i need help on the alpha part i cant find the tool
Right click on the layer, go down the list of things and click "Alpha To Selection"
ok i found it and i been playin with it but what if your doin it to a picture that has white in it? what do you do to make it leave the white alone in the actual picture
Are you saying you want to take another color out, or that you don't want all of the white out, just some of it?
Try using the magic wand in the toolbox, select the color on the layer you're working on, you can adjust the threshold on the bottom part of the toolbox.
Read the first post in this thread.
say like i got a car i painted and rendered and i want to add a back ground to it but the letters are white or the base has white in it

I'm just wondering but is Gimp almost like Photoshop?
yes. but free.
I heard Paint Shop Pro is better than Gimp, but its not free.
Paint shop pro is better then gimp and paint.net. It costs about $100. If you get it with a coupon you could probably get it for 60 bucks. Its what I paid. And 20 more for the upgrade to the newest version that just came out.
Photoshop is $1000 unless you get it through an educational discount as a student which you need a university id and some other things for.
GIMP and PSP are free but they do not have all the polished goodies of PSP or PS.
Its up to you as to what you want to use. I use PSP Photo X2 Ultimate and PS CS3. I love both, i have found the pen tool easier to master in PSP. But again its about which one you learn first i suppose.
It's extremely similar, although GIMP is free and Photoshop has many more features. For something as simple as making a car, you can use GIMP until you can afford Photoshop, like me.
And you get can layer effects for GIMP like PS, my tut.

Is there a way to select multiple layers so you can resize them on the same scale?
