creating a basic logo
So I've created a few different blocks of text, which appear as different layers in the layers dialog box.

The area I've created them in 640x400. The various words placed Move together is much smaller though. So I want to crop the image to just be their size. However, attempting to select all the text bits fails, as I seem to be confined to whatever layer I last clicked on the layers dialog box. e.g. The word "shop" is selected, and highlighting all words using Rectselect results in only the word "shop" being active to work with.

How do I unselect a layer, or choose all of them?? Confused

ah worked it out... I need another layer to work on. Looks like it's not possible to not select a layer!

Hey I have a Tutorial on Youtube about making logos for beginners. I'm sure you can get some tips from it and possibly have your questions answered. Just look up my channel DaviesMediaDesign and it's called "How to Make a Simple and Professional Logo with Gimp 2.6".
