Yeah, it blurs in the preview window. Oh, now it's working. Maybe GIMP just needed turned off for a while before it would work? I should have just taken out the cartridge and blown in it... Thanks for your help!
I guess you can't access PM's yet so I'll respond here. The only thing I can think of is that you might have a selection in place, which would stop the blur from happening.
Is there a blur in the preview window?
While I'm not temporally new to the forum, I did take a sabbatical from trying to make maps after (and partially due to) failing utterly. But, I have renewed my efforts, and am stuck in what is probably the same place I was before, although I don't remember for certain. On your "Using GIMP to Create an Artistic Regional RPG Map" tutorial, post #6, when I copy the Land Mask layer and rename it Sea Shape, the subsequent Gaussian Blur does not appear when I apply it, and I do not understand why. I followed all of the previous instructions exactly, and my settings all appear to be the same as those on your screenshot. Any advice on how to fix this would be most appreciated!
Thank you very much!
