RE: How do i create a Transparent Texture?
In Gimp the transparency is controlled by the "alpha channel" (the first layer of an image doesn't get an alpha channel by default but it can be added). In many ways it behaves like a color channel, except when compositing the image: in that channel, a value of 0 means the pixel is fully transparent, while 1 makes the pixel fully opaque, and intermediate values map to partial transparency.

If a layer has an alpha channel, erased pixels (eraser tool, or selection+delete) become transparent.

The alpha channel can be edited separately through the "layer mask".

Tell us more of what you want to do (or what exact problems you are encountering) if you want more specific help. Don't hesitate to use attachments to show the pictures.
