GIMP Blending Tutorial

Postby ChewbaccaDefense » Fri Jul 11, 2008 1:44 pm

I am new to the graphics game. I used to work with Corel Paint, but have recently switched to GIMP. Can someone teach me how to blend properly. It is my weakest area and any tips would be much appreciated. Thanks!

what exactly are you looking to blend?

the easiest thing to do is to use opacity and fill levels and put them where you like, but its not as simple as it seems. by adding stock photos on top of the layer that you want blended, makes the blended pic blend into the bg better. if you'd like, pick a sig from my page (linked in my sig) and ill explain how i blended anything in there. ;-D
