Great outcome Pat, well done. Ella, thankyou for checking that for me, I didn't realize after using 'combine background' I would have to delete the bottom layer, that's good to know. Also, your spot on about the scaling my image, I did wonder if that was a problem. Thankyou so much.

Oldmangrumpy, glad you will try the tutorial.
Although you have so much work to make your own.
I haven't had the time to try one out yet.

Pat, I love your outcome and thanks for the kind words.

RJKD, thanks and that's what the forum stands for "to learn from each other."
I've already learned a lot from others.

Ella - thanks for your assistance earlier. Once I checked the new layer checkbox, everything worked. I have GIMP 2.8.20 and I would have thought that its operation should be the same as yours. Whatever .. outcome attached below and next time I will also make sure I have back/front coins exactly the same size.

Thank you for the tutorial - learned a lot.

OMG, thanks to you I know that not every version of Gimp works exactly the same.
You found the solution yourself. I've edited the tutorial.
Thanks for letting me know. Two heads are always more than one :)

BTW, I like both sides of your coin very much :golden_wilber:

For those who had already downloaded the tutorial, I'll post the edit here.

In Options you have to check "create new layer" as well.

In Gimp version 2.8.22 it isn't necessary but you may do it as well. It makes no difference in the outcome.
In older versions you have to do it.

I'm still not good at smooth animations, however, getting there...

RJKD, did you delete the bottom layer after combining the background?
As I wrote before, with Filters > animation > combine background,
Gimp duplicates the background on all the layers.
But the original one has to be removed.
I think there is your problem.

However, very nice coins :)
