identify layers

Here's some simple questions, I hope. After I read in my jpg image from my camera, can GIMP tell me what the underlying layers from my camera represent? RGB, CMY, etc?
Does GIMP actually read three separate layers or when it decomposes, does it create three layers from one color image?

Also does anyone know how I can find out the band width of the RGB layers from my camera, if in fact, it's reading RGB?

Thanks in advance,


If you read the Jpeg from your camera, then for Gimp that's one "layer". The colors are contained in channels (RGB, once the JPEG is decoded).

"band width of the RGB layers from my camera," just blew my semantic circuits. If you want to see statistics about the picture, see Windows/Dockable dialogs/Histogram.
