They allow you to selectively modify the opacity transparency of the layer they belong to. Layers dialog for the image. For this example I will use a simple image with only two layers, as shown above. There is a base image at the bottom of the stack, and a single layer of teal over it.

Looks pretty cool. And I just could not figure out what those icons were or images were because it has to be exact. Do it like three or four different times and if you get it right, cool no prob.
But we have, by the way, sent the log-in information you need to get in to the system to your email address. So after you screwed it up a couple of three to four times like I did, because I could never get it right, then go ahead and send me the information you need anyway to your email address. Then you just come on back here to the website and put in your username and the password they gave you and you can go on then and change your password.
Now then what we wanna do now is I wanna show you how to create these flames. Somebody has basically gone through all these steps here and recorded them. Now that record of events that took place in the process of making all of these items here to the end-result of the animated flame. This is called Script-FU. But yeah, they call it the Script-FU. So we are just gonna add to it. Probably thousands of them. Oh yeah. And here we are under Program Files. So we are now at GIMP. Anywhere in amongst here, these are all the scripts that, are by default, already installed.
Right-click and paste. There we have it. Oh and you can see that they all have the. Probably, script-something. Hit OK. So instead of us having to go through all those steps on that tutorial, like I said somebody else already did that for us, recorded it as a script, and boom.
Here we have it. There you have it. Like I said, you can go to that registry. So have fun with it. Thanks a lot for watching and have a great day! Click on File here. Actually, there are so about five of them. That way it will give you the opportunity to save it in a different location or to just confirm in your mind where it was originally saved at.
Because if you have not saved this in the past, given this a name, and so on, then by clicking on Save it will bring up the same dialog as if it were being Saved As. For example.. Otherwise, perhaps say something like untitled or unnamed. And this is a little bit different than your typical Windows save window.
It gives a lot of different options here. First of them, obviously the name. You wanna give it a name. Of course, you kinda limit it a little bit. It drops down and gives you a lot more options to pick and choose from. And this is probably the best way I would do it is I would just click on this and then click on Save. Then it should open up the next time in this format rather than in the close format as it was originally.
So here we can just click on where we want to have the image saved, and then here is the folder, and then here is the preview. So you can kinda see here. Let me cancel this out real quick here. And back here, Save As… You can see how it opens up again in this format. You can do that down here. Oh, and of course, you can create a new folder if you wanted to. This gives you a bit of a path for the location of this image.
As you can see it gives you a whole bunch of options to choose from here. Now the main ones you wanna consider in working with the most of the internet marketing or webpage style images would be the. JPEG or the. JPG, the. GIF, or the. XCF which is kinda like a. Then that would be another one would be the. PSD or Photoshop.
And the only other extension that I would consider here would be the. PNG which is pretty close to being the same as the. GIF only the. PNG tends to have a little bit better luck with the compression. It just tends to work a little bit better in some cases than the. GIF but they are so minute that you can probably get away using the.
GIF without any hassles. So the three biggies are gonna be the. GIF, and the. And you can see right here the extensions, and here are the file types here, and just kinda go on through here. JPEG, the. PNG, the. PSD, the. Now the. XCF again is similar to that of the. PSD where this allows you to save all the layers intact and the original uncompressed image.
So naturally, this is gonna be a larger file. GIF or the. JPEG is much better suited for things like pictures, photos, gradients. You know, things with lots of colors whereas the. GIF and the. PNG are more suited towards the lone number of colors. Ideally, those with like transparencies. In other words, those that do not have a background. And also one of the cool things about.
GIF is you can create animations with it too. Anyway, those are the basics behind saving your images and whenever you click on this down here you can see up here where it automatically assigns an extension. Given an extension of. JPG extension.
Click on Save. And we do that by clicking on Export. Now this is a cool part here. If you show preview in image window then you can kinda see it based on the quality. Now just check out the original size where we at right now. We can up this size a whole bunch. So if you take this all the way down to four or seven you can see how the quality degrades a great deal there.
Right there is right about where it was and it looks fairly decent. Again, something as far as the. Thank you much for watching! You can do the same technique to remove that particular item or individual from that picture. It looks kinda dorky, actually. It would look like this.
