Adjustment layers do sound like a great idea but they're not a part of
the GIMP. I found a script-fu plugin that does something similar, but is
limited because it only allows the user to apply specific functions:
I find that copying the current layer to a new one and practising on
that, or using a large undo buffer helps a lot. There's also the
"anti-erase" function of the Erase tool that looks like it restores part
of the layer below the one you're working on.

complaining messages about their absence (in contrast to Photoshop).
I am a newbie, and I was advised by an expert friend to use Photoshop due
