Wow, a much more positive and supportive message. :) Thanks Brent!
I'll have to check that out next time I try out GIMP! :) No wait,
I'll go try now, it's worth it for this discussion... afk... WOW,
that's awesome. Somehow I never associated checkerboard with checks.
"Light Checks" is my new setting of choice! Thanks Brent!
