When I have my xcf file open, how can I import an image into it?

File > Open as layers

Thanks.

File > Open as layers and then what? Copy and paste?

RE: How to add an image
The image should be imported and available as a new layer.

Just "File/Open as layers"... This adds the image as a new layer to the current image.

I created an image in GIMP. I'd like to add another image to this first image. I opened the first image by "File/Open as layers", as instructed, now how do I add the second image to the first image? By importing? pasting?
I'm obviously not clear on this. More clarity would be greatly appreciated.

RE: How to add an image
Exactly the same way, by "File/Open as layers"

Thanks. Ok I've got it. I wasn't getting that you simply select the 2nd image after selecting File/Open as layers, I thought it needed to be imported or pasted in. Thanks for your patience.

I looked around but I can't seem to figure out how to now move that 2nd image around.
Can you help me with that?
Thanks again
