What do you see in the Layers list instead? How did you open the photo? Using File/Open, or dragging it in (empty) Gimp? Or dragging over existing image?

erratic/but nothing when it happens=Click photo & then go to open with. do think maybe just need to work with Gimp more. It is helping me to understand & use PS 9/but I will be back because the more I learn the less I know

So you are not opening the photo from Gimp, but merely asking the file explorer to open Gimp on it? Is that for Jpeg or for "raw" photos? What operating system to do you use?
