How do I remove an alpha layer without...
I have a few images that I have saved from online that have an alpha layer in them. When I open them in GIMP, the checkerboard pattern makes it far too difficult to edit the image. When I try any of the obvious options for removing the alpha layer, the result looks awful.

How do I remove an alpha layer without changing the way that an image looks when it's viewed in an image viewer (or GIMP)?

RE: How do I remove an alpha layer without...
A minor update to a good useful response (I hope that the advice is or will be included in GIMP's user manual). The advice worked on some images that have an alpha layer, but some other images looked messed up after using the advice. When that happens, go to the Colors tab & click Invert.
