Check to see if you have an alpha channel or not (Image>Alpha>Add Alpha if Add Alpha is gray, you have it). Try it with alpha (add alpha) and with out (Layers>Flatten Image). Other filters need only one layer or will only work on the bottom layer. As you get to know the filters, you get to know what they want. > > I know using the Gimp to remove redeye from a photo is like using an 18 > wheeler to move a single 2x4 across the street, but I'd like to be able > to do it.

My people looked alittle cross eyed, so be careful with the light spot.
