Yeah, do not use 'apply layer mask' at least not straight away. Using GEGL and on canvas display, there are several operations that need a 'enter' to fix them. Guessing something like this, black background, white **active** layer mask, white-to-black radial gradient. Drawn in the canvas looks like this. Layer mask will remain blank as this: https://i.imgur.com/dkElA36.jpg When satisfied hit the enter key to confirm the operation, that fixes the gradient into the layer mask. as: https://i.imgur.com/z34maPW.jpg -- rich404 (via www.gimpusers.com/forums) _______________________________________________ gimp-user-list mailing list List address: firstname.lastname@example.org List membership: https://mail.gnome.org/mailman/listinfo/gimp-user-list List archives: https://mail.gnome.org/archives/gimp-user-list
