Pictorial Guide to Blending with GIMP

Hiya! I wanted to share my techniques in blending on GIMP! I hope this helps a lot of you

Step 1: Open up GIMP (lol)

Step 2: Open up a new file. I usually use 400x200 as the size but it doesn't really matter what you choose. Except if you're wanting to make a signature for the forum, make sure you stay within the limit!



Step 3: Open one of the images you are planning on blending.

Step 4: Select the Color picker tool:

Step 5: Click on the main color of the background of the image you are trying to blend.

Step 6: Select the Bucket Fill tool:

Step 7: Fill the empty background with the bucket fill tool. I do this because it makes it easier to blend, and less noticeable. It's not required.

Step 8: Go to Layer - New Layer - Make sure Transparency is selected - OK


Step 9: Copy the image you are trying to blend. (You may resize it before you do this.)

Step 10: Paste it into the new layer.


Step 11: Move the image to where you'd like it to be. It's usually on the far left or right of the layer.

Step 12: Once you've done that, anchor the layer.


Step 13: Go to Layer - New Layer - Make sure Transparency is selected - OK

Step 14: Open another image you would like to blend in.

Step 15: Copy the image (You may resize it before you do this.)

Step 16: Move the image to where you'd like it to be.

Step 17: Anchor the layer.

Step 18: Select the Lasso tool:

Step 19: Trace around the unwanted area between the 2 layers.


Step 20: Go to Select - Feather


Step 21: Put in - 45.000 Pixels - OK


Step 22: Go to Edit - Clear until you are satisfied with your blend. or just keep pressing Delete.


It's not very good but this is how mine turned out:


Step 23: When you're done Go to Layer - New Layer - Make sure Transparency is selected - OK

Step 24: Keep repeating this with the rest of the images you'd like to blend until it's complete! Here is my finished product:


I hope I helped!
