[Gimp-user] Best way to blend 2 pics

A couple of screenshots that might help.

The stock Gimp 'fuzziest' brush is Hardness 025
Sized according to image. Use the 'fuzzy' edge around the perimeter.
For a more regular effect, paint in straight lines - Click beginning -
hold shift key down - click end of line.

The thing about layer masks are they are non-destructive. Make a
mistake, paint it out. The x key swapping FG/BG makes this very easy.

When it comes to gradients, it really does depend on the image, but a
shaped gradient follows the layer edges, Use Black to transparent
gradient then toggle the reverse icon. In Gimp 2.10 the gradient can
be adjusted on canvas. In the example, I would follow up with the
fuzzy brush again this time inside to boost the opacity of the

All sorts of things, best way is experiment.

Rich this is great. It opens up a whole new world of possibilities. Layer mask
are so cool. I was able to get it to work and still am experimenting, but
already have good results.

 I'll let you know if I need any more clarification. You're been great and I
know are a blessing to so many in this forum and beyond.
