Please. Don't draw them by hand, we apreciate you live for more than drawing moving particles. O.o In a particle system you need to define what forces are moving the particles, gravity? an expanding force? an atractive one? Does the system have a decay time? In my opinion the way to go here is a 3d program like Blender, but you will need to work on how the ...

There are many rendered and real-time ways to create animations of particles. The easiest... maybe... is After Effects and the various plugins that create different kinds of particle animations. But, given that you're going to be paying big money for the plugins that make the best particles within After Effects, and that the workflow is often painful ...

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 → ...

You can do the following. Create a new transparent layer and choose the "Blend Tool" and in the tool options, set the gradient to "FG to transparent". Select the color you want to use for the vertical line and draw a gradient from one side of the canvas to the other. Go to "Filters->Distorts->Polar Coordinates" and the default settings should be ...

As annoying as it may be, I'm unaware of a method of disabling it. Alternatively, You can anchor the floating layer to the current layer by pasting the image on to your canvas, clicking on (for example) the background of the canvas, and pressing CTRL+H. This will automatically place the floating layer on to another layer. Alternatively you can right click ...

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 ...

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 ...

You can use the following method. You can add a new transparent layer above the orange image layer and draw over the part you want to change the color of in the color you want to change it to. In this case, white. Change the new layer’s blend mode to “color”. At this point, the image may be fine when using some colors but if the image looks like ...

As listed in the comments, the issue is the DPI. When using the A4 template the default DPI is 300. Your original images were created at a different DPI. A typical DPI is 72 (which is also the GIMP default), whereas for print it is generally 300 (which is what will be selected if you use the A4 template in GIMP). As @Paolo Gibellini mentioned in the ...

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 ...

I don't specifically know GIMP, but i'm pretty sure the method would be the same, so in Photoshop, I would either Group the layers under a folder, then apply a mask to the folder (this is the better method as it keeps everything editable and separate) or Create an empty mask on each of the layers, then create the actual mask in one of them, then copy that ...

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 ...

Another option (in addition to @jsbueno's response above) is to open another image file that you know has RGB for its mode (i.e., the Color to Alpha... option is working on that image file already). Then copy your image and paste it as a new layer to the opened image file and you'll see that the Color to Alpha... option will still be available for that ...

As it's an iOS icon I assume it's square. A radius of 100% would give a radius of half the width and height of your image (making a perfect circle). Apple's icon radius is a value of 10/57 (0.1754 or 17.5%) as Gimp's percentage works on half the icon size we need to double that value to 35%. In brief: Goto Select menu > Rounded Rectangle... > Enter a value ...

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. ...

An effect similar to the one in the examples given can be created with a variation of the Sketch-filter of the G'MIC plugin set for Gimp. These are steps I took for re-creating this effect: Choose a white background rather than transparent for the source Select the monochrome icon with the select-by-color tool for effect inside of the icon contours ...

I can't think of a way of doing the uneven line spacing other than creating a sophisticated brush and painting with it. Given hatched lines, though, I was able, using GIMP to recreate the fading of the lines - final result can get like this - but it does require manual intervention: (To get the even spaced lines - use the grid filter at ...
