Export PNG image without alpha channel in GIMP


How do I export a PNG image without alpha channel in GIMP?

I have checked a lot, but I can’t find this. I found an option to export PNG images without alpha channel in Inkscape, but I am not familiar with that program.

Also, is there any way to check whether an image has an alpha channel in GIMP?

In GIMP, alpha channels exist per layer. If you go to the layers dialogue (Ctrl+L), right-click on your layer, there is an item Remove Alpha Channel, which does what you want. If it is greyed out, your layer does not have an alpha channel.
