Pics on layers
I get pictures on layers, but the problem is I do not see the picture I paint with a brush or a pencil on it ( I can see just sth on the little layer pic in layers window,m and that is NOTHING!!!)

When I change transparency, I do see what I painted on a layer (flower, star, circle an dsimilar) but I don't see it WHILE PAINTING, so god bless how canthe pic look like when on edoes it WITH CLOSED EYES!!!

Please, if someone can help would be great!!!

(p.s. I do nto have an ebglish gimp, that is also a problem)

Many thanks!!!

RE: Pics on layers
some pics that might help

Language is a problem, do you have other than Slovene? The gimp help files are in several languages.

Your problem is layer visibility and properties.

You can have a solid, opaque layer, that is what you normally get as a new image, a white background layer.
You can also have transparent layers, that is what you usually get when you make a new layer.
but it is up to you what you make.

Here I am working on the red layer, It has a blue highlight here in the layers dialog (box)
I can see the layers above because they are transparent
I can not see the layers under because the red layer is opaque. (solid 100% opacity)

Now I turn the visibility of the red layer off - click the little eye icon.
I can now see the green layer
I can paint on the green layer - that is the working layer - it is highlighted

Hope this makes sense to you.
