A rather simple method to darken parts of an image only would be to apply the Blend Tool with a white to black soft gradient in Subtract blend mode. We can also play with settings for opacity to fine tune the desired effect. Linear Blend, Subtract Mode, 70% Opacity Radial Blend, Subtract Mode, 70% Opacity To add even more dramatic effects, and to ...

In my opinion current Gimp versions (2.8) doesn't allow multiple layers selection, you can group or chain them (see also this question), but this is not the same thing, and you can't change at once the color of grouped of chained text boxes. A fast way to change is the following: 1. Select a text layer 2.-3. Drag the color from the Toolbox color and ...

As far as I can see, it's not the alpha channel that is the problem. The real problem is simply that you have created a text layer which is larger than your current canvas size and GIMP will only show that part which is visible within the canvas. Just do Image > Fit Canvas to Layers to automatically re-size the canvas large enough to include your text ...

On selecting an area we can cancel the selection using the ESC key until this selection was converted into a selection mask. In above example we already had a rectangular selection where we are about to add another elliptical selection. At this time we can cancel the elliptical selection using ESC, as expected. The reason why Gimp uses another key ...

This is real easy in gimp. You unoptimize the gif to reveal all pixel data in layers (filters/animation/unoptimize). Delete the layers, 2 first in your case, then optimize it again (filters/animation/optimize for gif) Export as gif, tick the animation box.

Change the foreground-color to black. Create a new File and expand the "advanced Options" and select "Foreground-Color" in the "Fill with" - Dropdown. Create a new tranparent layer by selecting "Transparency" in the Layer Fill Type. Move the background-layer (the black one) above the transparent one and enter 80% in the transparency-control. ...

Have you tried this: use the Magic Wand tool and click the empty area that you want filled with the gradient. There should be a dashed line inside the area. Switching over to the Blend Tool Pick your gradient Apply gradient by clicking and dragging inside your selection, see image

You can fill-in the holes in the outline by doing: Select-by-Color (click on black outline) Select > Grow (1px) Select > Shrink (1px) Bucket-Fill (whole selection) with black Unfortunately, in this particular case, this will still leave a rather jagged outline because your earlier thresholding to remove the background has also removed all the ...

If you're willing to be a little adventurous, you could try the development version, GIMP 2.9. The old IWarp plugin has been replaced with an on-canvas Warp Transform tool which works in much the same way, but with a full on-canvas preview. And you can turn-down the opacity of the layer you're warping to allow lower layer(s) to show through, or even change ...
