If I understand you correctly, create a GIMP image with three layers.
- Top layer has the pattern of images.
- Middle layer has a heart image.
- Bottom layer has something or nothing.
- Turn off the top layer and lock it.
- Select just the heart on the middle layer. If you filled it with a solid
colour you can select by colour.
- Go back to the top layer. Turn it on and unlock it. You should see the
heart outline on the top layer.
- Delete the heart from the top layer. Your middle layer will show through
the hole where the heart outline was.
- Delete the middle layer and your bottom layer will show through. If you
want to see right through to the transparency checkerboard, delete the
Hope that's what you want.

Subject: [Gimp-user] Erasing to background color
Thank you for this great group!
I have been stumped on a project that I have been working on all weekend.
I am attaching an image that is my inspiration. It is a McDonald's gift
with the french friends and a heart in the middle.
I want to recreate this image with a pattern of images and then insert a
image. Then, I assume that I can just somehow delete the heart image and
that space now be clear to the transparent background of the image?
I know this is possible, but have no clue how to do. Please help me! Thank
so much in advance for your assistance!
