Clear Globe Containers in GIMP by fence-post Clear Globe Containers in GIMP by fence-post
This was a very challenging accomplishment for me. I tried to mimic a PS tutorial, but with a different method for creating the globe. The difficult part was not creating the sphere, but turning it somewhat transparent. I was really new to GIMP when I attempted this, but I think I did alright. Hope you enjoy it.

The tutorial is in html format. Just download the zip file to your hard drive, double-click to open, extract to your desktop (or some other convenient location) and double-click on the html file. The tutorial will open up in your browser.

Let me know if you have any questions or need additional information.

Cheers!

If only the "cue" was known, we could be better prepared. Sorry you had that trouble, but glad you found the tutorial beneficial!

I'm a bit confused with this. When I created the globe, it started a new canvas thing. Is that supposed to do that and then later do I copy it to the first one onto the globe layer? Or how is it supposed to work? Using gimp 2.2.13.

Hi, Krueger!

I'm not really sure I exactly understand your question, but I'll give it a shot....

When you create the globe, you can create it on a new canvas if you want, but it's not absolutely necessary. Once you have the globe in place, I recommended that you duplicate the globe "layer", not the globe image (there's a difference between the two...you duplicate the layer by selecting the layer in the layer dialog window and at the bottom of that window there is a button that looks like 2 sheets of paper...click that button to duplicate the selected layer.). Once you do that, select the duplicate layer, which should be above your original globe layer, and go to Layer Menu > Merge Down to merge those layers together.

Now, if you did create your globe on a new canvas, you certainly can copy and paste it onto the other globe layer if you need to, but as I said above, you don't really need to do that.

Not sure if this answered your question, but I'll be glad to help you out in any way I can.

Take care.
