resizing canvas question

carla
I'm getting so frustrated with the lack of intuitive functioning of this program I'm  just about ready to go back and pay for photoshop. Arghhh....
I have made a change in an image rotating part of it so that it now extends above the edge of the canvas. Resizing the canvas to layers does  nothing. I had similar problems extending the canvas when I added an image from another file but nothing worked to fix that problem either. It was all so easy in photoshop- why is this so difficult????

This is difficult because it's not Ps, and I get the impression you haven't
had a chance to read through he manual yet.

Perhaps you could upload an .xcf file that you're having problems with for
us to see? https://filebin.net the come back here and give us the link.

How _exactly_ did you try to resize the canvas? What menu item did you
choose to do this?

Probably using the wrong tool or do not understand how the tool works or
expecting click-n-wish to work

Without greater details of the image you are using, all a bit of a guess but
this is a demo of

1. Image menu -> Fit Canvas To Layers

2. Image menu -> Resize Canvas

Either probably do the job, only 1 minute 30 seconds so no great epic.
