Reversing a .gif
I see the reverse layers option, I use that when I save and export it as a gif
The gif becomes all grainy and white when it started out and you can see the layers from before still showing while the other layers are playing.

Anyone help me out on this?

RE: Reversing a .gif
Graininess is likely the result of the dithering: GIF only supports 256 colors per image, if you have more colors dithering is used.

Normally the dialog you get when you save as a GIF animation has a "frame disposal" that you should set to "replace".

Attach your XCF (or a smaller version that still demonstrates the problem) here so we can have a look.

I am not sure as you have not posted this, but are you trying to make an Animation? If you are not use PNG...
If you are trying to make an animation is it a very large file size?
