3.5. Copy

This command can be accessed from an image menubar as Edit->Copy, or by using the keyboard shortcut Ctrl-C.

The Copy command allows the user to make a copy of the current selection, which is then stored in The GIMP Clipboard . The information can be recalled using the using the Paste, Paste Into, and Paste As New commands. If no selection has been made, the entire current layer will be copied. "Copy" will only work on the current active layer. Any layers above or below the active one are ignored.
