• GIMP question

    From Dumas Walker@VERT/CAPCITY2 to All on Thursday, April 21, 2022 14:57:00
    I use The GIMP for most of my photo manipulation. I have an image that I would like to use as a watermark on a video project. So, I would like to make this currently solid image somewhat see-through, so that whatever is in the background will at least somewhat be visible.

    If I do it in the video editor, Openshot, I can reduce the alpha for the track that the solid image is a part of, and that will make it more transparent. However, as I plan to use the image often, I would like to be able to add transparency to the image when I save it in The Gimp, so that I only have to remember to do it once.

    I have not been able to determine yet which tool in The Gimp corresponds to the alpha property in Openshot. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    If you're asking how you'd make something more transparent in Gimp, I'd use the layers.. make sure the background layer is transparent, then make the layer of your image less visable. Does that make sense?

    Yes, it does. I was actually having trouble finding the opacity adjustment because I somehow accidentally hid the Gimp toolboxes from myself. :)

    thanks!
