Can't modifi some pictures
Hi

I am long time GIMP user and I realy like it. But recently - I think with 2.8 version I discovered that some times, when I am opening some logos or pictures (png, jpg etc) I can't do basicly nothing. Most menu items are greyd out and I can't use them. Mean while - color profile is sRGB. I can't rezise, crop - even is impossible to save work. Why? What is wrong?
I added one picture to this post also - whitch I have right now problem. I want to rezise it - but I can't. Why?

I am able to scale (resize) your attached image without issue.
Can you tell us your OS and what the exact version of Gimp it is. 2.8.n?
Which method are you using to resize (scale) your image.
I loaded your image, then under the image menu, Image->Scale Image, then I entered the new dimensions and it worked ok for me.

RE: Can't modifi some pictures
Hi

OS is Ubuntu 13.10 and GIMP is 2.8.10

And now I am thinking, that I am found one bug what causes that. I tested it with this uploaded picture and I can rezise it now also. What I discovered - probelm occurs when I am opening picture with - Open with GIMP (GIMP was not beffore open). Then I can't do nothing with some pictures. But the same picture - when I am first opening GIMP, then I choose File - Open and choose that picture - all works as needed....
