different shaped export jpeg
Hi Smile
You know how all pictures are rectangles....

Can you take a picture of a car; select it with the scissors tool Iscissors ; put it in a new picture file layer; and export it in the shape of a car? Idea

Then when you put it over another picture, it is already edited. Tongue

Probably not, but I thought I would ask.

Thanks. Shy

If you start wit a JPEG, the layer in Gimp may not have transparency enabled, so enable it with "Layer/ Transparency/Add alpha channel" (if it's grayed out you already have transparency).

Thank you very much. Tongue

It works like a charm. Big Grin
