[Gimp-user] Question Regarding Transparent Layers

Unless you are standing behind the user, never certain what is going on...

she clicks out of the logo (clicks somewhere on the jewelry image in
order to remove the selection tool from around the logo) the formerly
transparent background appears.

Any ideas?

However, that bit is not correct. Which tool is active? Gimp does not have a
neutral tool, there is always one in use, although some such as the measure tool
are harmless.

Assuming a straight copy - paste, either via  menu or ctrl-c, ctrl-v, there is a
Floating Selection, to remove the 'crawling ants' anchor that. Layer -> Anchor
Layer, ctrl-h, or the layer dock. see: attachment. While it is still 'floating'
it can be moved with the move tool.

A better way is copy, then paste-as-a-new-layer, Edit -> Paste-as -> New Layer.
Initially top left corner of the canvas, use the move tool any-time to move into
position. see: attachment Make sure you click on a solid part of layer or enable
move active layer.
