LAYER VIA
COPY / CUT

  • Version: 1.6
  • Release: 09.01.2014
  • Tested with: GIMP 2.8
  • Author: Dmitry Dubyaga
  • Location: <Image>/Layer/Layer via Copy, Layer via Cut

Copy and move the selected area to a new layer in the same position.
This function is similar to the functions with the same names in Photoshop, and more powerful. Unlike them, it can copy / cut content, not just from one layer, but also from the layer groups.
In Photoshop, this is not possible :)
