Adding monogram on garment
       
OK, I am NEW to gimp. I have played with it, watched tutorials, etc. and still cannot figure out how to do what I want to do. Could someone PLEASE give me a step by step, or point me to an exact tutorial to do this? I do monogramming, and have an online store. I want to do a monogram in my software, then save it as a jpeg. I want to then put that on top of a jpeg of a sweatshirt, as if it were monogrammed, so as not to have to actually do a shirt for a sample.
Not sure if I attached these photos right.

[*]Load the monogram picture.
[*]Make the layer able to be transparent: "Layer/Transparency/Add alpha channel"
[*]Make the background transparent: "Colors/Color to alpha", and pick the background color using the color picker button in the color selection dialog.
[/qoute]

ADD THIS STEP:
Then before or after you load the sweater pic, change your monogram layer mode to "Darken Only"
The color to alpha gets rid of the background color on the image (without it, you'll have a yellow tint in "Darken Only" now its clean Smile )

Quote:Darken-only of course only works if the monogram is darker that the garment (but I don't see much difference with "normal", assuming the monogram is on transparent background ).

Sorry, your right, when I did it I think I messed up on the color to alpha bit, it turned out semi-transpaerent & lighter. It didn't pick up the background color fully.
