Default Did you know?
Did you know in gimp, you can make multiple selections?

I learned how to do this today.

you make your selection, then to make a separate selection without loosing your other selection hold shift key down while you select.

Well... I learned that the first time I used it, like 3 years ago
But is ok, there's a lot of things left to learn! And I discover something every time I use it.

Here's a tutorial for making transparent backgrounds in gimp. I found this very useful.

Also to make just a part of the image transparent, you can select it and hit delete on your keyboard. But don't save as .jpg, becuase that can't support transparency, save as .png, or .tga instead.

Whoa! Thanks Jon! This will be very helpful ^-^
I didn't think you could multi-select.
*hugs Jon* I haven't talked to you in awhile.

There is an easier, much simpler way to create a transparent background in the Gimp than the tutorial shows. Open the gimp and then open your image. Click on layers-transparency-add alpha channel. Now all you have to do is is take your wand and select the section(s) that you want to be transparent and click edit and then cut. There ya go short and simple.

Love will humiliate you and hate will cradle you.
Jealousy would be far less torturous if we understood that love is a passion entirely unrelated to our merits.

I learned that I could make my own screen tone patterns, here! They are made from the MS paint ones.
