Basing on your example, this seems more a vector tool work. If the original source is a vector, you can edit this with Inkscape. If the image is a bitmap, you can import and trace it (as in this example). Now, you can edit the path, it's composed by nodes: Select all the nodes and simplify the path by hitting Ctrl+L With the node selected, convert ...

When adding text, ensure it is the top most layer. If the text layer is below any other layer, use the raise layer button in the layer dialog to arrange it at the top. Alternatively go to Layer-stack-Raise layer to move the layer.

You can trace the image in a vector drawing tool such as Inkscape. Tracing turns the elements of the design into vector objects. Once the elements of the design are vector objects you can improve the quality of the image in a couple of ways: if it is the quality of the design you are concerned with, you can modify the design in many ways, for example, ...

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 ...

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 ...

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

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

The gray fringe appears at the boundary between "opaque white pixels" and "transparent pixels". When you zoom in, GIMP is showing each pixel as a large square which is either white or transparent, so it appears to be OK. When you zoom in a PDF document, the PDF engine smooths the image so that squares do not appear. So it has to smooth both the color (RGB ...

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 ...
