Layer Masking 101 on Gimp by Cyren-Nalini Layer Masking 101 on Gimp by Cyren-Nalini

Yup, yet another Gimp-torial on the joys of masking. I'll probably take a break from masking and move on to another topic. We'll see where my thoughts land in coming weeks.

Either way, Enjoy and I hope it helps!

Thank you so much for making this!
Masks are really such a simple and great concept, but for some reason I have a hard time grasping how to use them.
Your tutorial is coming in very handy for a photomanipulation I'm attempting for my cousin. :D

Here's the photomanip done using your tutorial on masking: [link]

I can't say enough how simple and easy to understand your tutorial is! I don't know why masking seemed like such a hard concept for me to grasp, but your tutorial really helped!

:clap: Aw, nice job, sweetheart!

Hm, maybe it's just how familiar and comfortable you get with gimp, cuz I was the same way with masking. It wasn't until last year that masking made sense to me and changed my world, lol.

Again you're welcome, and thanks so much for viewing my tutorial :).

Thanks! :aww:

Perhaps...
I learned a bit about masking back when I was taking Digital Photography and Graphics in high school, but it wasn't something I had used too often. I think it may have even confused me a bit then. Heh.

I'm just glad yours makes sense! *cannot stress it enough*
