Fill Selection
Hi, I'm a noob to gimp and and trying to get started. I've been chipping away at getting familiar with the environment, but have currently run into an issue that I cannot find the answer to on the internets. I am trying to fill a square selection (selected with fuzzy select tool) on the background layer with the color red. When I go to fill it, either with the fill, paint or pencil tools, the selection is filled, but then the rest of the background(outside of the selection), which was white, is turned pink. What am I doing wrong? Thanks in advance....
