In this GIMP basics tutorial, I provide an in-depth look at layers. This important concept forms the base of pretty much everything you’ll be doing in GIMP – from editing images to creating graphic design projects. I discuss everything from how to create a new composition and new layer, layer transparency, the layers panel, the layer stacking order, layer groups, to layer masks. Everything you’ve ever wanted or needed to know about layers in GIMP is in this tutorial!
This is an update of a tutorial I did a few years ago on the same subject. I created this tutorial for beginners because a lot has changed about GIMP since my last video on the subject.
