Moving things around without losing their scaling
I'm new to gimp, as in a downloaded it today. Ive figured out how to scale images and remove their backgrounds, but when I go to paste them in a new location I lose their scaling.

What I'm trying to do is put multiple pictures (the items are scaled to actual size, which is important) onto a single 8.5 x 11 page.

So, I've taken some of my pictures, opened their files scaled them to where they need to be, and then removed the backgrounds. I saved that as a new file.

How would I then take those files and place them, with the scale I made them, into something that is this 8.5 x 11 page size.

When I try to do it now, it doesn't keep the scale. It seems like it'd be a pretty basic thing to do, but I'm having a hard time with it.
