Today we return to talk about graphics. In reality, today's is a little advice on the Gimp configuration that will save us a lot of time.

When you are working with very complex images, with a nice amount of active levels will be simple to move a level with the instrument “plastic“. The clicked level even if you have not selected will remain selected for as long as the mouse will drag him, but once you make the change the selection will return to the previous level.

To overcome this problem you must get your hands on Gimp settings:

From the menu bar: “Edit” – “Preferences” – “Tools Options
In the lower part of the options we are “move tool
The voice “Set the level and plotted as active” It is to enable.
