Edit only alpha channel
I'm trying to create an image which emulates a solar corona (it's basically just a blurry circle). It's as easy as making one brush stroke in gimp, but my problem is that i can't get all the channels to be correctly set.

Ultimately i just want to edit the alpha channel, NOT the RGB ones. They should all be pure white, or 255, 255, 255. But for some reason, no matter how much masking or color selection or clicking only the alpha channel and not the RGB ones or anything that i do, i cannot keep the RGB white while editing the alpha channel, every stroke that affects alpha seems to invariably affect the other three.

How can i edit ONLY the alpha channel?
