Re: [Gimp-user] History Brush

2015-04-13 Thread Pat David

 It is a simple way to paint away one layer to reveal the one below. EG. I
 duplicated one layer then desaturated it. I then took a snapshot of that
 layer.
 I then used the History Brush to paint over certain sections to reveal the
 original coloured layer beneath.


Sounds to me like you want Layer Masks?  Take a look at this tutorial on
the website and see if it offers what you are looking for:

It may seem odd but you would probably need to explain what a history 
brush is, and how you use it, and what you're trying to solve. The 
GIMP developers are not in general Adobe PhotoShop™ users.
