    I downloaded Gimp GNU to my PC.

    Some files didn't download correctly.

    Couldn't find a file opener for those files.

    But I can open GiMP and ecover templates.

    The problem is that the image eraser isn't available.

    I want to delete an image from an ecover gimp template but don't have access to any button with that function.

    I have Window XP.

    Anybody have a solution?

    Thanks,

    Antonio

    You should be able to just select the layer the image is on and either make it invisible or delete it entirely.

    I have a question though.
    Did you download from the official Gimp.org website?
    If you did not, then you may not get the correct files or version that you need.
    Always download GIMP from the official website.
    I am not sure what you are talking about with gimp E-Book - templates.
    Could you lease post a screenshot?

    Yes, I downloaded from gimp.org.

    I have a few e-cover templates that a got from a product seller.

    I can't find an upload button here for images so that I can show you the screenshot.

    I got a gimp tutorial that shows an image removing button, but my gimp doesn't have that.

    When I downloaded gimp I had issues with opening files: EXE and PART files.

    Through some online programs I got to open some of them, but there still some files that could not be open.

    Probably that's why I don't have some Gimp features.

    I have Windows XP with a 512 K capacity.

    I don't have photoshop.

    I am trying to use Gimp with 3d-pack.com free version e-cover creator.

    Thank you.

    Have to learn how to access them faster.

    Thank you.

    If you select "Quick Reply" and then select "Full Editor" you will see an Upload Attachment button. Click that and browse to the image you want to attach to the post.

    8) In case other people are having the same problems I had with deleting an image, here is what is done:

    1. Go to GIMP
    2. In the File link click the "Open with layers..." option
    3. Look for the file with the image you want to work with.
    4. Select that file
    5. Click OPEN
    6. When the image has fully uploaded look for the layers display
    7. To find the Layers display go to the top Menu
    8. Click the Windows link
    9. Choose or hover over the Docktable Dialogs
    10. A Drop down list will appear
    11. Click the Layers link
    12. In the Layers Display look for the Layer that corresponds to the image that you want to delete.
    13. Click that Layer
    14. You will see an Eye
    15. If you click the Eye the image will become invisible.
    16. Or, you can go to the "Trash can" image at the bottom of Layer Display.
    17. With the Layer selected and clicking the Trash can the image will be deleted.

    ;) Doing the process above made me learn the process.

    Odd that you would have to open that dialog (Layers), as most folks keep that one open after install. By default the Layers Dialog is tabbed with the Channels and Paths dialogs to the right.Toolbox and Tool Options are by default placed on the left side.
