Layer help?!
Alright, I've actually worked with gimp 2 years now. Now im working on layers. So I made a character, and a background, in two seperate layers.

I've tried googling it, but it was all confusing. All im trying to do is merge these two layers together combining the layers, having the background behind the character.

RE: Layer help?!
Do the above unless your character is not on a transparent layer. If not, select character, copy to new (transparent)layer, get rid of middle layer, flatten. To help a little more go to Youtube. watch these two. "scissors selection in gimp" ..football player.. by Hmoreloch1...and "How to crop images in gimp with paths/pen tool"...baseball player...by DeadBatteryVideos. Just other ways to do what I said above.
