3.7. Paste


This command can be accessed from an image menubar as Edit/ Paste....

The Paste command puts whatever is in The GIMP Clipboard from the last Copy or Cut command into the current image. The pasted section will be placed as a Floating Selection and is shown as a separate layer in the Layers Dialog .

If there is an existing selection on the canvas, it will be used to align the pasted data. Any data pasted when a selection already exists will be pasted using the selection as a center point. If the selection is to be used as a clipping region for the pasted data, this can be achieved by using the Paste Into command.

[Note] Note

You can only have one floating selection at any one time and cannot work on a layer while there is a floating selection.


The Ctrl+V will call the Undo function
