[Solved] How do I copy and paste in gimp?

how to copy and paste using gimp

So, how to cut out an image using. I would appreciate it if someone could either talk me though what I'm doing wrong, or else confirm if it is a bug so that I can stop wasting my time and find a different program. I've read the manual at this point: 5. If you disable the alpha channels, all pixels from now on added to the image will not have alpha component, and so a pasted pixel will have the transparency of the layer on which it is pasted. You can now, if you need to, go back and pull the line around your image in and out to match closer to your ideal cutting line. Fundaments have a little triangle to the left of the thumbnail which permit expanding or collapsing the group. When your selection is complete, you'll be able to paste your selection into a new image, adjusting the position and scale where needed.

[HELP] Copy

how to copy and paste using gimp

I stumbled upon which seems to be for Gimp 2. Simply click inside the bounded image to make it a selection. I know this went a little off subject but you have so many more options with selections i could go on and on. You can in the same window of layers change the opacity of the floating image. Just click it and the image gets pasted. To get to this stage you would have previously been using the path tool. Click the color swatch to open a dialogue box with options to adjust this color.

Example: I have this 640px by 400px first image with two layers - the background and a brush and I want to copy the brush layer to this other image of 1600px by 1200px. I thought I saw in another paid program the ability to move multiple objects around in a single layer - is that not possible with the gimp? To save the image with a transparent background you need to save it in a format that can handle not having a background. You now have the selected object in a transparent background. You have resized the image, but not the layer. I understand that this could just as well have been posted on the Inkscape mailing list if there is any but I'm only a subscriber to this one, so here goes nothing. Click and drag on any of the lines you have created to add curve to the line.

How to paste pictures straight into a layer mask on Gimp

Activated channels appear highlighted generally in blue in the Channels dialog sometimes in grey. How do you paste into the same layer? Essentially what I did is copy an image from another program FitsViewer, if that's relevant. Disabling the alpa channel has severe consequences. Seems like a basic function to me that is a huge time saver is lacking - having to mouse into each layer before you move an object is really frustrating and time consuming Ok, so I figured out how to paste a floating layer onto an existing layer - but it becomes a part of the layer and I can't move it around anymore. You've got lots of answers, so there are lots of ways to do this.

Click a tool icon to apply this color copy. You can use Layers:Masks:Show Mask get the mask to show up on your screen as if it were a layer and work on it full size. I'm trying to copy an image and paste it into the same layer, but can't seem to do that. In fact that is both simple and quick. I've tried merging the visible layers even though there is only one and what not, but nothing seems to change the outcome.

[HELP] Copy

how to copy and paste using gimp

For now, I have to manually go through all the layers and do the copy-pasting individually, which starts to become rather cumbersome. I'm used to photoshop and have just started using gimp, but for some reason I can't seem to get copy and paste to work. Net cannot verify the validity of the statements made on this site. This opens up new possibilities for displaying and sharing your favorite photos. If the layer on which it is pasted is white, the pasted pixel will be visible. We want to superimpose a photo of Zallascht Sadat Miss Afghanistan in 2008 on Lake Band-e Amir.

The Gimp move tool will move the layer with the first solid layer it comes across. You also have the option of saving any selection as a new brush, pattern, or layer. I thought I saw in another paid program the ability to move multiple objects around in a single layer - is that not possible with the gimp? Ok, so I figured out how to paste a floating layer onto an existing layer - but it becomes a part of the layer and I can't move it around anymore. I've never had this problem with other images before. I have the following image, which I open in gimp: I then use the rectangle selection tool to select a character and copy the selection. If the layer on which it is pasted is transparent, the pasted pixel will be transparent. Seems like a basic function to me that is a huge time saver is lacking - having to mouse into each layer before you move an object is really frustrating and time consuming When you copy some image or selection and paste into an image you get a Floating Selection Pasted Layer 1 see: screenshot A You then have a choice, Anchor the layer 2 which merges the pasted item down to the layer underneath it or Make a new layer 3 If you want to move the pasted item at a later stage make it a new layer.

The work is complete when the endpoint joined the starting point. Net is the opinions of its users. Unfortunately I don't think this is possible. Important step: you must connect the first and last anchor. I don't know if that will actually help; it depends on what you are doing.

Quick copy

A slider button adjusts the values of opacity. You can see only in the picture on the right the disappearance of the background. This explains the behaviour you observed. The Paths Tool allows you to delete points, add curves to your lines and adjust the position of your points to ensure your selection is as accurate as possible. If I paste it on a layer with a white background, it is visible, but I want a transaparent background. Returns automatically to original layer. Is it possible to somehow copy the entire folder as it is with multiple layers and all and paste it into my new file? What's more, when I do copy and paste a whole folder I see 'floating selection', which I am unclear about.
