1) touch the background color with the magic wand. that will select the continuous area of color. then Edit ->Cut 2) Filters ->Colors ->Color2Alpha (on linux) might work also. i have a question, where is the Del button? carol _______________________________________________ Gimp-user mailing list [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://lists.xcf.berkeley.edu/mailman/listinfo/gimp-user
