Pasted images have black backgrounds
I am trying to paste an image into a comic I am making on GIMP. The image I am pasting is just a white face outlined in black. The background of the image before pasting (on the original site) is white (or maybe transparent). However, when I paste the image onto GIMP, the background changes to black, which envelops the black outline and ruins the picture. How can I paste this image so that the background remains white/transparent?

Here's the URL http://alltheragefaces.com/face/surprised-open-mouth

I'm copying it from Google Chrome. I'm just right clicking the picture and clicking "Copy Image". Then I go to GIMP and press Ctrl + V.

Yes, saving the image and then using "Open as Layers" works. Thank you so much!
