The Contents of the “Layer” Menu

The commands in the Layer menu allow you to work with layers.

In addition to accessing the Layer menu from the Image menubar and by right-clicking on the image window, you can work on layers by opening the Layer dialog and, for example, change layer transparency and visibility, create new layers and layer groups, add a layer mask, merge or duplicate layers. This dialog also has a right-click context menu with mostly the same commands as shown in the main Layer menu.

[Nota] Nota

Besides the commands described here, you may also find other entries in the menu. They are not part of GIMP itself, but have been added by extensions (plug-ins). You can find information about the functionality of a Plugin by referring to its documentation.
