sorry I did not get back to you..my interface looks like this when I open the layers dialog. I don't have all the graphics boxes underneath as you can see.

I haven't really worked with it yet..just wondering if I have a messed up download
I got it from the gimp site so all should be good http://www.gimp.org/

The Layers dialog can also be in its own window (if will appear as such the first time you use it) and you obtain it by Ctrl-L;, or, in the image window menu, by "Windows/Dockbale dialog/Layers" and you get this:

You can drag the Layers box by clicking on "Layers" inside it and drop it on "Paintbrush"' below the tools palette. Thus you'll learn to dock your first dialog... "Layers" is the most useful dialog of all.

he uninstalled and reinstalled gimp cause he dint know where to access the layers dialog, Tongue , Vj-
