Thanks!! :tyspin

hi.

try to paste as... new layer.
Then in the toolbox, choose the movement tool.
Now you can move your layer as you wish.
Save as xcf-format, otherwise the layers will be gone.

When you create a new document, open where it says template and choose A4, then when you are cutting out your images, you will have some idea of their size. You can open a new transparent layer to work on then delete the background layer and save your file as either PNG or XCF to preserve the transparency if you wish.
