I am trying to create a poster for a fundraiser. I can get as far as creating the legal size of it, but then I do not know how to put the 4 pictures onto it and then move them around and resize them. I...

Create a new file, then for each image you wan to add, go to the File menu and choose "Open as Layer". Then you will be able to move each layer around independently. For your text, go to the Layer menu, and then choose "New Layer". Then use the text tool and put your text in that new layer. To move layers, click on the icon in the tool panel that looks like a plus sign with arrows at each tip. You will click on that tool, then click on the layer you want to move in the layer palette, then click on the image and drag to move it.

Open each image in a new window. You can use the rectangle selection tool to select an area or drag the entire image on top of the other to create a new layer.

Where is the dodge tool?

Dodge tool should be on your toolbar- its like a black circle with a little line coming down diagonally from it- shares a button with sponge and burn so may be hidden behind them. Left hold click if it is that should bring up a little drop down that will let you select the tool you need.

Other than that, a much much better way to dodge/burn is to use layers- go to layers (top of the screen beside file, edit, etc)
select new->layer- this should open a box.
Now- set the colour drop down to none
Mode drop down- Set to soft light, feel free to experiment with hard light etc
Tick the soft light neutral colour (50%grey) box- should be at the bottom of the box.
Set opacity to somewhere between 5 and 10 %.
Click OK

This puts a new layer over your image, now you can use the paint brush- set your colours to black and white, you use white to dodge black to burn.
Though this may sound complicated, it soon becomes second nature once your used to it and gives you alot more control of your dodging and burning- leaving you with a much more 'natural' image. Once you get the hang of it you can add new layers (using the same process i went through above) to slowly build up your dodging and burning- changing the opacity level in the layer box to a higher setting means you put more paint on the image- your burning will be darker, dodging lighter.
Using mulitple layers also allows you to take away a dodge layer if you think you have gone to far- and saves you stepping backward when you mess up- its almost like painting.

That's not too bad, create a new layer and put it in soft light mode from the drop down list on the layer menu to the right. On the new layer, play around with lighter colors with the brush tool directly on the dark bags. It may take a little work, but it's the best way I know how to do it.

Crop the photo in diffeent shaps like heart.

The crop tool will not let you crop in shapes like elements cookie cutter tool will. However, there is a work around to do what you want to do which indecently is the same as you would have to do in Photoshop CS4.
1. Create a new document file or press Ctrl + N.
2. Open an image you want to crop.
3. Press Ctrl + A then Ctrl + C to copy the image.
4. Select the new document file you created and press Ctrl + V to paste the new image in a new layer.
5. Select the Rectangle tool or press U for the hotkey.
6. Move the mouse over to the Rectangle Tool and hold down the left mouse button and select Custom Shape Tool.
7. At the top of the menu you will see a Shape: icon with a pull down option. Left Click on the arrow to expand the window to select the shape you want. If you want more shapes to choose from when the shape window is displayed click on the arrowhead with a circle around it and select a new library or all.
8. Use the mouse to draw the shape to the size and location you desire.
9. The shape will be in a new layer with a mask which will cover the image. Hold down the Ctrl key and left click on the Shape 1 layer in the layer window. This will mask the shape and only the shape.
10. Press Ctrl +Shift + I to invert the mask selection.
11. Use the Select pull down menu to Feather, Modify, Contract, Expand and Border if you want apply those effects around the edge of the mask.
12. In the Layer window click on the eye next to the Shape 1 layer to hide the image.
13. Select the image layer you want to crop and press delete which will delete everything outside the custom shape you created.
14. Do not forget you can right click on the image layer and select Blending Option to add drop shadows and other special effects for the cropped shape.

Cut image and transfer to transparent background using gimp

Hi Jody,

Gimp can be frustrating, but it's one of the most amazing and powerful free applications out there. You're right...what you're trying to do is very simple, but you need to know a few tricks to get it to work well.

First, you need to use .PNG as .JPG files don't support transparency. When you try to save a file in .JPG that has a transparency, or alpha, channel, you should be prompted to "export" the image by flattening all layers, which essentially replaces all the transparent areas with the current background color (usually white).

Second, there's a tool that's been added to the most recent versions of the Gimp that does exactly what you want to do. It's called the "Foreground Select Tool" and is really simple to use once you get the hang of it. This tool was added in Gimp 2.4, so you'll need at least that version or higher to use it. This tool uses a two-step process: first you draw a rough circle around the object you want to cut out (your daughter), then you "paint" over the foreground object so the tool can sample all the colors you're wanting to extract. This sounds strange until you do it...once you understand, it's really pretty simple. You can read the docs for this tool here. There's also a YouTube video that shows the basic process. Apparently no sound on that video, but at least you can see what to do.

Not sure what was happening when you tried to use the scissors. There are so many variables, it's hard to tell. You probably didn't need the extra step of adding a transparent layer...when you had your selection copied to the clipboard, you could have used "paste into" or "paste as new layer" or "paste as new image" to get what you want.

Let me know if this doesn't answser your question.
