    thats because you saved it as a Jepg. If you save it as jpreg it will not support the transparent bg and make it white instead. So my advicce, open the .xcf again (i hope you still have it) and re-save it as a .png !!!

    good call. i would add that you make sure there's an alpha channel when you re-open the image.

    click: layer>transparency>add alpha channel

    also, i would go and get the original if you don't have it. every time you save as a .jpg, you loose quality. so i'd suggest you start over.

    i thought it had to do with the page setup.....i was allowed to erase the letters but it wouldnt resize the image.

    if you are also trying to size the image to get rid of the area the text was in, you can do that by using the rectangular select tool to select the area around the objects. then click: image>crop to selection.
