Highlight stray non-background pixels

I am editing an image in GIMP that has a few nearly-transparent (resp. very light) pixels scattered through an otherwise transparent (resp. pure white) background.

Is there a command that will quickly highlight or otherwise indicate pixels that are not the background color (i.e. white or transparent, depending on whether there’s an alpha channel), so that I can clear them?

(I could just set the similar-color threshold to 0 and flood-fill, but that takes many clicks, and I have to either duplicate the layer first or remember where all the stray pixels are.)


You can use the Select By color tool with the Threshold set to 0:

Click where you know there is only white/transparency, and all of that color will be selected.
