Background Image
When I open a image the image opens in the large center Gimp window but does not open in the right side layers window as a background image. Why not.

I opened a picture of my car & I want to try to change the color. A YouTube Gimp video shows using layers but I don't have a picture of my car in the layers window.

I have experienced something along those lines, and I find that if I "do something" to the image, the layers dialog updates with the correct image. So try doing a rectangular selection, then removing the selection of course.

RE: Background Image
Hmmm. Can you post a screen shot with your main image window and the Layers window?

How do I post a screen shot?

I tried rectangular selection, but how do I remove it? thanks bill

In image menubar, Select > None
Or keyboard shortcut Shift+Ctrl+A

Hope that helps.
