This GIMP Basics tutorial designed for beginners provides a deep-dive into the Create a New Layer dialogue. This feature in GIMP allows you to create new layers for your composition, and has a surprising amount of options that most GIMP users have never utilized. From color tags to composite modes, opacity to layer modes, I go over everything found in this handy dialogue.

I also cover some general topics surrounding layers to help you understand what layers are and how they work.
