How do I modify an ellipse?
After I have drawn an ellipse, how do I change its shape into a raindrop/teardrop? Can I do this by using the pen tool?

Thanks,
yeto

RE: How do I modify an ellipse?
Is it possible to make a teardrop/waterdrop in Gimp like in the tutorial below? When I click on the pen tool I don't get the option to "delete anchor point" like in Photo Shop. Does Gimp not have this feature?

RE: How do I modify an ellipse?
I have the xcf downloaded and opened with 2.8. How do I check the paths list? I have the paths tab clicked but all it is showing is the drop shape and the reflection shape. Is that all I should be seeing or is there someway to see the path steps?

Thank you for taking the time to help,

RE: How do I modify an ellipse?
Okay, thanks--I see how you made the teardrop. I understand paths a little better now. I guess with Gimp I cannot start with the ellipse tool like you can with Photo Shop. I don't have Photo Shop so no big deal. I would think though that it would be easier to do something like this if you could start with an ellipse.

Again, thanks for taking the time to help,

Again, thank you for taking the time to reply. With the information you have provided I think I will better understand "paths" and how to incorporate this technique into my work.

Kind regards,
