like Photoshop. It is under Color > Map > Gradient Map. Open your image in Gimp. Make a second layer underneath and fill it with the color you want to show through, in this case a blue or purple color. Then with your top image selected, hit the Gradient Map. You might want to make the top image high-contrast ...

Adding a drop shadow improved the overal "feeling" for me - but it might break the exact effect you intend, as it makes the whole thing easy to spot in an automatic way (without one having to stare at the picture until find counciously what the letters are). I also remade the concept by creating the stripes with the grid filter ...

In path edit mode we can add another node by Ctrl + left-click on the location we want it to be. Note that this will convert the straight line to a curve. To make it straight lines again we have to drag the node's handles onto the node.

What I did, was make sure to download the transparent PNG version of the logo (if a transparent version is not available, you will just have to manually select the text/shapes) and import into Gimp. I then created a new layer, and used the brush tool to make it solid red. Then I desaturated the PNG logo until it was grey scale, like this (I hid the red layer ...

As put in the comment, this is a workload that will require scripting GIMP - although it can be done in a more or less interactive way (as individual images need separate treatment, that may actually be needed). If you check Filters->Python->Console you willget an interactive Python console, from which you can interact with GIMP - and if you want a ...

Ok, let's try to write an answer... 0. Some technical background Many image file formats can actually preserve the color values of transparent pixels. PNG, TIFF, TGA, BMP are among them, as well as the working formats of most (or more likely all) serious image manipulation applications. You can think of pixels as being colored and transparent according to ...

Yes, that would be very easy, I just opened up Gimp 2 my self and tried it out to make sure! :p Anyway, in the layers panel, right click and choose New Layer. Then make sure you select White for the Layer Fill Type. Now, click OK and move the new white layer to the bottom of all the current layers. To change the layer color, select it and just paint ...

I believe what you need is to clip your image (clipping is using a path to cut and define the shape of another path or image). In order to do this select both the object and the clipping path. The clipping path must be above the object to be clipped in z-order. Then use the Object → Clip → Set command. To unclip a clipped object, select the object and ...

If you are really interested in recoloring and not in the transformation of any sort, then standard technique is to use a "Color" mode for a layer that sets the colors. So, in the back layer you put the 32x32 image with correct details, but wrong colors. On top of it in the separate layer you take a 16x16 image with correct colors. Then rescale it to 32x32 ...

There are various plugins for Gimp that include old or poor photo effects to be obtained with a single filter action. The probably most comprensive collection of filters come with the G'MIC plugins. From the many effects avaliable the filter Degradations > Lomo or the filters Faded Analog or Vinatge from the Film Emulation set may come close to the effect ...

In this case, as was already said, you would want to add another line segment in the same path to "manually" connect the nodes. The provided method involves creating a second path and them merging the two. An easier solution is to simply find the relevant path in the path dialog, right click it, and select "Path Tool" from the context menu: Then, click ...
