After copying and pasting I cannot deselect an area
Hi All,
Sorry, really inexperienced noob here. I have a pic where there's a horrible sign post in the foreground which I didn't spot when i took the pic.
I want to get rid of it, so i'm copying various parts of the background, and pasting them over the signpost. unfortunately, after pasting a section, i can't seem to deselect the newly pasted section. I've had a google and many forums are telling me to go Select -> None, but this is greyed out. I can save the picture, close it, and reopen in GIMP, but i dont want to do this everytime I paste.

I'm using 2.6.8 by the looks of it, if that's any help.

Thanks in advance,

Tom

p.s. i'm really liking GIMP Smile

Cheers mate, you are a star. I used the anchor layer method and it worked a treat. I have a lot to learn!

Thanks again,

Tom
