Grayscale issue
So I was just digitally coloring a horse on GIMP, when I may have hit a key or something on my tablet (Intuos 4) when everything visible turned to grayscale. I had just saved it, so I closed the program and restarted it, and it was back to normal. Then somehow I did the same thing again, not sure how I did it, and all of my visible layers are grayscale. I hadn't saved my art at this point, so I saved it and shut down the program again. This time when I reopened it, it was saved in the grayscale. I can make my white bg visible, and by clicking the eye, and it shows up as an actual white. This does Not have to do with going to Image>Mode>Grayscale. It says that it is currently on RGB. Does anyone know any tricks or pointers? Or do you know a GIMP Master I can talk to? Thanks

Word of caution for future photo edits muhweeah. Work on a copy project file so you still have the original picture intact just in case something happens like this.

Once you save something if you don't undo the changes(Edit > Undo) before you exit the program, it will permanent the changes you make.
