I'm trying to change the perspective of a layer in GIMP, but it's very difficult to see what I'm doing while there's this enormous grid over the selection. Is there any way I can disable this?

Here's an example

  • \$\begingroup\$ Did you try to zoom in ? The grid won't disturb that much anymore. \$\endgroup\$

In the tool options for the perspective tool, under "Guides", you can select "No guides". There are other options, as well, for a sparser grid, etc.
