Introduction to the “Layer” Menu
The Contents of the “Layer” Menu
The items on the
menu allow you to work on
layers. In addition to accessing the menu from
the Image menubar and by right-clicking on the image window, you can
get to it by right-clicking on the thumbnail of a layer in the Layers
dialog. You can also perform several of the operations on this menu by
clicking on buttons in the Layers dialog, for example, resizing a layer,
managing layer transparency and merging layers.
This menu can contain other entries besides the ones described in this
section. They are not part of GIMP itself,
but are extensions (plug-ins). Please refer to the documentation about
the plug-ins for more information.
