Moving content between existing two layers
Hi,

I am completely new to Gimp. I have a very simple image made of up two layers. (see attached)

I want to cut and move some of the content on one of the existing layers to the other existing and vice and versa.

I have been reading up and can see information about the Select Float technique but this is not working. I tried cut and paste as new layer and then merge down but this just seems to move the section I cut out and not the image content.

I would just like to understand.
1) How I should select the content I want to move. I have been using the paths tool and then selecting the path.
2) How I can permanently move the selected content from my first layer to my second layer including the content on the screen.

I am feeling very slow at the moment!

Any help or pointers to existing tutorials would be much appreciated.

Cheers,
Willip4
