    Been looking for a solution to this problem for a while. I've seen other users around the web with the same problem but no responses that fix it.

    I've also tried this on 2 separate installations on 2 machines; one XP 32 bit, one Windows 7 64 bit with the same result.

    I have an image which GIMP states is in RGB mode (on the top bar and in the menu system). When I try to use color balance on a section the Tool options say there are "no options for this tool" and using the Colors->Color Balance menu provides me with the sliders but changing any of the options makes no difference to the image.

    All help much appreciated ;D

    Make sure the layer does not have the Lock Pixels on. That's the only thing I can think of that might cause that.



    Can you post a screenshot of gimp open with color balance?

    Thanks but if the Lock Pixels is on, an error message is shown when editing is attempted. I've attached a file showing the layers, the RGB status and tool options

    Nope, upload the full size image, showing the other Gimp windows too.
