Missing options in GIMP


This isn't exactly a Linux question, but it is about GNU Open Source Software. I've just started using the GIMP (always had it, never really used it until now). I've read a few tutorials, but can't follow the directions because my GIMP seems to be missing some things. The first missing item is Add (Alt-A), which apparently adds two layers. Others are Offset (Alt-O), Multiply (Alt-M), and Composite (I think). The keyboard shortcuts don't do anything, and I can't find them in the menus. I've looked in the Windows (latest non-GIMPshop) and Linux (inc. with Slackware 10.2) versions. Where are my missing menu options?

PS: Does anyone know of a good tutorial to learn the menus?
PPS: Could I make GIMPshop portable by moving its files into the appropriate Portable GIMP directory, or would it require some programming?

Which version is the tutorial geared at? There were some major changes
from 1 -> 2.x


Cheers,

Hmm... Just noticed the box at the top saying it's a few years old. Found a newer tutorial in German, but it was readable after Google Translate. It seems Add and Multiply became layer modes, and for composite I had to use a layer mask. Still, Offset is a really useful feature; why would they take it out? Although you can use the arrows to nudge.
I don't know why I didn't think of that first.

;} ... all is well, then. Well, with the exception that you're missing
a feature in the new(er) Gimp.


Cheers,
