Hi, I'm fairly new to GIMP. I need help.
Let's say, I have a base image. Then another image which is comprised of the
base image and a transparent layer of blue, but is merged into one layer.
How can I subtract the base image from the other image, resulting in a layer
Here, I'll show what is needed in my case.
I have my base image, here
and here is the other image, which is the base image plus a rainbow layer
As I said before, the second image is one layer, and I can't click undo
because that image isn't originally mine.
How would I subtract the base image from the second image that leaves me
with a rainbow gradient layer, that looks something like this
<http://gimp.1065349.n5.nabble.com/file/n43846/Rainbow.jpg> (image not to
scale) (note, this is just an example and I can't use this one because it
does not match the exact shades of the seconds image, which is what I need)
This coloring is usually applied using some form of multiplication:
final=original X colors
so to get back at the colors:
colors= final / original
So in Gimp:
- Load rainbow-ed image
- Load original image as a layer over it
- Put original image layer in "Divide" mode
Result not perfect, due to overflow/clipping...
