Re: [Gimp-user] (seemingly an odd question) getting this image into my email signature?

So I have an odd issue.  What I am trying to do is to add the logo of the gym that turned my life around to 
my Gmail signature, and make the logo a link to their site.  I'm fairly experienced with digital graphic 
art concepts, I've been a GIMP'er for years, yet this one has me stumped.  So if you go to you'll see their logo in between "Home" and "Weekly schedule."  It's a 
black image with white lettering and a white stick figure.  This one, although this displays as entirely 
white:  Yet when 
I right-click on it and choose Copy image, then go to my Gmail settings and paste it into my signature, 
nothing shows up.  "Uh?"  So I opened GIMP and chose to Paste from clipboard.  "Oh, now it shows up!"  So I 
chose Select all, hit copy, and tried again to paste it into my Gmail signature.  Yet again, nothing.  So 
on a whim, I inverted the colors, copied, and tri
  to paste again.  Still nothing.

The logo is a transparent PNG with the image content in white.  If
you save the PNG, open it in the GIMP and add a new black layer,
move the black layer to the bottom, and save the image, you should
have one that works.
