copy and paste


Recommended Posts

I am working with Paint-Net 3.5.8 and have a problem:

I want to open two pictures and like to copy one detail of picture 1 into picture 2.

Sounds easy but isn't, probably because layers in involved ?

Anyway, will somebody be so kind as show me step by step how to work it out ?

select whatever it is you want to copy with whatever selection tool you prefer, hit Ctrl-c, then go to the pic you want to paste to, open a new layer, hit Ctrl-v, it will paste with the move selected pixel tool activated, grab and move to where you want it, or use the nubs/handles to manipulate it, save to your choice of file type(flattening may be needed, but that will be taken care of in the save dialog

you just need to paste the object in as a new layer Ctrl+Shift+V instead of the standard paste

and when its in place, can use Layer tools to change some of the object properties or press Ctrl+M to flatten it

I am really lost. I successfully copied and pasted a logo into my new drawing. But it placed it top left. I need it top right. I am unable to move it from where the software chose to place it to where I need it to be. Err... what's up with this?

Hey Weby - welcome to the forum :)

 

If you used Ctrl + Shift + V to paste the image, it went into a brand new layer. Check that this new layer has the highlight in the Layers window.

 

If the layer is highlighted, press the M key once to select the Move tool :MoveTool: (or activate it in the Tools window).

 

Now you should be able to click and drag the image to a new location.

 

This thread is some years old, so I'm going to lock it. If you have further problems, please start a new thread. Good luck!
