Can GIMP do this....
I have a texture file I wish to modify. It's a head skin texture for Skyrim.

Now, what I want to do, if its possible, is to create a layer over that texture, but only covers half of the skin texture. Paint the new layer, then duplicate and mirror the new layer then combine it the skin texture.

However, the skin texture is not symmetrical. If you were to create a new layer and went half size(1024x2048), its really noticeable as the edge of the new layer does not run down the middle of the nose. So, is it possible after duplicating and mirroring the new layer, to reposition the duplicated layer to properly line up with the skin texture?

Thanks for replying.

Hi,
In the image below I explain how to move/align layers in Gimp.
Whether that solves your particular issue or not I can't say since you didn't post any attachments yourself and my crystal ball is out of action. You may need UV mapping and 3D software like Blender to achieve what you are asking for.
