How to name a layer output to GIMP

(David Tschumperlé) #21

I’ve tested at home, with GIMP 2.9.5 running on Ubuntu 16.04, and it works (output blending mode ‘overlay’ really sets it to overlay).


Thanks I’ll rty again at home, maybe I did something wrong. which I didn’t notice yet.

:smiley: Now I get it!
As the duscussion was about output into Gimp layers I thought pos was the position in the layer stack. So it’s no surprise that all my tries with 1, -1, 2, -2 etc… didn’t affect the layer position and weren’t really visible, because I couldn’t see the pixel shift.

Ah OK. The order of the layers is just given by the order of the image in the G’MIC stack, the top layer being [0] and the bottom layer being [-1]. This info thus don’t need to appear in the image name.
