new image size according to cut content
Hi!
I cant find a place anywhere in Preferences where it's not required to give measures of a new picture first. But I don't know the measures in advance, not before I have pasted the cut content there! I want the new image to be exactly the size of the cut I am about to paste.
Hope anyone can help!
Regards,

Oh, found the answer in a rich2005 post from July 2011! Thank you so much!

Regards,
If you are pasting the contents of the clipboard directly into Gimp when there is no current image open, then the you will end up with a single layered image containing your clipboard contents that is exactly the size of the pasted image.
The size of which should be visible in the window's title.
To prove it for yourself, under the Image menu choose Canvas Size and you will see it matches the windows title.
You will also see under the Image menu an option to Fit Canvas to Layers and alternatively under the Layers menu Layer to Image Size option.
Hope this helps you.
