In layer L1, go to step 2 throw step 4 and create layer L2 6. Make an elliptical selection I have also the problem with other kinds of selection. Lets look at a pixel that is selected 50%. The Paste as option provides four more options, which allows the user to paste the image in various styles. Then select the portion which you want to cut or copy.
To move their contents, as with rectangular and elliptical selections, you have to hold down Ctrl+ Alt keys or Shift+ Alt and click-and-drag. I then link the layers together and select the whole image. I found that I'm supposed to turn it into a new layer to be able to move it so I do so. So if you cut out an ellipse and place it in a second layer on the very same place you will get a slightly transparent border around the ellipse. But as long as this is only a one-time transfer i.
You've got lots of answers, so there are lots of ways to do this. Also any image you copy becomes a usable brush immediately from the clip-board. I have made minor cosmetic changes to those scripts essentially limited to renaming them and moving them into a sub-menu under Script-Fu. The original layers will be unlinked as a result. As suggested in the docs, I click to anchor the floating selection. However, if the Active Layer is set to, say, Multiply, then the normally blended combination of the Floating Layer and the Active Layer will be blended with the rest of the image using Multiply, since the floating layer is blended into the active layer before it's blended with the rest of the image. The bottom layer will remain unaffected.
Put the floating selection into a new layer L1 5. What I want to do is paste a picture to a new gimp file. The same can happen when you place two partially transparent pixels on top of each other in two layers: 50% opacity in the first and 50% opacity in the second layer does not sum up to 100% opacity, it is around 75% opacity the math is basically the same. I think the indications above won't do any good since they move the selection mask and not the pasted layer. This would be a good answer if the question was how to define shortcuts in general. You, of course, can use it however you like.
These scripts allow you to cut or copy a selection from multiple layers, manipulate the resulting multi-layer selection, and then paste the data from each layer back down into its original layer. Hitting Ctrl-V before move won't work, of course. Make a selection, Ctrl-C, move the selection to desired location, Ctrl-V, anchor floating selection. Is there a workaround for this? Then without any warning it stopped working. If the arrow keys do not cause the selection to move, try hovering the mouse cursor over the selection first. So my suggestion is to revert to using the standard paste functionality, and simply assign a convenient shortcut to the layers-new command something like Ctrl-B is pretty good, so you can quickly hit Ctrl-V and Ctrl-B in succession. Click-and dragging them doesn't move them.
Instead, these new floating layers will be linked together and can be manipulated jointly as though they were one layer using various transformation tools such as the move tool, the rotation tool, and the scaling tool. Do you need to keep the layers separate? The pasted image can be moved. Any ideas what stupid thing I might have done to cause this? If you click-and-drag the selection without handles, you create a new selection! On the right you should be presented with a list of one or more places in which Gimp will look for Script-Fu scripts. What's more, when I do copy and paste a whole folder I see 'floating selection', which I am unclear about. You may choose to add an additional folder here if, for instance, the system you are using restricts your account from copying items into the folder s in which Gimp already looks for scripts.
In this case, delete this layer and use this from another superuser answer:. I don't know if that will actually help; it depends on what you are doing. Instead, drag the layer or layer group from the layers dialog of the source image to an image window of the target image. At this point I unlink all of the layers. If you experience any problems with scaling, moving, rotating, etc.
This is a standard and often used shortcut that you'll find in plenty of tutorials, and if you follow that answer and change the shortcut, plenty of tutorials or answers to questions won't work for you. The problem I have described still happens with no antialiasing selected. Too bad it's so hard to find anything like that, although I use it as my primary Graphical Design program for eg. Don't know if that's faster, but its an easy process for me since I have multiple monitors on which to do this. But you can also more simply drag the thumbnail of the layer in the Layers list of the source image to the canvas of the target image in single-window mode, you may have to drag to the tab of the target image. This will turn the Floating Layer into a Real Layer that you can then manipulate normally.
With Gimp for Windows - version 1. While the Floating Layer is floating in limbo, you can't work on anything else. In theory, the base image should be split into the different layers. This will add all of the layers from the original 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. This is because the floating layer is rendered as though it is part of the active layer, even though you can still manipulate it separately.
