Hi there
Right l had a photo of a stained glass window and decided to add a creative zoom blur to it but could not complete the edit as l got lost at the end. When you say export image do you mean flatten??

Ah, I just meant save it as a j-peg or whatever you want to use (depending on what you plan to do with it). If you're planning on uploading it to the net then exporting the file as a j-peg is the way to go.

It's just another way of saying to save it in whatever format really; so in the image window of GIMP open File>Save As. In other applications you also use File>Save As or there is sometimes a File>Export option that gives you more control over the final image quality (for if you want to upload it to a website with certain restrictions on file size etc. for instance). You don't need to flatten the image, just save it and all will be well.

Sorry I confused you unnecessarily Smile

Nice to see! Well done, once you learn your way around the software things will speed up too. Its very daunting at first I remember :oP

So yes congrats and keep up the good work Smile GIMP really is fantastic, hope you keep playing with it and enjoy it.

If you'd like how to do a nice black border I can help you out there no problem. I'll write something up for the site, so keep your eyes peeled (though it may take a while to get up).

But one day it will be there anyways. I can go through it quickly for you on here if you'd like so you can try working it out with less intensive guidance Smile

No. You feed it a peanut every day at three o'clock for four days. On the fifth day you just bend over at three o'clock and wait. Eventually the worm will poke his head out of your bum wondering where his nut is - then you whack him on the head with your big hammer.*

I was told that playing Cliff Richard songs no stop does the trick. Is that true???

I hope I haven't missed my selective sharpening in Gimp lesson ?
I know you did say it might be a while though.
I'm off on a weeks hols soon and then needing to set up a new
laptop. I'll check back after that.
Hope there's not mass pages of OT chatter to wade thru... lol.
