When I save an XCF file can I still bring it back up and make changes? Tried googling but that just flooded me with endless info and not a real grasp on anything I could understand.

When you save a .xcf, all the layers and paths you have made are kept. This is good if you have done a project that you might use again. Also you can play with the layers and alter the images any way you wish. You just go to File/Open. Choose your directory for saved files and press Open.

One thing that you want to keep in mind is that if you merge a layer, and you close the work or Gimp, you won't be able to get that layer back. I don't know If I explained clearly, any layer you merge or any effect you put on a layer you cannot roll it back when you close Gimp. Even if you save your work.

Here another good tip for new artist. It was first posted in Gimp Talk a few years back for our late friend and beloved Oregonian. It was recreated in a video and posted in You Tube by our good friend GimpTrick.
