Visible layers are the layers which are marked with an “eye” icon in the Layers dialog.

  • Expanded as necessary: The final layer is large enough to contain all of the merged layers. Please note that a layer in GIMP can be larger than the image.

  • Clipped to image: The final layer is the same size as the image. Remember that layers in GIMP can be larger than the image itself. Any layers in the image that are larger than the image are clipped by this option.
