    I'm making a custom boot logo using GIMP. Does anyone know how to delete one of the pixels so I can use it? Don't suggest PAINT.net. I HAVE to use GIMP.

    Also, it has to be 320x480, and 32-bit png, right?

    When you go to make a new file, use the advanced option.... Where it says fill with, choose transparancy. Make your image. Delete a pixel using the eraser tool if you don't have any other transparent pixels.

    If you are opening/editing an existing file, go Layer>transparency>add alpha channel. Then delete a pixel if needed.

    I have never payed attention to the bit depth, but all of my files that have worked were at 32....

    No, but you can scale the size of the eraser somehow.... I'm stepping out for a bit. Google: gimp tutorials and you'll find a wealth of knowledge.
