I have some additional info: I used undo to return to where the strange animation was and now see that at the very top of the layers view it says Floating selection - Transformation.
I used "open as layer" to open the logo. I see that as soon as the logo appears it has a dotted line rectangle around it's border. The dotted lines are moving around the rectangle. As soon as I choose the scale tool and scale the logo smaller the outer dotted line rectangle does not have dotted lines moving around it anymore. Instead I have a smaller dotted line rectangle around the logo border and these dotted lines are moving. This is the instant that a new layer appears at the top - Floating selection - Transformation. Then when I choose Color to alpha, this is when the animation affects the black letters of the logo Here's what my undo history says: move layer Scale to 494x605 Color to alpha later when I moved the logo with the move tool the Floating selection - Transformation layer disappeared and everything was OK -- GerryPeters (via www.gimpusers.com/forums) _______________________________________________ gimp-user-list mailing list List address: email@example.com List membership: https://mail.gnome.org/mailman/listinfo/gimp-user-list List archives: https://mail.gnome.org/archives/gimp-user-list
