I have a basic image that is black on a white background. I simply want to invert the image, take the now white portion and paste it on another image in GIMP. I am having no luck.
Within GIMP, I open that bird and I also open my background to be pasted upon.
On the bird, I click on Colors/Invert and now the portion I want to keep is white.
Now, I don't know what to do. I've tried various layers/masks but don't really understand and cannot seem to get just the white portion on to my second image. I can cut and paste the whole thing but I don't want the black background. I think what I want is just the transparency or whatever the white portion is.
Is there a simple way to do this? Any clear-cut steps?
