less saturated won't work for grayscale images, but darkened would be OK I
think, but I don't think I can do that on my second day of gimp hacking
indeed ;-) But black is a useful start, it can always be improved to a darkened
image any later time (for now you can always toggle the checkbox if you want to
see what the outer region of the image looks like).
