Merging/fading images together & other things
Hi,

I'm wondering if someone would be able to help me. I've been playing around with Gimp and making some wallpapers and stuff recently. I'd really like to know how to do something like this: http://img834.imageshack.us/img834/5479/...366768.jpg

It's really hard to explain what exactly I want to know, but I'd like to make something similar with a collage of smaller pictures that all sort of merge into each other like they do in the example. Questions:

- How do I get the backgrounds (of the whole thing, and each separate image) to just fade out/into each other so seamlessly?
- Is there a way to make a layer transparent in some parts but not in others?

Hopefully someone will be able to help me a bit! Thanks in advance to anyone who does. Smile

Since we are talking about images. I am trying to color the background behind the image, but it keeps filling in the entire thing. Thanks!

Hi,

thanks for your reply! Can you tell me how I actually make the alpha channel you've pictured? I played around with the radial gradient thing in a circle selection but it didn't fade as nicely as yours did. Step by step? *is hopeless*

As in, it doesn't have to be a circle with a blur around it? Well, maybe it sounds better in theory than in practise.
