Over the years I have developed a technique to simulate printing with glazing colors (screen printing, offset printing etc.) while working completely non-destructive, remaining full editability through the whole process and being able to easily export greyscale/bitmap masters for each color. Before we start we need to clarify what we want to do: We ...

In offset printing, the only time colors are going to appear "multiply" as on the example is when there's an overprint on some spot colors. One way to work with spot color easily is to use the channels in Photoshop and bring each part of the artwork on the specific channel. That's not as easy as working with layers when creating an artwork and playing ...

First, car lights don't show in the same way as your example. What is missing from your test is some perspective but also the lights need to be out of the frame of the picture, and higher. Right now your lights are on the road (eg. really on the ground!) I don't know if this is the effect you're looking for, but here is what I did to get to this without ...

Select/highlight the areas you wish to knock out of the layer 0. Then, with that area still highlighted, click on layer 0 in the layers panel. Press delete on your keyboard. And hide Layer 1 so ...

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 → ...

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 ...

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 couldn't see the attached example but a little image-Googling made me guess it's the 2013 Denver County Fair poster. If it is, that effect can be done in Inkscape. Here's one way to do it: Make 2 different gradient filled "rays" per sunburst. The angle of the pennant shapes depends on how many rays of each you want in a sunburst (9 degrees in this case, ...
