Intelligent scissors snip?!
Hi. My first day with Gimp and trying to cut a puppy from one picture and paste it into the foreground of another. A fairly ordinary procedure I'm sure.

I found 'intelligent scissors' the best selection tool but when I copy or cut the selection and paste it into another image, a blank image for testing, it is just the shape of the puppy rather than the whole puppy image.

What am I missing here? Thanks.

What I was missing :

- You have to finally click on the first bubble you put down. The mouse cursor then acquires an infinity sign. Click within the selected area and copy.
I I then pasted into a new image and copied from that to paste into a new layer of my base image.
