If you want STRAIGHT LINES (or RECTANGLES), then (just create a new layer and) : 1) choose BRUSH and click mouse anywhere. 2 ) After clicking, then press SHIFT and click on another place; Between them will be straight Line!

What you want is a gradient. Read more about Gradients in the GIMP User Manual. Below is how you can accomplish what you describe. Add a layer mask Do this by right-clicking the layer, then Add Layer Mask. Use "White (full opacity)" Select the Gradient took (shortcut L) In the tool options, change the shape to "Radial" In the tool options, click the ...

To remove an overlay of grey to an alpha channel as is the case of the example we have to remove the alpha channel (Layer > Transparency > Remove Alpha Channel) first. We then can convert the background gray back to alpha by choosing Layer > Transparency > Color to Alpha. In the window that opens click on the color bar (defaults to white) to open the ...

My approach would be as follows: Assuming that your two images are layers, and that the text layer does exist already: create a selection that spans the area between the two layers' right and left edges use the Align tool on the text layer, choose "Selection" in the "Relative to" dropdown in its tool options Align as desired with the buttons in the Align ...

In more recent GIMP versions - 2.8 and onwards: use the 1x1px brush, or any size square brushes that is based on the VBR format (create a new brush in the brushes dialog, if in doubt) set the size to 10 in the paint tool you are using Note that it depends on the tool what you will get - the paintbrush tool will add additional semi-transparent pixels ...

You can't do this right now, there are no actions for switching tool presets with keyboard shortcuts or input controller actions (that's stuff like Ctrl+Alt+Wheel) yet.

As put in the comment, this is a workload that will require scripting GIMP - although it can be done in a more or less interactive way (as individual images need separate treatment, that may actually be needed). If you check Filters->Python->Console you will get an interactive Python console, from which you can interact with GIMP - and if you want a ...

Ok, let's try to write an answer... 0. Some technical background Many image file formats can actually preserve the color values of transparent pixels. PNG, TIFF, TGA, BMP are among them, as well as the working formats of most (or more likely all) serious image manipulation applications. You can think of pixels as being colored and transparent according to ...

If you create a layer group and move both layers there, then you can duplicate that layer group. Depending on your workflow, layer groups might be a major improvement for other tasks as well, because you can e.g. switch their visibility more easily than that of all the layers they contain. You can't move layer groups and their layers yet, unfortunately - ...

It is probably not satisfying, but the actual answer is: You can't create a layer group in indexed mode because this has not been implemented in GIMP.

I think there is currently no shortcut-able actions for switching the tool presets. Regarding the brush size: there is a fast way to double and half the size with shortcuts, all you have to do is to assign them to the tools-value-2-increase/decrease-percent actions. I've used Alt+[ and Alt+] in the following example (the rest are the default values):

Adding a background layer is a nice way to try different backgrounds. The more boring way would be to set the transparency style in the display preferences, "[...] either to a different type of checkerboard, or to solid black, white, or gray": http://docs.gimp.org/2.8/en/gimp-pimping.html#gimp-prefs-display

What I did, was make sure to download the transparent PNG version of the logo (if a transparent version is not available, you will just have to manually select the text/shapes) and import into Gimp. I then created a new layer, and used the brush tool to make it solid red. Then I desaturated the PNG logo until it was grey scale, like this (I hid the red layer ...

Yes, that would be very easy, I just opened up Gimp 2 my self and tried it out to make sure! :p Anyway, in the layers panel, right click and choose New Layer. Then make sure you select White for the Layer Fill Type. Now, click OK and move the new white layer to the bottom of all the current layers. To change the layer color, select it and just paint ...

To allow growing as well as crop we need to check Allow growing in the toolbox as shown below. Draw a box for the new size The exact geometry of the new image will be shown in the bottom line while dragging. Press Enter to apply The ...

I believe what you need is to clip your image (clipping is using a path to cut and define the shape of another path or image). In order to do this select both the object and the clipping path. The clipping path must be above the object to be clipped in z-order. Then use the Object → Clip → Set command. To unclip a clipped object, select the object and ...

Take the new map to the separate layer over the old map in the background layer and set the top layer to the "Difference" mode. Then using the GIMP transformation tools you can perfectly match the maps. Actually you may try not only the "Difference" mode, but others, too, depending on the details that you match, but the "Difference" is perfect exactly for ...

If you are really interested in recoloring and not in the transformation of any sort, then standard technique is to use a "Color" mode for a layer that sets the colors. So, in the back layer you put the 32x32 image with correct details, but wrong colors. On top of it in the separate layer you take a 16x16 image with correct colors. Then rescale it to 32x32 ...

I have the drop shadow, but I think it kind-of needs to go all around the circles and darker at the bottom, right? The answer to this question is available in Google's "Material Design" style guide. The shadow is described here. In short, you have to have two shadows for each element (each layer in GIMP), for ambient and for directional light, therefore ...

You can and probably should cut the image up into tiles. This allows your gane to load each segment separately into the graphics cards memory. But as a side effect it makes texturing easier for you. PS before you go on make sure your game engine wont choke on your texture size. Many gfx systems have a 8k texture limit. (altough it could have several of ...

I am not an expert on game developement. But an image 28712x27744 as 8 bit RGB tif is about 2.2 Gigabytes in Photoshop. I created a test image. On the Mac Os it is 2.4 G on the disk. I was able to open it in Gimp but it took a while. The image crashed the filter plug-in I tried to use. I think GIMP has issues with large file sizes. You might try to find ...

In computing, indexed color is a technique to manage digital images' colors in a limited fashion, in order to save computer memory and file storage, while speeding up display refresh and file transfers. It is a form of vector quantization compression. When an image is encoded in this way, color information is not directly carried by the image pixel data, ...
