You should have avoided the problem by using another technique to extract the flower from its background (this would have also avoided the blue rim). Typically on such shapes using a Path gives good results.

The Sample points dialog will show you in real time the RGBA/HSVA/CYMKA components (for a layer or "merged") of up to four points you can position on the image.

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...

If your text is a text layer ('A' preview icon), then: Make a Path that follows the arc, Use Layer>Text along path (this menu is only available on text layers). This creates another path, which is your text following the arc path. Y Select>From path to create a selection from this Bucket-fill the selection. Slightly complex, but the result is much ...

One option might be to convert a color in your image to transparency: Go to Layer -> Transparency -> Color to Alpha This way you can choose exactly what you want to be transparent by making it a certain color and then converting that color to transparency.

With the elliptic selection tool, click into the selection. This doesn't restore the selection per se. It rather starts a new selection within the bounding box of the existing one, but will come close in most cases. In your case, it should be indistinguishable from the original selection.

So far, found only one way to enlarge the selection without losing center... Select menu > Grow Not as flexible as the initial mouse resizer, but will do the job for now.

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. You can assign a shortcut to it (enable Dynamic keyboard shortcuts in preferences->interface, then ...

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 ...

I'd like to see the color value updated too... at the moment I'm using the Pointer Dialog, which is updated while moving the mouse and shows the numerical values under the cursor: You can show it using Windows... Dockable dialogs... Pointer

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 ...

In Photoshop, I'd use the magic wand tool to quickly select the obvious sepia colours of the background. I'd convert this to a mask. I'd then go into quickmask mode - press 'q' - and using the pen, trace around the edge of the mask and fill it. This will then make the masked area transparent, so I'd add a white background layer below the layer with the ...

JPGs do not support transparency. If you want to retain transparency, save to a format that supports transparency such as PNG.

If you're using GIMP, add the David's Batch Processor plugin. It's available from SourceForge and the developer's website. It handles a number of batch resizing tasks, including resizing, conversions to different formats, batch file renaming (adding a prefix or suffix to filenames), and much more. It's a free plugin and donations are accepted on the ...

How many cards are there? Assuming its not hundreds, and you already have some basic knowledge of ID, one straighforward option would be to make a master page with your common frame image as a background (could be on a locked layer) + one image (of the first card or any card) + one formatted text box (of the first card or any card). So this master page could ...

The solution is to do things the Inkscape way. As a newbie, I was front-loading too much work from GIMP. Relying more on the functionality of Inkscape effectively removed the problem from my workflow. (The Python way is pythonic, so this must be inkscapic or better inkscapist.) Of course I may still bump into this problem future. Again relying on ...

To make it less clunky I created a merge down shortcut in gimp. The duplicate layer shortcut is: ctrl+shift D i created a merge down shortcut in preferences like so so i can leave the figers on the ctrl+shift button. ctrl+shift M Then start at background layer (bottom one) and do: ctrl+shift D > arrow up > ctrl+shift M and so on when finished export ...

Download FastStone from faststone.org Launch to program, navigate to the folder where the files you want processed are Select the files you like processed, then press F3 (or right-click/tools/batch convert) You will see the selected files in a window on the right ...

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 ...

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.
