Full image appearing after cut and paste, save-as
Hello all,

I'm not a raw beginner but I don't claim to be professional either. I have an issue that I have not been able to sort out so am looking for some help. If I take an image, and using the path tool, draw an area, then do a selection from path, cut/copy and paste as 'new image' then save the new image as a .bmp, .jpg etc, I am getting the whole original image instead of the cut an pasted portion. The full image does not show up as long as the drawing remains in .xcf (the background is a grey checkerboard). When saved as .jpg or .bmp the checkerboard is replaced by the original source image that it was cut from. This is Gimp 2.6.11 under Linux.

I have checked for extra layers, tried removing alpha channels, doing a 'copy visible' and re-pasting, merging of all layers all to no avail. It doesn't always happen either so there must be something, some setting or clicky box somewhere.

I cut a piece out of a photo and the whole photo appears...
I need to import the final image into a program that accepts only .jpg,.bmp and .tga files. Surely there is a way to remove the cut area entirely into a new image without the legacy data?
