Clipped to backside Layer — this selection is rather like the former one, yet instead of cropping the layer to suit your canvas, the newly merged layer is cropped to slot the scale of regardless of the backside layer has. Discard Invisible Layers — when you comprehend that you are not going to wish the hidden layers after doing this merge operation, you could turn on this money field and any hidden layers are deleted while the merge is entire. permitting this feature signifies that when you whole the merge, you just have one layer to be had within the stack. Flatten snapshot — firstly look, this seems to be a shortcut operation that is like operating Merge obvious Layers with the Clipped to photograph choice and the Discard Invisible Layers fee field enabled. besides the fact that, there is another factor knocking down does that merging avoids: a flattened photo doesn't have an alpha channel. this is often really like operating Merge obvious Layers after which elimination the ultimate layer's alpha channel. this can be worthy in the event you recognize you are exporting to a picture structure that does not aid alpha. you could entry this functionality like the Merge seen Layers characteristic: right-click within the Layers conversation or decide on picture ⇒ Flatten photograph from in the picture window. caution do not forget that merging and knocking down are everlasting operations. when you do them, you could opposite them provided that they're nonetheless on your Undo historical past. when you run out of Undo reminiscence, there isn't any method to retrieve your unique layers. consequently, it's your decision to replicate your layers ahead of merging them, or use Layer ⇒ New from seen to get a merged layer with no destroying your originals, or replica the full photo (Image ⇒ reproduction or Ctrl+D) and practice your merge or flatten at the reproduction. on the other hand, you should use GIMP's new layer teams, defined within the subsequent part. determine 6. five The Layers Merge ideas conversation appears to be like if you run the Merge seen Layers operation. Grouping Layers The merging and knocking down capabilities are nice, quick, and trustworthy. despite the fact that, they're additionally harmful. except you're employed with duplicates of your unique layers, there isn't any method to tweak or regulate these originals after you could have merged them. this may make picture modifying a good looking complicated activity, particularly in case you are more likely to require a number of revisions of a unmarried snapshot. to aid alleviate this, GIMP builders brought layer teams for the two.
