layer/tool window?
2.8.4 Version Gimp

The version above is what I have now. Can anyone tell me what this window is, where to find it in Gimp? I am watching a video on Gimp (don't know what version he has) and the guy has this window open but the video starts after he selected the window and I can't find it?

Thank you to anyone who can help me, Denise

Thats a shot from that blurry video-link you posted yesterday. Not bad I did watch it but low-res.

Old-ish using Gimp 2.6 That is the floating dialogs dock you get
and that is the layers dialog.

In the video, although there is no audio to tell you what is happening, at the end where there is 2 layers, the video cycles through some of the modes to show the different effects.

From memory it is
duplicate layer
desaturate top layer
edit:>> I think there was an invert somewhere about here. I will have to look at the video again. lol
apply edge detect - (Edge detect -> Edge, maybe prewitt in the drop down options, could be wrong here)
change the layer mode (maybe difference)
adjust the opacity.

Thanks Rich, I am finding there is so much more to GIMP then I realized. What a lot of options for a free software. I think my best bet is to "read the instructions".

I appreciate your reply though, I can go ahead with making a background, which is what I am afterSmile

Thank you again, Denise
PS I did figure out how to use the "dockable dialogs" so I can set up my GIMP window with, for now, the tools I'm most familiar with, very cool!
