Ellipse tool
I have 2 layers, the first is the background layer. Then 2nd layer has a picutre that I have used the ellipse tool on. My question is how can I use the eraser tool on everything outside of the ellipse tool? I can only use it inside.

Just invert the selection ("Select/Invert"), then everything but the ellipse is selected and if you strike [delete] you'll be left with only the ellipse contents. If you want to see the layer below, make sure that the layer with the ellipse can be transparent: "Layer/Transparency/Add alpha channel"
