Post any helpful info about GIMP here.
Here's a simple and helpful tutorial on how to set up a grid on GIMP to aid you with texture-pack work.
Click to enlarge any image from the given tasks ahead.
Open your image (terrain.png, items.png etc.)
Go to View/Show Grid and make sure it is ticked.
Go to Image/Configure Grid and make sure it is ticked.
Set the grid size to 64x64 (blocksize) and the offset to 0x0 (starts at 0,0).
You can zoom in to check if it is working for you, it should always be 64x64.
Step. 6 (optional)
You can also go into the View drop-down and select 'Snap to Grid' which helps you select blocks and can work independently w/o the grid being visible.
Step. 7 (optional)
You should now be able to select your block very easily!
