Default How to Add a Background on Gimp. ~Requested by D<3BABV~

This guide was requested by Daniela. I'm going to use Emma's order from my shop on this.

Okay so,


1.) Open up GIMP. (Geez! What a surprise! xD)

2.) Go to "File," "Open" and open up the background you want to use.

Here's how you do that:
Click the image to open in full size.


3.) Now go to "File" and "Open as Layers" and open the picture you want to put on the background. (Preferably a transparent picture.)

Here's where you can find it:
Click the image to open in full size.


Here's what it'll look like when after you add it (I'm using a transparent picture of Emma):
Click the image to open in full size.


4.) Adjust as desired by using the "Move Tool." Click the image to open in full size.

5.) Do what you want with it! Add text, sparkles, etc.

6.) Save as a .png file.


Here's my final result! (Please do NOT take)
Click the image to open in full size.


If you need any further help or have any questions, feel free to VM me or post here.

Post your results!

Yeah. I am always so upset when I have given millions of people rep points, and then I can't give them to a kind and or helpful person (ex: Nicki. XD). :[
