Your post is titled "copy and paste", but you talk about "CUT and paste". The checker board is how the program represents a transparent area, and the checkerboard will not show up in any saved images. If you are "cutting" and pasting, then you have moved your image from one place to another, leaving a transparent area in your source image, which looks like a checker board. If you don't want to "move" the image, then be sure to "COPY" and paste, which will leave your original image intact.

Total hack.

i cut it this time and it still has checkers. im using the eraser on the cut image and the board shows up in the erased area. i want to see the image im pasting to underneath the erased part.

Ah, you need to be using layers. Play around with layers and you'll figure it out.

EDIT: The image you are pasting to will be your "bottom" layer. The image you are cutting will be your top layer. When you erase a spot on the top layer, you will see the image on the bottom layer, instead of the checker board. Be sure the top layer is highlighted in the layer list when you do your erase.

Total hack.

Hit F1 from within the program and look for "Layers." This should help you with any problems you may have.

 

The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.
