Selection image size

Selection image size
Hi

I'm a former Photoshop user. The reason I no longer use it is because of a silly misunderstanding with the NSA and MI6. But hey, that's the past and I'm a believer in moving on.

Anyway, my first enquiry here is a simple one having to do with selection. When I used PS I would at times use the wand selector and then open a new file which already had the dimensions of the selection. Thing is, when I select something in Gimp and open up the new file it still has the same size as the main image from which an area was selected, i.e., if the main image was 500x500 and I selected something 100x100 the copy was still 500x500.

Yes, a simple question but an answer will help. And I can assure you it has nothing to do with remote viewing and foreign embassies. Cool

Oh, and if anyone knows of a tutorial that goes in depth with Gimp, please leave a link.

Cheers

RE: Selection image size
Thank you for the replies. I discovered how to do it. With Gimp if you make a selection then you have to go to, "create -> from clipboard", and that gives you the selection size itself as a new image. As you know, with PS when you select then clicking open a new file would be in the size of the selection. Just have to get used to the different pathways in Gimp. Smile

Cheers
