Hi all. Basically I know how to cut and past one image from one layer onto a background layer, but what I need to know is how you properly crop an image in order to use it as a render. As an example, lets say I have a picture saved of a spacercraft I wish to put on a background of my own design. I cut then paste the image but the excess outer space graphic is still visible around the spacecraft. How can I get rid of the excess outer space graphic so that the spacecraft sits nicely on the background I have made??. Sorry if this seems like a pretty noobish quetsion but although GIMP is an amazing program, im still trying to figure everything out. Any help would be great, thankyou.
