I don't know enough to know what to look for.
I simply want to make a selection transparent. I can make the selection
OK, but when I click the little red eraser thingy (for which the
tooltip says "Erase to background or transparency" I can't make it make
the selection transparent no matter what I try.
Can anyone tell me what I should be doing please?
Try Layer->Transparency->Add alpha channel.
And then just cut your selection (ctrl-X).
