New Layer from Cut

chrisj
I'm learning GIMP via a tutorial on lynda.com & the video includes an example of
creating a new layer via a selected shape using New Layer from Cut. I'm running
GIMP 2.8.18 & there's no such menu option. I assume it's in a previous version
of GIMP & has been turned into something else. Does anyone know the command I
need to do this?

Thanks.

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 ctrl-x)

The options

Edit -> Paste as -> New Layer looks like this http://i.imgur.com/l2RS0QW.jpg

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

or

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 selection.

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.
