Transparency fun with the GIMP
I've done it before with the GIMP, but it's been so long I can't remember...
I haven't managed to do it with the fill tool, but I get the same effect by doing the following:
Select a contiguous region by color.
Pick the eraser tool, with an appropriately large size.
Run the eraser over the image. Only the portion selected by step 1 will actually be erased, leaving a transparent background there.
I'm sure there must be a way to do it with fill, which would be maybe one step shorter and a bit quicker, but like you, I haven't managed to figure it out.Stand up and be counted as a Linux user!
Ah...I suppose that would work.

Bucket Fill>Tool Options
Check "fill transparent areas" .
Make a new transparent layer.
Select the area of the image you want gone and hit Ctrl-K.
Select all, cut and paste it in the transparent layer.Running Linux Since 2001®
