3 Videos to Get You Started with GIMP Layers

Gimp videos

GIMP is a really powerful and free alternative to Photoshop.

Over the last few weeks, we’ve released a video series on GIMP that includes over 6 hours of training.

In these 3 videos from the series, you’ll learn how GIMP handles layers. If you’ve not used image editing software before, layers allow you to stack images on top of each so you can create fresh, new combinations.

Video #1. Gimp Layers

In this first video, Vicki, our GIMP teacher, introduces you to how layers and how they’re handled in GIMP.

Video #2. Layer Layouts

In this second video, you’ll learn how to use align, float and more to control the layout of your layers.

Video #3. Blending Layers

In this final video, you’ll see how to combine your layers using lighten, darken and dissolve modes
