remove circles on the image
I have a world map(.gif file) which has yellow circles on top of it. I need to erase all the them from the map. How can I do it using GIMP? Is there anyway I can get my original picture back? Thank you and I appreciate any help.

RE: remove circles on the image
The dots seem to be completely obliterating the background, so even if they can easily be painted over when they are totally inland, those that straddle a coastline will require to redraw the coastline, or graft one from another map.

At that point I would suggest to start over using another map. Word maps are easy to find and generating a word map as above from another map would be a lot easier than removing the dots from this one. And this is true even if the part of the image you aren't showing contains a logo (in the worst case the logo can be extracted form the original and copied over) and in the best the logo can be redrawn using path and accurately scaled (so you end up with an very good looking image that maybe a lot bigger than the original).
