Scuse me, but how the heck do you paste an image on top of another one without screwing up the layers?? When I try to paste my "horse", it goes to the very bottom layer and is really huge so it doesn't look like anything. Helpppppppp!!!!!!
Most of the time when I go to do a manipulation on GIMP, instead of erasing transparent it erases white. Like if I went to erase the background on the horse then instead of going transparent it goes white, covering the background. I'm the only one that seems to have this problem. Do you know if there is any way to fix this?
Dont erase the horse first. What ya do is, you take the horse right click, copythe horse, get your background, then erase. Make sure that there is dotted lines around the horse ONLY. Or you must've anchored it somehow.
Thanks fof making this tut! I've had GIMP for a while and have been learning new things slowly, layers, coloring, ect. I've always wanted to try doing some minips with all the AMAZING horse stocks around. (hehe) Your tut helped alot, I'm going to be trying this soon. And it's great that it's horses, because all the other tuts using people confussed me. :/ Thanks again!
I am apparently way too illiterate to figure this out. When I go to make the black layer, I only have foreground, background, white and transparent choices. I've tried everything (even though I don't know what I'm doing) and I can't get it black.
What am I doing wrong??
And thank you again - it rocks that you're willing to teach/help!!
I have one question though - as a beginner, could you note how someone would resize the picture you are adding to make it look like it belongs there? As an example, if I wanted to add a rearing horse to a pasture background, how would I resize the horse, if there is a way to do that
