help with gif


so I'm trying to make a banner for my site. But I'm having trouble with the layers.
Obviously I'm using the gimp

this is it: http://uscexchange.net/banner.gif

basically, I want to get rid of those "red" screens. But when creating it, I had to use them or else it would use the old background, which I didn't want.

Anyone know how to solve this problem? Aside from creating each of the layers in a jpg and pasting them?

Thanks

While almost every question does get an answer, we cannot guarantee a response. If your thread does not receive any responses, it will automatically be bumped twice.

So don't bump your posts after a few hours, wait at least 48 if you get no responses as we auto bump them for you twice, around the 16 and 32 hour marks..

I just had a look at it. You can merge the red frames and the text that comes after them so they appear at the same time.

Use the layers dialog to make the red frame and the frame of text which is shown after it visible (make sure all other layers are not visible), right click on the red layer in the layers dialog and select merge visible layers.
