I can't seem to figure out a few things..
I pasted a picture onto a background, but the picture has white all around it (even though I only outlined the pic before copying), and I can't seem to get rid of it!
I also can't figure out how to get it on the background. It goes behind it, for some reason..
any help is much loved!

Is it a photo you are trying to paste? And does it originally have a white border? If it's a portion of a photo that has been cut and saved, if it's saved as a jpeg then it will save it with a white background. Images needs to be in png if you don't want any border or background. Re the layer going below the background, i don't use Gimp so just gona try to help with what i would do in my programme..I have on my tools bar a layer palette, in that i can see all the different layers, As you add elements and photos they each go on a different layer, you need to move them from that layer palette up or down. You may also be able to left click on the image itself and there might be something saying move up, down.

HTH.

Can you do screen shots of what's happening, it'll make it easier for me to figure out what's going on

I still do that! Trick is to save it as .xcf as you go along, that way if you close it by accident or it freezes you have your siggy from when you last saved it and you can still move things around.
