Thanks. It helps.
I would be much happier if I could have some kind of feedback. E.g.: a box showing the position of the layer into the canvas. I have to position a huge (>100) number of (partially overlapping) layers on a regular grid. The Layers come from a single huge image that has been cut and I want to reconstruct. Relying on the image itself for positioning leads to errord that sum up :( I know the single layers were taken 1553x1038 pixel apart (horizontalxvertical), so, having the offset, it would be trivial to position them precisely. Any further idea?? TiA Mauro _______________________________________________ Gimp-user mailing list Gimp-user@lists.XCF.Berkeley.EDU https://lists.XCF.Berkeley.EDU/mailman/listinfo/gimp-user
