I couldn't agree more with other comments regarding how it is so easy to
follow the step. The demonstration is easy to understand and follow. The
explanation is clear, detail, informative... I have a language barrier,
yet, I have no problem understanding the tutorial. Also, I do appreciate
the demeanor and the tenure of the person who do the tutorial, he is very
knowledgeable, yet, not by any mean arrogant or conceited. Thank you for
doing this tutorial.

Author Cedy B (19 days)
What I liked about this tutorial was the clarity and the time to explain.
Most tutorials especially for beginners assume that the student has a basic
knowledge and thus the student is lost almost immediately. I liked this
tutorial because it only assumed one thing and that was when almost at the
end, the 'Delete Key' was mentioned. I know this may seen picky but for a
total beginner like myself this did give me a problem. Now I know how to
delete by checking elsewhere my problem was solved.
I only add this comment because I used to teach the those with learning
difficulties and with them you don't assume anything with the first lesson.
I truly hope you don't mind me mentioning this.

Your GIMP tutorials are by far the best on YouTube . Every movement is
clearly and detailed explained . And the voice intonation is the right one
. Congratulations ! 

Author Robert Jennings (6 months)
All goes well until the image is whited out and the background is all
black. I go to select the color tool and click on it, then go to the black
background and click on it. I go to the image layer (not the copy) and
right click, I add alpha channel. I then go up to delete the black and
white layer. I now see the original image outlined and move the curser to
the background and click then press ashcan - the whole image becomes a
checkerboard? What am I doing wrong?
