5 things you can do with linked layers

Postby gimpeRaven » Wed Oct 26, 2011 1:58 am

Spoiler: show
^-^ Hello dear Gimpers,

:wilber: Layers which are linked together can all be affected by the move (the most commonly used), rotate, scale / resize, perspective and flip tools. To toggle the links or chains, click the chain looking icon next to the eye icon in the layers tab. You can shift + click to toggle all or only one. Make sure that a linked layer is active.

So next time you want to resize a lot of pictures into same sizes, open them as layers and link them!

And if you have the filter "Layer Groups" you can delete linked layers and more. :)
I highly recommend it.

Is it the Rod?
Latest ver. was uploaded on June 30, 2009. A little old already. So is this the feature that will be added to the next Gimp releases? ;D

No actually in Gimp-2.7.4 which is already available you get actual folder icons to place layers in.You can name each of these folders.
Mig-Layer-Groups.scm is just a linker script.It uses linked layers to do different things to them.
And yes that is the correct script you mentioned above.

Knew it. You can also link paths together and use the same tools.
