What do you mean "shading"? Like for layouts, images, pixels, etc?

Well, there is an opacity option....Which is what some people use.....Do you want
something like that or pixel type shading?

Well, uh, since I don't know the difference it's not a pixel so I
guess the first one? I just need to make it realistic looking.

Well, if you want to make it realistic you could also resize it. Err, you could highlight
it, which is like how you pixel your flowers.....How big is the final result going to be?
Also, maybe you can make a few more lines next to the darker lines, in a lighter shade?

Ok. I'm making a book cover, which the cookie will be on, soooo the cookie will stay the
same size it is right now. See, I found a tutorial a while ago that showed you how to
shade on GIMP, but I can't remember it. I know I can just do the shading like I do on
Paint but I was too lazy to, which is why I wanted to do it on GIMP.

Shading on GIMP? Well, it's pretty much like shading on other programs. Sorry I'm not
very good at explaining things.

Resizing pixel art is a no-no.

Just use black and put it on a new layer. Use the erase option to make a curved moon sort
of shaped in desired shading spot. Lower the opacity a bit...And that's all~
