rotating while opacity turned on
is it possible to rotate a layer in gimp with the opacity turned on?

everytime i rotate something the object becomes a full solid even though i had set it with an opacity.

RE: rotating while opacity turned on
There is a specific "opacity" slider in the Tool options ("preview" section) of the Rotate tool (and in the options for several others layer transforms: scale/shear/perspective).

RE: rotating while opacity turned on
Btw, just in case you are trying to align stuff between your rotated layer and the layer below, there is a very efficient script for this:

http://registry.gimp.org/node/18961

Just make a "Path" with 4 points, 2 on one layer and 2 on the other, and it will size/rotate/scale one layer so that it's two points match those of the layer below. besides ease of use, the benefit is that the whole thing is done with one single transform under the hood, so there is very little image alteration (when done by hand there are at least two, one rotate and one scale).
