One way of doing it is to use the clone tool(). This tool basically lets you choose a source to copy from, then use it like a brush to paint the source over the destination. To select a source, press Ctrl+Left Click with the cursor over the source, then you can begin drawing over the destination. In this case, you have to make sure that the source is a ...

You may use edit → paste as → new layer; that will immediately add the pasted content as a new layer. You can of course change the shortcut binding of Ctrl + V to call paste as new layer instead of ordinary paste. You can either go through the “traditional” menu shortcut editor, or enable the preferred method of dynamic keyboard shortcuts (edit → ...

I am doing this in Photoshop but the process would be the same in GIMP. Create a circle Create the divider line. This will be used to subtract from the circle. I then duplicated the layer and rotated the object. In total this is 4 objects (1 vertical, 1 horizontal and 2 angled lines). I rotated using Photoshop's smart snap but you can just rotate the ...

The whole idea behind Cumulative (Combine) is to cut down the size of the file by eliminating the parts that don't change and keeping the bits that do. If you want to go the Replace route (and I can't imagine why, but okay), make a copy of the first layer and merge the copy with the next layer up. Then make a copy of the new layer and merge that with the ...

It is possible without duplicating the layer. You can do the following. On the layer you want to fill, select the area you want to fill. You can use the fuzzy select tool() for this. Create a new transparent layer and use the bucket fill tool() to fill the selected area by clicking within that area. The result is a new layer with just the color ...

Unfortunately GIMP does not support adding a layer mask to a layer group. Layer Masks can only apply to a single layer. The closest work around is to create the layer mask you want on a single layer, then copy it to the other layers. Add the layer mask to the layer (Right click -> Add Layer Mask) Configure the layer mask as desired, such as adding a ...

Yeah it seems a little screwed up. You can go to Image>Print Size and change the resolution to the value you want. This doesn't change the size of the image just the dpi setting (which will affect the print size). Then scale the image to the size you want but don't change the resolution settings. If scale image doesn't work go to Image>Canvas Size to resize. ...
