As an addition to previous answers, if you still have this thin outline, for me the easiest way to get rid of it is this: 1. select transparent part with autoselect tool (or any other way that suits you) 2. edit selection by either increasing it by 1 px or by feathering selection to 2-3 px. 3. delete everything selected.

Save the original image with the layer group as an xcf. In the new image, and open the original as layers (File > Open as Layers). This will add all of the layers from the original image. You'll need to delete the layers from the new image that you don't want. Unfortunately you can't pick/choose what layers you import. But as long as this is only a ...

I do a lot of pixel art in GIMP, and in addition to what everyone else said, I always make sure to check "Smooth Stroke" so be sure that it's always applying a solid color when I click, even if the layer I'm drawing on has an alpha mask. The specific settings for the sliders pertaining to "Smooth Stroke" don't seem to matter in this scenario. I really ...

Copy&paste is the wrong approach to copy layers from one image to another - this will only transfer the layer content, and as you have discovered that isn't the same as a layer or group of layers. Instead, drag the layer or layer group from the layers dialog of the source image to an image window of the target image. This will keep them intact, ...

Make sure that the layer is active when you are scaling. This is indicated by a white outline around the layer in the layers dialog: If the layer mask is active, then the scale tool will only scale that one layer mask. Again, this is indicated by a white outline around the layer mask in the layers dialog:

If you have an active selection, Color to Alpha will only affect the selected parts of the image. Thus, you just need to select the background (e.g. with the Magic Wand tool) and then apply Color to Alpha, leaving the un-selected areas untouched: → → → (Original image by Creative Tools, used under the CC-By-SA 2.0 license.)

This option has been there for quite a while - in GIMP 2.8 it shows up in the context menu (right-click) you get while using the text tool - while in previous versions it showed up in the tool options.

If the image is in a single layer, select the areas you want to go transparent with the "Magic Wand" (Fuzzy Select) tool instead. Them just Edit->Cut to get rid of the selected parts. (Make sure your background layer has an alpha channel Layer->Transparency->Add Alpha Channel). If your background is in a different layer, then just delete/hide ...

The classic drop shadow plug-in has actually two different behaviors, depending exactly on wether there is a selection or not. If there is a selection, it creates a shadow os the selection countour itself on the current layer (yes, this is nearly useless). When used with no active selection on the image, it has the expected behavior of creating a new layer ...

Short answer: There is currently no way to do this with GIMP, you are out of luck. Longer answer: PSD export is handled by a plug-in. By improving that plug-in, you or someone else can add text layer export to this plug-in. GIMP is Free Software, so contributions by people who need a specific feature are expected.

Definetelly your scanner software is trying to run some "auto" thing by itself. You should really try to turn that off. There is no easy way to make then consistent again but for trial and error. Becasue white and black level are not the only thing there, but How steep is the Value curve from light to dark - which affects line width directly, and also how ...

You won't find any "automatic" melting/dripping effects. You need to learn to make your own by matching 2 or more pictures together, and using layers masks (or whatever it's called in Gimp.) The trick to show skin as if it was peeled off or removed somehow is to use a picture with bones, and the original picture. You can also use different bones and stick ...

The simpliest way would be to change the color of the place you want burned out. But make sure you do it step by step, so only change a little bit of color every frame. I hope you do know how animations work in GIMP?

I’ve used the following method to center one or more layers between any two points: Create your new text (or whatever) layer(s) between the two points (put it off-center a little so that you will see it move when you finally center it). Add a new transparent layer over your entire graphic (and make sure it is the active layer). Call it guide layer or ...

In Gimp we can replace an alpha transparency channel by the background color from the menu Layer > Transparency > Remove Alpha Channel:

I would say the best way to make it not transparent would the (in GIMP) open the file, make a new layer underneath the image of a color of your choice, then save it as a .JPG since they natively do not have transparency. Hope that works out! It should without issues.

The rippling filter acts on the current layer. Move your selection to its own layer. Select the desired area Ctrl / Cmd + C Exit -> Paste As -> New Layer Make sure that layer is selected when you run the filter.

First, open up the tool settings and the colors menu if you haven't already. Second, go to selection tools --> fuzzy select. Set the threshold to about 42. Hold shift and select all of the white portions of your picture. Third, click "select --> invert". Fourth, "Paint tools --> "Paintbrush", select the color you want for the background, set the opacity to ...

IMHO you would have to convert the document in photoshop to Grayscale. Using the Curves palette, adjust the color until you get a solid black and fill the unwanted dots with a small hard paint brush. Then you add a new layer and fill with the correct blue color. Choose "difference" for that layer on the layers palette. Flatten image. Add another layer, fill ...

when I paste this alpha image into a separate PNG image ( which has no alpha ) in a new window in GIMP, the semi transparent pixels become completely opaque. I did reproduce your issue, but it only occured if pasting into an indexed mode new window, so you can fix this by pasting your image into a RVB mode new window instead.

1- Isolate the '+' symbol in your image using a free hand selection (Ctrl+wheel to zoom in/out to help you selecting), ctrl+x to cut your selection, ctrl+v to paste it into another layer. 2- Go to your layer containing the 'mathematics' text, lock alpha channel for this layer, now use the bucket tool to fill with any color you want, it will only affect the ...

You can try to use "select by color" tool to select the what you want, and filled the selection with other color to cover the origin text

You could create a multiply layer with clipping mask (I'm not sure how it's done with GIMP but in Photoshop you could set a layer to clip the one below by clicking it while holding the Alt key) over the original image and color the whole layer black. Then place the separate yellow cross image in a new layer over the logo where the cross should be.

I figured it out. I used the fuzzy selection tool, set the threshold to 0 then selected the whit background. After that you simply create an alpha channel and delete. Anyone else know another way?

For the colors, we can't do anything except limited ~256 colors. But for the pixelated edges you can: Make it at @3x and reuse it at @1x in HTML
