Hi All, It's Tutorial Tuesday with Jo!!!!!
For my second "Gimp Tutorial" we are going to look at Layering Digi’s and creating Page Layouts… I hope you can follow along and create some wonderful creations! I have used Digital Delights New Summer Collection !
This is going to be a basic guide (but is a bit tricky, I had several attempts to get it working) of how to get more than one digi on a page and how to overlay and use layers. I have shortened this tutorial as was a bit too long but if you get stuck along the way please contact me and I'll help you out!
This is what we are going to achieve.........
Firstly we need to open your Gimp Program and select FILE – NEW
A box like this will appear:
I have chosen my canvas to be 8” x 8” but it’s up to you what you size you would like your page to be:
Our new blank canvas should look like this:
Next we need to add a transparent layer select LAYER and NEW LAYER.
Another box will open and your screen will then look like this:
LAYER and NEW LAYER and Select TRANSPARENT and OK
Now we enter the size for our Table, I have changed to inches and selected Width to 4.5” and Height to 2.5”.
So now we should have this:
FILE OPEN Table.png
We need to use the png files for layering as they are transparent.
Now we have opened our Table.png we need to copy the table to go onto our blank canvas…. So we select Edit and Copy from the top tool bar:
OPENED TABLE DIGI
Select EDIT and select COPY
Close the Table window. Back on your canvas, select EDIT, then PASTE
We should now have a way too big Table on our canvas:
So we need to scale. We need to select TOOLS and TRANSFORM TOOL then select the SCALE TOOL:
Width 4.5” and Height 2.5” inches and select SCALE
