  1. Thanks bro your tutorials are amazing & you are very smart "Layer mask" What a good idea keep going bro Good Luck

  2. Need Help please in the last step of layer mask when i select all And iclick delete i dont get the white render of anroid why ?

  3. Often times people will unknowingly forget to switch to their layer instead of their layer mask when they're modifying an image. Make sure you click on the preview image of the actual android layer in your layers dockable dialog before clicking delete.

  4. Thanks Alex you are really a talented gimper good luck :D

  5. Thank you very much. I'm happy to help.

    That looks really good. The only thing is that it's a single color image that you're working with. The image that I'm having that problem with is a 2D cartoon Character, but it's got lots of colors. It does have a black outline though. How exactly would this affect my ability to use this strategy you feature here?
    Also, what if my image DOESN'T have a black outline, like a 3D cartoon character?

  7. Well Anax, since the edge is colored black, you could use this same method as a starting point. The black outline would give you a "buffer" so that you can effectively fill the rest of the inside black in your layer mask...make sense?

  8. Hi, thanks for sharing your ideas. Yours are unique and am sure will make me a more knowledgeable person. There are wonderful blogs on sites such Freelance Work From Home. Yours makes it to the topmost list! Keep blogging.

  9. Great post about using gimp . Thanks you so much .

  10. I'm inspire to see this tutorial .


Wacom Tablet

In my Gimp Tutorials, I frequently use Wacom Tablets. Here is an awesome wacom tablet I recommend using.
A Wacom tablet will enhance your GIMP photo editing experience by offering a pressure-sensitive touch that translates to varying transparency when making brush strokes in GIMP.

Gimp Reference Manual

I highly recommend getting this Gimp book to use as a reference manual in conjunction with my tutorials. This book will explain how the tools I use work. My tutorials will give you practical applications for the tools shown in this book.
