This tutorial is for GIMP version 2.8 and is intended to teach beginners how to use the software. GIMP is a great free alternative to Photoshop.

    Is the alpha channel basically a layer of transparency which has to be created to get rid of the white background and stuff? 
    Sometimes I have problems understanding the concepts of the tasks you perform

    There are people who speak badly about Gimp because it is free software and inferior to Photoshop. I observe your work, I understand that software is just a tool in the hands of the artist.

    Nice tutorial.
    Another tip for GIMP users to scroll without hold click mousewheel, just hold down the spacebar and move your mouse.

    I love watching your videos. I've been using Photoshop CS6 since 2012, and I recently got Gimp because I got a new computer and I want an alternative to Photoshop since I can't afford to upgrade to Adobe CC. Anyway, I don't know how many of your videos I've watched already today about Gimp, but for this image that you're using, the phone image has a reflection. (1) would you recommend creating a reflection of the portrait you're popping out of the phone screen for the sake of continuity and if so, (2) how, in Gimp would you go about doing that?

    heeey nick would you recommend always using a 1280×720 size cause ive been trying some off your videos but with different picture sizes and it messes a lot up

    hi nick. a quick and easy way to go about allowing pop out images.
    Select part of the phone layer (diagonally dividing in half or doing quarters on each side) then adding your desired image in between layers. It's much faster but still only works with images with out backgrounds.
    It mostly depends on the image. Otherwise the phone layer trick wouldn't work efficiently if the image has a background to remove.

    Hey Nick! How do you finish the border around the image? You jumped this explanation on the video but I'm missing it. I'm trying to apply this technique somewhere else but I can't get passed the details like the eyelashes and always end up with a border around the face after cropping that doesn't look nice. Have you explained this in any of your tutorials?

    August 11, 2018 at 07:43

    Thanks NICK! You're the best like always! I really think GIMP should give a shoutout to you cause you made wanna buy the software

    I did it! This is a nice trick, much easier than deleting the unwanted parts with an eraser tool. https://prnt.sc/fsufcw

    You can also use "command + X" on a mac to delete. 🙂
