Layering + erasing with two images, no outline crap?
So what I mean is you start out with one image. Then, you create a new layer and paste another image on top of that image. When you use the eraser, it has a squiggly line highlighting all the stuff you erased. I want to get rid of that squiggly line. Any tips?? Thank you for any help!

I am asking because when you go layering-->add alpha channel, then duplicate the layer you can change the image coloring of the top image and erase parts of it and it does not have this annoying squiggly line. So there must be a way to do this..


EDIT: I figured it out! It is anchor layer. So you paste an image, then create a new layer, paste a second image in, and anchor the two. In case anybody stumbles upon this and is curious.....

1) get rid of the selection (Select>None) but it is often a bad idea
2) ask Gimp to not display them: View>Show selection (or Ctrl-T)

I edited my original post cause I had already figured it out. But ctrl-t works as well and is much quicker. Thanks I will remember that one! Smile
