Hi Chibachiaki, Well there should be an eye icon next before the layers name, and to toggle the visibility of the layers, all you have to do is click on the eye. When the eye is visible, the layer is visible and vice versa. Hope I helped!
When you say you 'cant figure out how to get pictures into gimp' do you mean your own pictures? If so, click on the file button and a drop down menu should appear then you can just click on open and open your file. If you mean how to make an image, you can click on file (again) then click new and specify the dimensions of your "canvas". Or if its just a picture online, you can copy and paste it.
Hope I helped and reply back to tell me if it worked or not!
Hi there. I noticed there are already a lot of unanswered comments on here (you probably got tired of answering them all, hah) but if you have a second, I'd appreciate it if you would help me out. So I was trying to follow this tutorial and even though people are saying there is an easier way, i'd like to try this one. I got to step 11 alright. Okay, so on my top layer (with the eye and the hole) I selected everything around the hole right? And then, do I fill it in with black on that layer or on the middle blank layer? And then which layer is set to overlay? The top, middle, or bottom layer? I can't get mine to turn out the way it's supposed to... I just see the colored version, without the normal background.
There is an easier way to do this~ Use the 'Free-Select tool' to outline the coloured part of the eyeball Click 'Colours' on the same bar with 'file' and 'edit' and/or 'filters' Best methods to use for the colouring part is 'Add Colour' 'Colour ballence' anything that has the word colour, etc...
oh right, im sorry, i know of no other way basically, you see the top panel where it says "file, edit, image" etc well there is "colours" up there and if you pull that down "desaturate" and "colour balance" are there i hope you find it.
