the only examples i have are the art i was able to make with TheGIMP for
all of these years. if you could provide for me how this layers thing
you ask for would improve this. perhaps it would improve my
photography. the best way to approach this is to show what the current
users can gain.
if you can show me an example of some gimp art that could have been
improved with this enhancement you ask for, it would be easier to
understand your need.
