Add the IMG jpeg over the background. File -> Open as Layers. Give the IMG layer an alpha channel for transparency. Layers -> Transparency -> Add alpha channel Use the fuzzy select tool with a threshold set to about 50. Click in the grey area to make the selection. see screenshot 1 Now you can use Edit -> Cut to remove the original background allowing the new background to show. see screenshot 2 Save your work as a Gimp xcf for future use, It saves all layers, guides, all sorts of things. When complete Export as a png / tiff / jpeg. rich: www.gimp-forum.net Attachments: * http://www.gimpusers.com/system/attachments/852/original/01-select.jpg * http://www.gimpusers.com/system/attachments/853/original/02-select.jpg -- rich404 (via www.gimpusers.com/forums) _______________________________________________ gimp-user-list mailing list List address: email@example.com List membership: https://mail.gnome.org/mailman/listinfo/gimp-user-list List archives: https://mail.gnome.org/archives/gimp-user-list
