Using The GIMP :: Layers by saphiremomo Using The GIMP :: Layers by saphiremomo
2010

Edited for streamlining, better look, and with information I've learned in photoshop and such. For those that preferred the original tutoarial, here's the old one! [link]

2006

Here I explain the mysteries of the confusing concept of layers to my best degree. It's not the best, but it has pictures!

Hey in GIMP can you do groups? LIke let's say I have these layers:
E (transparent)
D (transparent)
C (transparent)
B (background)
I want E to multiply with D and then combine the result as if it was a single layer with normal blend mode, but I can't see how to do it in GIMP.

Using maths notation, if normal blend mode is + and multiply is *. I want to get
(E * D) + (C + B).
However, I can only see how GIMP can do
E * (D + (C + B)).

For example I might want to apply shading E only to layer D without affecting the layer C or the background beneath it. The only way I can do it is save layers E and D and render them to an image, and import the image as a layer in the main file. Is there an easier way?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

In GIMP you can do groups...I'm just not sure how it works (still learning basics). But yes, you definitely can. I'm sure you can find it in a tutorial somewhere.
