How to draw window and its frame

RE: How to draw window and its frame
Besides the obvious cut & paste, you can define parts of your windows (especially the frame) as brushes (makes them picture, save as Gimp brush (.gbr), and store in your .gimp-2.6/brushes directory). If you define a 100% spacing and use the constrained drawing to draw straight vertical and horizontal lines, everything will line up nicely. You'll of course need a brush for each side of the frame (different shadows), and work them so that the ends join up neatly.

Thanks for your reply.

Can you tell me where I can find a guide to draw something like you said?

I don't understand that question? What kind of guide are you talking about?
