Moving Selections question

Recommended Posts

Is there any way to move a selection without replacing other contents of that layer?

[Example] I try to move the selection to the left, but it covers the cheek to the left:


Here's the same thing in MS Paint, but with the desired result:


There is no white in the current layer. Only the black lines.

I do know that it's possible by making a new layer, but I'd rather keep my lineart to one.

Wouldn't it be much easier to cut the face, paste it in a new layer and then merge the layer down? Then you'd have your selection moved and have just one layer. I mean, it only takes two more seconds :wink:

Besides the only way to counteract the overlapping alpha values is by making a precise cutout.

But that's why I recommend doing the first step :wink:
