Hey all,

I'm trying to follow a tutorial that was written for PS7 in my GIMP 2.8.

Here are the starting instructions:

File > New... > 1024 pixels x 1024 pixels, 72dpi, RGB Color
Hit the [D] key to make sure you are using the default black and
white colors. Then fill the background layer with some clouds.
Filter > Render > Clouds
Create a new layer and call it "paint layer". Then klick OK.
Layer > New > Layer > "paint layer"
Next, create a Threshold Adjustment layer.
Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Threshold...
The default name "Threshold 1" is good enough. Just klick OK.
You should now see something like this:

The thing is, I don't think GIMP has "Adjustment Layers." So what do I do?

Gimp has a function in the "colour" menue with the name and function of "threshold". That should do the work. You need to copy your work layers though, if you want to make later adjustments.

Thanks! I'll give that a go.

Fortunately though, I found an old copy of PS that I can use too.

You're going through Tear's Saderan Tutorial aren't you?
