From the Inkscape wiki FAQ: There is a limitation in the way Inkscape imports raster/bitmap images (e.g JPEG, PNG, TIFF images): it cannot read the image resolution. Inkscape assumes a 1-to-1 relation at 90dpi, so any imported image with a different resolution will appear to be scaled. That explains the difference in size you are seeing: 600px at ...

You could select a channel instead of a layer (that is usually a major problem actually). One functionality that creates a new channel, and move the focus to it is Select->Save to channel - it works regardless of an active selection existing or not.

The Gimp paths are sequences of cubic Bezier curves. Assuming your curve is defined with only two anchors and two tangents, you can easily write the equivalent equation if you have the coordinates of these four points. Btw, you should really be using Inkscape for this...

Since I can't find any native ability to unselect layers in GIMP, this is the (hacky) workaround, I have come up with, I thought I would post this as an answer in case it might be of use to others. I created a new layer called focus_holder, 1px in size (minimum GIMP would allow) and positioned it under the background. Then when I want to remove focus away ...

If you open up the palettes tab Windows->Dockable Dialogs->Palettes , you will note that the colormap for any opened indexed image is ready to be used as a palette (if you want such a palette to become a permanent asset, just use the duplicate button on it, available at the bottom of the dialog). To use those colors on another image, there are two ...

Click the "Chain" icon between the Width and Height boxes to unlink the two properties. This allows you to change the Width and Height properties independently. NOTE: If you only edit one of the dimensions without keeping the ratio then your image will be distorted. If you want to keep the image ratio the same but still change the width of the image then ...

Use a hard brush of appropriate size, pick the color from the corresponding adjacent area, and paint the lines away. Zoom in at the ends for pixel-perfectness.
