    Trying to re-range tile sets on gimp2. The ones I got have a green background to them, when I delete that, it goes to white. Is there way to get that transparent background on that picture of tile set?

    When opening a new project, under "advanced setting" you can choose "Fill: Foreground color, background color, transparency" and choose transparency.

    in an existing project, you can change a particular color to "alpha" which means alpha channel (transparency.)but that gets tricky.

    Instead, go to layers - add alpha channel

    and then select all of the green color and then edit>cut the green out and instead of white being left behind, it will be transparency.

    (On new projects Levi is right, just select transparency from the start.)
