Removed Person From Photo, But Cannot Paint Over Area
I was able to remove a person from a photo use the path tool, select path, then hitting the delete button. However, I cannot seem to use any other tool to fill color into the white area left behind when I removed the person. What am I doing wrong?

- There is a selection somewhere else (paint tools are only active in the selection). use Select/None (Ctrl-Shift-A) to remove all selections
- You have another layer/channel active: use the Layers list or looks at the bottom of the
image, the status bar tells you on what layer/drawable you are working. If not the right one, select it in the Layers list

Thanks! Select/None was the answer.
