About This Class

In this class, I provide an in-depth look at Layers and Layer Modes in GIMP 2.10. I start with an introduction to Layers, followed by a more advanced discussion on this topic in the first lecture. Then, in the remaining lectures, I provide an introduction to the concept of Layer Modes and go through each of the 38 Layer Modes found in GIMP in detail. 

Layers are perhaps the most important and most commonly used item in GIMP, and Layer Modes help improve the functionality of GIMP while taking your compositions to the next level.
