[Gimp-user] New Layer from Cut

Thank you very much, Rich!

Beware of some of these old tutorials, they tend to be very specific,
with images tailored to the desired result. Sometimes difficult to
reproduce with your own work.

However, You have made your selection and cut it. Edit -> Cut (or

The options

Edit -> Paste as -> New Layer looks like this

and gives this http://i.imgur.com/D2RMGnz.jpg with the pasted layer at
0,0 (top left corner) of the canvas


Edit -> Paste (or ctrl-v) which gives a Floating Selection (Pasted
Layer) followed by Layer -> To New Layer

like this http://i.imgur.com/6n0Gy9f.jpg

Which gives http://i.imgur.com/LJWmneL.jpg a new layer. The
difference, it is located in the same position as the original

That is all standard Gimp. 

There is a python plugin 'layer-via-copy-cut' see:

but I advise getting to know the regular Gimp functions before using
'extra' plugins.
