question about feather tool
When I copy a selection from one image to another, I can't select the feather tool to blend it in the new image (it's greyed out). I have to first anchor the layer, then use the paths tool to re-select the pasted portion again, then feather. Is there another way?

Update: Looks like I can feather before copying/pasting the selection. Is this the only way?

RE: question about feather tool
A few remarks and a helpful link

1) Select All to un-grey the Select/Feather option

2) Feathering appears to feather OUTWARD from the selected boundary. So if you simply feather your "all selected" image, you wont see anything change

3) You need to define a boundary inside the limits of the image to be the boundary from which you feather outward

4) But even if you do that and then feather, the image still looks the same. You have to remove the region outside the boundary from which you are feathering.

This link describes the procedure nicely without the verbiage I stuck in above, which I think is helpful re: why the various steps in the procedure below
