Remove sections of image to alpha

Hi, I am guessing this is fairly straightforward but I’m not managing to do it after experimenting. Thanks for you help.

How do I overlay stripes on this image that will remove the yellow down to alpha?

I tried putting a rectangle on top, making it’s color alpha, and changing blend mode to to some different things. I didn’t think this would be quite the trick, but it was a start. I made the second logo in GIMP, but can’t remember how I did the same thing.

Hello bmcminn, you need to use boolean operations. Here is a video how it works:

Thank you for the great video. I will go through the tutorial this weekend but need to get my logo done ASAP. (btw, I looked at 5 apps and this had the best interface balance between too simple and too complex!)

I am trying to accomplish this over a blurred oval and the blurring adjusts for after the boolean operation. How do I make the boolean take precedent? I’m assuming it would be the same if I wanted to make the oval a couple of layers.


Works great with solid edges.

But how to do it with blur?
