3.7. Copy and Paste

how to copy and paste using gimp

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. In this option, the pasted image can be moved to view the existing image. 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. Don't know if that's faster, but its an easy process for me since I have multiple monitors on which to do this. Simply click inside the bounded image to make it a selection.

How can I copy multiple layers from one file to another • GIMP Chat

how to copy and paste using gimp

However, Gimp doesn't seem to have such a feature built-in where you can select a layer group, draw a rectangle selection, and copy-paste this area so that each layer would get copy-pasted on their own. Activated channels appear highlighted generally in blue in the Channels dialog sometimes in grey. You have resized the image, but not the layer. When your selection is complete, you'll be able to paste your selection into a new image, adjusting the position and scale where needed. Any image in Gimp has at least one layer.

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

how to copy and paste using gimp

Returns automatically to original layer. To save the image with a transparent background you need to save it in a format that can handle not having a background. Disabling the alpa channel has severe consequences. For now, I have to manually go through all the layers and do the copy-pasting individually, which starts to become rather cumbersome. I know this went a little off subject but you have so many more options with selections i could go on and on.

You've got lots of answers, so there are lots of ways to do this. So if you want to keep it as a layer group here's the quick trick for you! Click on a point with your mouse and drag it to move it to a new location. Is it possible to somehow copy the entire folder as it is with multiple layers and all and paste it into my new file? In fact that is both simple and quick. If you need me to, I can make a quick tutorial, but I bet you can find it in the menu. Essentially what I did is copy an image from another program FitsViewer, if that's relevant. This automatically pastes the image in a new window and you can view it.

Quick copy

how to copy and paste using gimp

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? I've already consulted the manuals, but they didn't help. My understanding of this program is that this saves it to the clipboard in bitmap format. Fundaments have a little triangle to the left of the thumbnail which permit expanding or collapsing the group. 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. How do you paste into the same layer? If the layer on which it is pasted is transparent, the pasted pixel will be transparent.

See my article on for more information on open resources. Or if you do need them separate, duplicate the group, then merge the new group, and copy-paste from there? Such opinions may not be accurate and they are to be used at your own risk. 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.

In the Channels tab, the Alpha Channel must activated. I stumbled upon which seems to be for Gimp 2.

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. Feel free to reach out and say 'hello'. Anchors are the dots that appear when you click the mouse on your image with the selected path tool. Inactive channels appear in white. Do the same in Gimp, and I get an empty transparent selection, with no image. I have two image tabs open and I want to copy one layer from the first image to the second image keeping dimensions and size.

So basically, I need to take each folder I have 50+ which have 5 or more layers in each and create a specific. I don't know if that will actually help; it depends on what you are doing. Hi Chris, thanks for your comment. Open your picture, you can use whatever format your picture is in e. .

Net cannot verify the validity of the statements made on this site. To get to this stage you would have previously been using the path tool. Watercolor is a painting technique that uses water-based paints. Is there a way to do the multi-layer copypasting, or is there a newer script for this? The Gimp move tool will move the layer with the first solid layer it comes across. We want to superimpose a photo of Zallascht Sadat Miss Afghanistan in 2008 on Lake Band-e Amir. Now you need to invert and cut out image. 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.

Copying selected pixels/image and paste in the same layer???

how to copy and paste using gimp

Move the image to fit as you want. 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. But you need also to eliminate aliasing. If you click on a channel in the list, you toggle activation of the corresponding channel. Click the color swatch to open a dialogue box with options to adjust this color. Using the mouse click a line around your image.
