GIMP 2.4 Tutorial – Selections

or copy the link

HIGH QUALITY: By following this tutorial you will learn the concept of selections in GIMP. Whenever I said “layer mask” I really meant “selection mask”. This video was created on Ubuntu [1] using recordMyDesktop [2], Cinelerra CV [3], GIMP [4], MPlayer / MEncoder [5], a lot of trial and error and fair amounts of general computer skills and Linux knowledge. I hope you enjoy it! [1] [2] http [3] [4] http [5] Feel free to spread this video in YouTube-embedded format as much as you like.

I need a gimp tutorial on how to make custom “cookie cutters”. I mean making a custom selection and copying the selection ‘s shape (NOT the selection, but THE SELECTION’S SHAPE), and then pasting and moving that Selection’s shape somewhere else to make a new selection the same shape and dimensions of the old selection.

great lesson–I have a newer ed of gimp–it doesn’t have a scaler slide that can change brush sizes (for all brushes) like the gimp 2.4 has. any way to get that scaler slider into the newer version? thanks

Hi. Thank you for your hard work.

Before, I didn’t have much faith in Gimp, because it seemed so difficult to use. After watching and reading several tutorials, such as yours, I’m convinced that Gimp is wonderful.

Thank you very very much for your tutorials. Before them I could do as much with Gimp as I did with Paint !!!!!.
I was very interested in this thing: the selections. Now I have a pic from my eye and I could change the color of my iris, from dark to green.

[77satellites] LOL! Aahhhh… Can’t imagine how that was a freakishly sick homo-erotic comment. But if you felt homo-eroused…more power to you. Have a nice day; it’s hot in California so I’m staying inside.

[Enselic] GIMP was always complicated to me, as compared to Photoshop Elements and PhotoImpact XL, so I’m glad that someone is doing tutorials on GIMP. Layers & Selections were ALWAYS a pain for me to get down! xP
