at the point that you actually start to work on huge images, you might notice that a new layer is always always easier than working on a selection. so many of the selection tricks were added to gimp so that the photoshopusers wouldnt notice the change over and because gimp can do them, however, anyone who has actually stressed their computer out with huuuuuge images will certainly be able to tell you that working on selections is the least efficient way to handle an image with gimp. carol _______________________________________________ Gimp-developer mailing list [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://lists.xcf.berkeley.edu/mailman/listinfo/gimp-developer
