If the layer on which it is pasted is transparent, the pasted pixel will be transparent. Net cannot verify the validity of the statements made on this site. If the layer on which it is pasted is white, the pasted pixel will be visible. If you disable the alpha channels, all pixels from now on added to the image will not have alpha component, and so a pasted pixel will have the transparency of the layer on which it is pasted. Fundaments have a little triangle to the left of the thumbnail which permit expanding or collapsing the group. I don't know if that will actually help; it depends on what you are doing.
Essentially what I did is copy an image from another program FitsViewer, if that's relevant. If you need me to, I can make a quick tutorial, but I bet you can find it in the menu. Just click it and the image gets pasted. I've seen a couple videos but the teachers just confused me. Hi Chris, thanks for your comment. I stumbled upon which seems to be for Gimp 2. When I use paste new image, I get a new image that is exactly the same size as my selection, but it contains an empty transparent layer, instead of what I thought copied.
Seems like a basic function to me that is a huge time saver is lacking - having to mouse into each layer before you move an object is really frustrating and time consuming When you copy some image or selection and paste into an image you get a Floating Selection Pasted Layer 1 see: screenshot A You then have a choice, Anchor the layer 2 which merges the pasted item down to the layer underneath it or Make a new layer 3 If you want to move the pasted item at a later stage make it a new layer. I've already consulted the manuals, but they didn't help. You can in the same window of layers change the opacity of the floating image. You can paste from any selection from any other open image. I would appreciate it if someone could either talk me though what I'm doing wrong, or else confirm if it is a bug so that I can stop wasting my time and find a different program.
The work is complete when the endpoint joined the starting point. Do the same in Gimp, and I get an empty transparent selection, with no image. You have resized the image, but not the layer. I understand that this could just as well have been posted on the Inkscape mailing list if there is any but I'm only a subscriber to this one, so here goes nothing. I'm trying to copy an image and paste it into the same layer, but can't seem to do that. This automatically pastes the image in a new window and you can view it. Is it possible to somehow copy the entire folder as it is with multiple layers and all and paste it into my new file? You can see only in the picture on the right the disappearance of the background.
A slider button adjusts the values of opacity. But you need also to eliminate aliasing. Simply click inside the bounded image to make it a selection. In the Channels tab, the Alpha Channel must activated. Move the image to fit as you want.
For example, you can copy an accent color on the image and use it to fill a shape created by an outlining tool from the Toolbox. Inactive channels appear in white. If you click on a channel in the list, you toggle activation of the corresponding channel. Artists such as Cézanne and Whistler both employed watercolor in some of their paintings. So if you want to keep it as a layer group here's the quick trick for you! Ok, so I figured out how to paste a floating layer onto an existing layer - but it becomes a part of the layer and I can't move it around anymore. How do you paste into the same layer? Using the mouse click a line around your image.
You can go outside of the photo to reach isolated parts. I have the following image, which I open in gimp: I then use the rectangle selection tool to select a character and copy the selection. Your text is now a floating selection outside any layer and therefore invisible. However, Gimp doesn't seem to have such a feature built-in where you can select a layer group, draw a rectangle selection, and copy-paste this area so that each layer would get copy-pasted on their own. You can now, if you need to, go back and pull the line around your image in and out to match closer to your ideal cutting line.
Disabling the alpa channel has severe consequences. Click the color swatch to open a dialogue box with options to adjust this color. Click on a point with your mouse and drag it to move it to a new location. Example: I have this 640px by 400px first image with two layers - the background and a brush and I want to copy the brush layer to this other image of 1600px by 1200px. Activated channels appear highlighted generally in blue in the Channels dialog sometimes in grey.
Also any image you copy becomes a usable brush immediately from the clip-board. Unfortunately I don't think this is possible. See my article on for more information on open resources. Now you need to invert and cut out image. Do you need to keep the layers separate? In this option, the pasted image can be moved to view the existing image. Important step: you must connect the first and last anchor. Any image in Gimp has at least one layer.
I thought I saw in another paid program the ability to move multiple objects around in a single layer - is that not possible with the gimp? You can use Layers:Masks:Show Mask get the mask to show up on your screen as if it were a layer and work on it full size. To save the image with a transparent background you need to save it in a format that can handle not having a background. And you said you were new in Gimp so i figured i would give you a small heads up on it's capabilities. Open your picture, you can use whatever format your picture is in e. Anyone know what might be going on here? To remove the black background and replace it with a transparent background, use the manual scissors tool, and define the edges of the image to keep.
