|E||Alt+R, E||Raster -> Eraser|
The Eraser command erases a square region of pixels from the image, replacing them with the current background color. Click and drag the eraser to remove larger areas.
If a selected region is active, only pixels inside the selection can be erased.
You may adjust the size of the eraser using the square bracket keys '[' and ']'.
