Yeah, I agree. I guess that making a simple sig or kit is easy with GIMP, although to make a good kit you need Photoshop.I just gave GIMP a quick go for this purpose to see. It works ok, but changing the colours is a tad of a *****. Ok if you don't have PS I suppose, but not ideal.
Hide them all? I used to open the .png files with GIMP so I don't know. I don't have GIMP anymore, I use Photoshop CS2, it's brilliant. I would seriously recommend it to GIMP users.How did you manage to keep all the layers from appearing :S?
