I have multiple layers open in GIMP. I would like to export a pdf that has each layer on a new page.
GIMP can't do this directly.
You need to use an intermediate file format.
sudo apt-get install imagemagick
- Export from GIMP as an MNG animation:
Convert to PDF on the terminal:
convert -reverse document.mng document.pdf
Gimp (2.10) does it already. No extra software or plugins needed.
- Import all images/pages as layers.
- File > Export As > filename.pdf
- Select Layers as pages and Reverse the pages order
- Click the Export button.
That's all! Enjoy.
There is a Gimp plugin that does this nicely.
The install path and how to change the permissions are covered in this blog post: https://www.zyxware.com/articles/4438/how-to-export-multiple-layers-from-gimp-into-a-pdf-file
