Exclamation Colouring the lineart - please help!
Hey.. I'd love to colour linearts with GIMP. But I have few problems. Actually only one. First my problem was that I was only allowed to use black/grey colors (so gotta change the photo as a RGB mode). Now I have new problem. You see, I've made few layers (layers for background, lineart, colors..) but when I'm trying to color the lineart (and I'm "in color layer") any of that color isn't showing? U know what I mean?

I dunno what I'm doing wrong. And I made the color layer as transpert. I don't know is the "lineart layer" transpert, but haven't seen a button where I could change its mode.

Hope you can a) understand me cuz my english sucks haha b) help me out of this problem.
Thank you so much if you guys can help me!

xx, Audrina

one way to do it when coloring pages is to start another layer over the line art and set the layer mode to multiply (option on layers dialogue tab above your opacity meter).
Hope this helped, best of luck.
