If you have a psd to apply this is the time to do it.
You’re going to go to Layer > New > New Layer and create a new transparent layer, then after you unlock your base layer by dragging the little lock symbol to the tiny trashcan you’re going to need to move the base layer on top of the transparent one.
Now using the Ecliptical Marquee Tool make a 100 x 100 (or whatever size icon you’re doing) circle and center it on your top layer like below:
Using right click the middle of that circle and in the menu that opens chose Select Inverse. This will select the whole area outside the circle like in the image below:
This is the satisfying part where we hit delete and watch our icon take shape…Ta Da!
All that’s left to do is merge your layers and save as a .png and you have yourself a circle icon. I have this saved as an action for quicker use, it cuts my iconing in half.
I need someone to do a GIMP tutorial for the TS4 dollhouse. I really want to make some, but I legit don’t know how to edit shit. I’m new lol and GIMP is free. I don’t really like photoshop. Please, please, please. I would be so appreciative.
i’ve been trying for over a year to learn how to make edits and graphics (like the kind where you cut characters out/remove the background),usng the program and while i have a general idea of how to do some thngs, i want to learn more efficiently.
i’ve looked at all kinds of tutorials on here and you tube, and none really work for me personally because i’m unfamiliar with a lot of terms and just art stuff in general, since i’m more of a writer.
i know most people prefer using photoshop, but at the moment i can’t afford a subscription, nor can my computer hold it because it’s a chromebook with minimal disk space.
any tips/advice/resources etc you can offer or point me in the direction ofwould be greatly appreciated.
Alright! Here’s a tutorial on removing backgrounds using the path tool and layer masks, folks! I know GIMP has a bunch of options for layer masks and it can be overwhelming, so I’m here to make it easier for you, hopefully.
