I learned a new GIMP technique, BTW, using the measure tool. (I'm going to have to make a tutorial in my Gimp thread.)
You can "show" the grid over an image, then use the measure tool to find a location for center. (Any location, for that matter.) Pressing the
"CTRL" key lays in a nice horizontal and/or vertical alignment line. Working with frames, and dragging them to the vertex, "snaps" them into
place. Perfect alignment with no fiddling. Accurate to the pixel. Working with two windows, an animation and a background, with two grids, boils it
down to simple math, like Agarta said previously.
The more I play around, the more I learn.
I still have no design skills. I'm about artistic as a rock. I'll help where I can, and I can work with "premade" images, but creating the
artwork you guys produce? I'm still amazed at all the fine work and effort that goes into this thread.
