How do I exit out of Transform?
I was trying to rotate an image, and after successfully doing so, now I can't exit out of the rotate tool. The layer keeps saying (Transformation). How do I get out of this mode? I want to start duplicating this image and rotating them to different positions, but I need to learn how to get out of this mode.

RE: How do I exit out of Transform?
The rotate tool has an attached dialog with a "Rotate" button (and fields to enter angle, etc, if you aren't doing it interactively). Once you have rotated everything to you liking, you must click that button to make the rotation permanent and exit. This dialog may have been moved out of sight (hidden by another window...).

If you have a selection ("Select all" or partial), clicking the Rotation button creates a "floating selection" (see the Layers list (Ctrl-L)) and you have to anchor that selection or create a new layer from it to continue.

Ok, thanks a lot. I'm still in the Photoshop mentality, so it's still a little frustrating for me that GIMP has different shortcuts, modes, etc.
