The issue we have in your example picture is that pasting is normally done in the active layer. This active layer is marked with dotted yellow lines in your example. Pastes outside of this layer will not be possible. The example below shows how a paste partly inside, partly outside of the active layer will render: To overcome this we can either create a ...

In GIMP 2.8 you can simply lock the transparency of a layer while editing. Then, no operations will affect the existing transparency levels of a layer while you edit with any tools or filters. Just click on the checkbox for that on the Layers Dialog (ctrl + L)

Dynamics presets as standalone are seldom useful. They do make a lot of sense tho when used in full tool presets, so I recommend starting there. There must be something that makes sense for your uses. There are also several preset packs around. You can try them out and learn how they do what they do. :) ...

Blender might be overkill, but it certainly can do this. Import an SVG map. There is an addon bundled with blender which allows you to do this. If SVG not listed in File > Import, you must enable it in File > User Preferences > Addons: Then click File > Import > SVG and select your map (I used this one) Unfortunately the importer isn't perfect, and ...

Looks like your move tool is in 'Move selection' mode. Check the Move setting in the tool options (this image is from the docs and shows Move layer mode): The Alt key toggles to the 'Move selection' mode (Ctrl does the same for 'Move path'), and is supposed to switch back to 'Move layer' once you let go of the key. If you manage to steal the input focus ...

GIMP features no ready "shapes" tools, or the ability to easily create arrows. You have to draw then manually - either zooming in the head region and using click_shift to raw two straight lines for the head - or using the paths tool to start with, manually putting two segments to the head, and selecting "edit->stroke" for the whole path. The advantage of ...

It is very likely that these "boxes" are layers, text layers in this case. Assuming this is it, the following might be the answer: Layers have a finite size in GIMP, and this size doesn't change automatically. If you want to paint somewhere, then you have to make sure that: there is a layer at this location this layer is active in the layers dialog ...

This PNG file is in indexed color mode. This means that it only contains a limited amount of (different) colors, in its so-called color map. You can't use any colors other than those in GIMP as long as the image is in this mode. In this case, it is actually 77 times the same color, #CCCECC in HTML notation. In order to remove this restriction, change the ...

You can use the color picker button in GIMP's foreground and background color dialog or dockable for that. It works like this: you click the button you click anywhere on your screen the color is set You will encounter one issue, however: On 32 bit Windows platforms, the only color you'll be able to pick this way is black - this is a problem in the ...

If you have GIMP-GAP (http://www.gimp.org/tutorials/Using_GAP/) installed then you can use it to load your files. 1) Make sure that all of your frames are named sequentially[*] using a pattern such as "filename_0001.eps", "filename_0002.eps", "filename_0003.eps", ... 2) Open the first file using "Edit->Open" -- this will present you with the postscript ...

A rather quick way to colorize a monochrome object with variable transparency on a transparent background is using the bucket fill tool with fill FG color fill and fill mode Color. This will replace the object's color by the chosen foreground color leaving transparency levels untouched: Source: "Color" bucket fill green:
