can't get back
ok i was swimming along fine erasing parts of the image I did not want. but then I selected the magic wand and now I can't get back to the eraser. Angry

so I first went layer\transparency\add alpha channel
then I was erasing the background I didn't want
then I selected the magic wand and couldn't figure that out but I saved the image as xcf. No I opened up the file and can't just erase. I did however figure out how to use the wand, somewhat :-).

Yes. Most tools work only on the selection when there is one and do nothing if used outside of it. So when something doesn't work the two things to check are 1) selection and 2) active layer.
