"How to" eraser tool ?
Greetings,
I have an image of clouds against (multi)blue sky.
And i would like to remove the blue sky, and show just the clouds.
I clicked on Eraser, then selected a brush.
But no eraser circle appeared.
Pls, how can i use the eraser tool?
Thanks...vmars316

RE: "How to" eraser tool ?
I tried your first solution, but no go.
I get lost if names you give don't jive EXACTLY with actual label names.

It took me a half hour to find the 'channels view'
Eventually, i fired up my 'agent ransack' searcher
and searched 'C:\Program Files (x86)\GIMP-2.0\share\gimp\2.0\help\en'
for *.* 'channel view', and found 87 *.html files where it is mentioned,
and 47 *.html when searching for 'channels view'

Anyways, i need to back up a bit and ask:
"Once i have selected a TOOL, say colorPicker"
and i want to disable colorPicker,
how can i get back to 'Point Tool'??".
Like when i first start gimp, all is new, and no tools are selected
and just the Point Tool is active.

Anyways,
(huge request)
could someone turn attached 'gimpLeftBottom-01.gif'
into a transparent gif, with no blue left, and only cloud showing.
And show me how it is done.
Or maybe there is a YouTube showing 'how to do'?

Thanks...vmars

Ah, I see what's going on:
1)
When I select Eraser, then move it over image,
I can see the WhitePointer and a small White rectangularBox.
But the PaintBrushCircle is so faint that I didn't see it.
It is too faint for me to work with comfortably.
?? Is there a way to make the circle line thicker ??
2)
?? How can i switch back to the PointerTool, from the currentTool ??

Thanks...vmars

2) "Measure tool" (Compass icon).

Ok,Thanks

I am getting the hang of it, see attach.
