Can someone simplfy this toturial for me please
I've noticed during my many hours of research on the net, that there are quite a few of the same tutorials written for both Photoshop & GIMP. I''ve showed my son this tutorial: http://www.photoshopessentials.com/photo...page-5.php & he is driving me nuts. He just want to have an image of himself & his daddy exactly like this one. However I cannot get past page 5 of this tutorial since then I've done a lot of research on layering & masking but I cannot appyl what I've read as yet. Can some one please translate the photoshop instructions into GIMP without the lengthy elaborations or point me to a tutorial etc. I will read up on the details etc. Thanks.

- add layer mask to face layer, initialiaze with white (full opacity)
- whatever is painted in black on that layer will make the face transparent, so make a selection covering the are you want to make transparent, and bucket-fill with black.
- before you bucket-fill, you can apply Select/Distort to add jagged edges to the selection.

Thank you very much for the advise I finally got it, this is a really a labour of love. Now, I am struggling as I explore possibilites on how to get the other image between the background & layer one. This exercise is having no mercy on me, I am dog tired almost a whole day has gone by. I guess it's no pains no gains because I am learning as I go along.
