Q. How do I crop a circle out of a layer?
A. Sometimes you may want to highlight a part of a picture. A good way to do that is to place a translucent layer over it, make a circle on the layer, remove the circle and merge the layers. Here is the order of operations.
- Open a picture in GIMP
- Right-click on the layers panel to add a white layer
- Reduce the opacity in the layers panel to produce the translucent layer
- Click on the Ellipse Select Tool
- Draw a circle over the area to be highlighted
- Click Edit > Clear
- Merge the two layers.
Now delete the picture layer and save the translucent layer withthe circle as a PNG file. You can drag it over a picture in keynote and then move it around while recording in Screenflow. This can be used to make an animated GIF to highlight a place in your image.

Q. How do I stop those 9 related video links from showing up when an embedded YouTube video stops?
- A. The answer below is OBSOLETE. YouTube fixed their software so that visitors automatically see related videos. That means that if you have a video promoting your business, another video promoting your competition will likely show up. The only way to solve this problem is to use a different video hosting service such as Wistia.
