Default How to merge layers on GIMP[x

How to: Merge Layers on GIMP

So this is pretty simple & there isn't really a final result. This is something you can do while graphic making, so it's more like a tip[x

Ok so open up GIMP[:

Step 1: I started out with 3 layers. But I want to merge the first 2 layers so I can have 2 layers in total instead of 3. So this is how it looks like right now:
Click the image to open in full size.
I'm going to merge the text 'Cristina' & 'New Layer'

Step 2:
Click on the layer you want to merge. So it will be highlighted blue. Now scroll over the middle between the eye & the picture of the layer. There should be a box in the middle. Click that
Click the image to open in full size.
There should a little gray chain that showed up now that you clicked on it. This lets you know they're linked together.
Click the image to open in full size.

Step 3: Repeat step 2 with the other layer you want to merge. It should look like this:
Click the image to open in full size.

Step 4: Now click on the first layer you linked. In other words, click on the layer which you first put the little gray chain. In my example, I linked the text 'Cristina' first & then 'New Layer' so I would go back and click on Cristina.

Step 5: Now that you're back on your first layer you linked, right click it and then should have something pop up with options. Click 'Merge Down'
Click the image to open in full size.

Step 6: Now the Cristina and New Layer are together as one layer. So it should look like this:
Click the image to open in full size.
Instead of having 3 layers, you now have 2.
If you want you can repeat the whole process and merge the new layer with the background.
It may seem to take a while but it only takes me a couple of seconds to d this. So it's not hard[;

Hope I helped[x
