Video 'Underlying layers'
Hey guys,

So i've been wrecking my head all day trying to figure out how & where to modify my ''Underlying layers'' for an image I am working on.

The overall project/design is for a t-shirt mock-up template. The whole idea is to make it as realistic looking as possible (photorealistic)

I found a great tutorial (which unfortunately was made for photoshop... :gaah ) I was to follow it and pretty much apply the instruction to Gimp. However, there is part where the ''Underlying layers'' are being tweeked.

I'm stuck at this point and hoping someone can point me in the right direction from here.


I am able to follow everything up to (4:32)

By the way,this is my first post, so if it's not in the correct area of the forum mods please correct me and thanks in advance.

Happy Holidays!

Looked at the video twice, and I am not sure what it means by underlying layers either. In this context maybe the duplicated logo image. Also AFAIK in PS when a 'layer style' is applied can make sub-layers where parts of the overall effect are generated. Not very clear in the video if those layers can be expanded.

I think this is where the 'layer style - blending options' came in. I do not know an exact equivalent in Gimp but duplicating layers and changing modes is often used in Gimp.

My 3 minute stab at getting something similar. All basic Gimp tools.

RE: 'Underlying layers'
Hey Rich,

Thanks for the demo!

Yes, it's true however, at (4:36 -5:12 ) he talks about "double clicking on the layer to open up the layer style dialogue"
This appears to simply be some way to further edit the layer in question, in this case it being the design itself intended to go over the t-shirt.

It's this section that offer's the ability to remove some of the darker areas which in term allows the 'textures' and 'folds' of the t-shirt to come thru the actual design itself.

This is the extra step after bump and/or displacement mapping that is applied.This is where I am looking for something equivalent in Gimp to apply.

The last and final step (5:15-6:20) he adds a 2nd layer of the design, but with the elements of the desaturated t-shirt layer and rides the opacity for 'authenticity' for the overall mock-up.

I am a bit confused about which actual commands within Gimp to use to perform the last step, perhaps you could guide me?

Other than all of that (LOL...) i'm pretty clear on what's going on here.

Without question, your example helped, as I see the bump map seems to offer a bit more effect in the initial step. In fact I think i'll try that one.

Glad I joined the forum, love the internet Cool

Thanks again!

If this is against the terms of the forum , please pardon me and I will stop posting here immediately
