Question How to duplicate an image ?
I`m trying to do something that should be quite simple but I can`t figure it out. I`m using GIMP2. I have an image I`m working with. All I want to do is to put a copy of that same image in the same box. So I will have the same two images together side by side or top and bottom. Any advice you can give me would be appreciated.

  • Image/Canvas size: "unchain" height and width, and set the required dimension (change the units to percent and use 200%).
  • Layer/Duplicate layer. You can look at the layer stack in the Layers dialog (Ctrl-L)
  • Optional but helpful: View/Snap to canvas edges
  • Use the Move tool (Move) and drag the top layer to the empty part of the canvas. With the step above it will naturally adjust to the sides.

Keep the two layers separate unless you have very compelling reasons to merge them (the only reason that comes to mind is a general color adjustment, but it should have been done on the initial layer). Save image as XCF and export to JPG/PNG when done (but keep the XCF...)
