[Need help] Loading a transparent image
Recently (today) I decided to upgrade GIMP to the most recent version,
but now when I Paste (CTRL + V) a image with a blank/transparent background, it loads up with a black background instead, it wasn't doing this before, and I even tried multiple version/different images/restarting my computer to fix it, none of this worked Sad

So if anyone could help me fix this (I usually edit my images by pasting them in, so I kinda need this Confused) I would greatly appreciate it.

(if it matters, I'm using windows 7)

RE: [Need help] Loading a transparent image
What is the Gimp version? 2.6.x or 2.7.x?

Where are you pasting the images from? What is their format? JPG, TIFF?

Have you tried to paste them elsewhere (into Office (MS- or Open-), or MS-Paint, or else)?

2.6.11
I'm copying the image from my site
http://nixshadow.com/images/lostfile.png
(Right click, copy image, it's a png file)
I don't believe mspaint has transparency, but it does it in paint.net as well.
Not..sure if it's supposed to in that either, as I don't use it, just have it.

-edit-
It loads up fine in flash CS3 though. (pasting it keeps the background blank)

-edit x2 combo-
Okay, I fixed it, I guess it was the version? I might have gotten the wrong (x32) type.
But anyways, 2.6.8 seemed to have fixed it.

Thanks for posting though Smile

Hmm. Works for me:

- Load your imlage in Firefox
- In Firefox: copy image to clipboard
- In Gimp: File/Create/From clipboard

Also works:
- File/new
- Edit/paste
- Select floating selection: new layer
