Help with Gimp!?

Ok, so I have been messing with this for hours. Doesn't seem to work!

How can I copy and paste (or duplicate) an image from Gimp and back into the same Gimp project? Basically, I want two of the same images.

This is as close as I can get. Yep, you see a big black space. The image is there (although in Gimp, it's only viewable when you use the scale tool and click the area. Other than that, it's showing a grid rather than the image. It will only let me copy an image over the already existing one, I can't copy and paste an image, then move it (to where you would see the black in the above image). Basically, I'm trying to create some type of mirror image. But I can't do that without a second image.

Donald,
did you try coping the selected area to another layer ?

I use that method as an alternative for Ctrl+c , ctrl + v.

I have five layers, the black you'll see in that image above, that black is a layer, a layer with the duplicate picture, but it doesn't show up.

http://jumping-jelly-beans.zymichost.... - How's it look? I'm not an expert at making banners, but I think it looks nice! :)

Ayesh (or anyone)

How can I change the background color to be different on each side of an <!-- <hr /> --> tag?

I want my page header (where the banner is) to be one color - probably white and I want an hr tag, then another color below the line! is there an attribute you can put into the hr tag maybe?

Example....

White (header)




Gray (body)

The main issue I'm having with this is that it doesn't set itself to the hr tag. I can use div id in css, but then the color change isn't even with the line and there's a thin border of white around the whole page and if I don't fill the page, anything below my content (where the content stops) will also be white!

ok, been able to have the colors separate at the line by adding a margin-bottom: 0px; however, how can I have the body background color extend to the bottom of the page and how can I get the white border to go away?

Hi Donald

You might have to style the paragraphs to have a certain height, using css.

I hope that helps.

yes, I styled the hr tag to have a line-height of "0px" so that there is not gap between the break and the rest of the content. And then I added border= "0px" because I felt it blended better without the line! How do I get rid of a page border I didn't add?
