Isolating elements

A few things to keep in mind when using GIMP to pare down an image to a single element.

  • Remember there are no vector masks, only raster.
  • There is no dedicated Crop tool because all you need to do is make a square selection and choose the "Crop to Selection" from the "Image" menu.

Otherwise all other tools act similar to Adobe Photoshop.

So when I don't have enough text here my footer doesn't stick to the bottom very well...
