When your selection is complete, you'll be able to paste your selection into a new image, adjusting the position and scale where needed. Make sure the layer option in the move tool is selected in the toolbox. Your best bet is to try it and see if it works. Then if you copy and paste or cut and paste, select the move tool four arrows just below the scissors. Such opinions may not be accurate and they are to be used at your own risk. You have to give the Floating Layer a Real Layer to live on first.
While making the points, the pointer is an arrowhead, with the scissor icon below it and a cross next to arrowhead. As suggested in the docs, I click to anchor the floating selection. The Gimp move tool will move the layer with the first solid layer it comes across. This will turn the Floating Layer into a Real Layer that you can then manipulate normally. I am attempting to open the background image in this template with gimp, then paste over top of the Original image with a new image.
Will have to wait for the patch in master to see how intrusive the actual code is, and then decide on backporting. Unfortunately I don't think this is possible. How do you paste into the same layer? Can anybody, please, enlighten me? Print Screen typically copies the screen to the clipboard, and Alt+ Print Screen copies only the active window. While the Floating Layer is floating in limbo, you can't work on anything else. This will allow you to turn your area into a selection when you click in the middle and then you can cut and paste it where ever.
I'm not sure why they didn't make the move tool behave like that too. May 13, 2013 I want to move a layer or a selection in a straight line. The original image is in shades of brown while the new image is in many different colors. I'd pretty much have to say you suck. Isn't there a way to paste the selection into the second image at exactly the same position where it was in the first image? There's a tricky part of my image and trying to move points often adds another point by mistake, and then I end up with a gazillion points, and trying to move them around to the right places is nightmarish.
I've tried opening a new file from scratch too. This will keep them intact, including any possible layer parasites this is important for text layers, for example. Before you do this though, you might want to go into the Scissors tool options and check Feather Edges to create a smooth selection: Now, click on the first point you made. Is there no delete mode for the Scissors tool? I was editing one and was about to save it but then realized it was on the wrong background. The drawing is made mainly of meshes.
May 18, 2013 I have some textures, and i am trying to pack them into texture atlas. Resize the canvas to twice the width of the original image, leaving the original image at left. I have multiple images, each with a unique background layer. I do want to keep it as a layer group. I've come as far as clicking on my selection and nothing happens. Single window mode was simply never really finished, we'll try to get it right in 2.
Now I have a relatively large layer group, which I would like to copy to the other 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. Neither will Gimp let me drag an image into it from finder or the desktop. Apr 21, 2013 I have a 3D file not of my creation that gives me some problems when I try to copy it it is a 3D building. Instead of the image itself being pasted, it pastes the mac symbol for Jpeg the photo of the little Asian boy by the sea with the camera lens on top. Click and drag on any of the lines you have created to add curve to the line.
Then without any warning it stopped working. For me, if I don't click in just the right place, it adds another point rather than changing it to a selection. Essentially what I did is copy an image from another program FitsViewer, if that's relevant. This problem happens with both autocad 2012 and 2013 and it doesn't happen with other 3D files I have. Once you selected whatever part of the picture you want to move, press ctrl-x and then ctrl-v. Does this test give you a different result on windows? All I want to do is select four or five layers from this unsaved image with Background A, copy them and then open an image with Background B and paste them in so there will be minimal issues with alignments and such. In this option, the pasted image can be moved to view the existing image.
After 6 tries, the same original copy was the only one in there. May 23, 2012 Having a problem copy selection with base point and trying to past it in another drawing. Thanks for the helpful and simple to understand tutorial. I can open a picture, do a blur and export. When I try, it just says there is no image data on the clipboard for me to paste. This creates a floating selection, duly noted in the list of layers. Now you can use the move tool to move the new layer around.
However, when I make a selection from that file and copy and paste it into a different Ps file, it does not show the adjustments. A slider button adjusts the values of opacity. Next, click on the edge of your shape. Or if you do need them separate, duplicate the group, then merge the new group, and copy-paste from there? I suppose the key is to get the handles to appear, but I have not been able to discover the secret combination of keys to make that happen. I've already consulted the manuals, but they didn't help.
