Can layers be symlinked in gimp? Like if they were the same layer.
For example, I have one tree, and I want to create a forest. I want to draw a single tree, dup that layer into 20 layers. Then i will change scale and layers' order. I will also flip and slightly rotate some layers.
After that I think all trees should have an extra branch. But I want to change just a single layer. Is that possible?
If there are no symlinked layers, could that be done using a script and properly named layers by copying the drawing data without the transformation?
If we could have an interface to easily edit the name of the layer like a list of properties, it would be even better as we could add many more effects and filters to be easily applyed to each secondary layer. We coukd have also a 3rd layer based on a secondary, and a 4th from the 3rd and so on. I wonder if such layerNameAsPropertiesList plugin could be created? Because the script i think it can be done, i wonder if there is alredy such script or if we could contribute on github to create one.
