    2.4 and up...

    Like Joe said, post a sample (in a new thread, please....this one is getting way big) and we'll try and help you along.

    Strangely, I downloaded the colors file to exactly where it said to, but nothing happened. Does it matter that I had to MAKE a palette folder where it said it would be?

    HI all, I've been trying to follow this tutorial (which has been great up to this point), and I have hit a snag. I am confused by the following step...

    Now we want to create a heightfield from this. The easiest way I have found to do this is to copy the current visible image (Edit->Copy Visible) then paste it (CTRL-V) to a floating selection. Click the New Layer button to get it on its own layer rather than a floating layer. Now stretch the colour range out (Color->Auto->Normalize):

    What layer should I be making a copy of?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    I found I had to manually add the palette even after extracting it to the appropriate location. Go to the palettes menu and IMPORT PALETTE

    As far as I can remember, gimp should have set up the directories.....

    Did you put it in the install path directory, or in the user directory?

    Er... I opened the ZIP file and extracted it to the (newly created) palette folder.

    EDIT: Didn't notice the other guy's post. I got it now.

    I also am having troubles at this stage. I ma getting to this point then get confused with your layers and masks. The pasting of the new layer is about where I get lost then my screen doesnt match you posts.
    Any input would be helpfull.

    Edit->Copy Visible will make a copy of the image, exactly as you see it (with all the layers). It is kind of like flattening the image into one layer then copying that into a new layer.

    Ambroise - I hope that helps you, too.
