3 monochromes to 1 RGB

rich404
I want to fuse three monochorme images into one RGB image. I was told I should
use the function color>components>compose...

When I load the images separately, the other images never appear as options for
the "compose" function. When I load the images as layers of a single image, none
of them appear as an option.

GIMP help says absolutely nothing about this. It only assumes all of them would
be available to chose and attribute to a color channel.

What am I doing wrong?

What version of Gimp? 2.8 has a message bottom of the image window tell you only
possible on an image that has been decomposed. https://i.imgur.com/YEiBuSB.jpg
Gimp 2.10 has a big pop-up message.

However, 2.8 or 2.10 you can re-assemble like this:

Open the greyscale images https://i.imgur.com/YEiBuSB.jpg (detached the layers
dialogue for better visibility)

Make a new RGB image like this: black background + 3 layers filled Red Green &
Blue, each with a white layer mask https://i.imgur.com/pTMSJ3Z.jpg

see: https://docs.gimp.org/2.10/en/gimp-layer-mask-add.html

Copy in turn each greyscale image to the appropriate **layer mask**

Put each layer (R, G & B) into Lighten only mode https://i.imgur.com/MPt6bOV.jpg

Hi, I'm using GIMP 2.10.2

It worked with smaller images.

Somehow, the problem is related to the size of the images. They're monochrome
PNGs with tens of MB.
