Transfer selection to other image
Is it possible to transfer a selection between two images of the same exact canvas sizes without altering it's shape and relative position? My hypothesis is to copy the selection into a channel, then copy/paste the channel into the second image and then regenerate the selection. But traveling channels across images doesn't seem possible. Specifically I'm using script-fu, but a general hint is good anyway.

That's a smart one! Among all the instructions, you exploit gimp-channel-new-from-component for its ability to bridge the two images. Strange however that Gimp doesn't provide a more intuitive way.
