Help! image paste problem
Hi. I am having problems copying/pasting an image into Gimp. Instead of the image itself being pasted, it pastes the mac symbol for Jpeg (the photo of the little Asian boy by the sea with the camera lens on top). The same happens pasting an EPS file. I don't understand as I have managed to paste an image before. I have tried pasting into selection/pasting as new image/pasting as new layer. All the same. Neither will Gimp let me drag an image into it from finder or the desktop. I've tried opening a new file from scratch too. Same problem. Any suggestions greatly appreciated.
I'm using a macbook pro. OX 10.6.8

RE: Help! image paste problem
Hi - ok I've found that I can "Open an image as a layer" which will give me the real image - now I just need to resize it - I've tried the scale button but it doesn't do anything - the dialogue box opens and I can input numbers into width/height but then when I press 'scale' nothing happens. Any ideas? Thanks
