Transforming a selection on a layer
Hi, I'm just switching to GIMP from Photoshop and can't seem to work out how to do something I did quite often in PS.

I had photographed a number of objects and one of them needed to be rotated. In PS I would select the object, copy it to a new layer (Cmd-J on my Mac), select the object on the layer with the Transform tool (Cmd-T) and then rotate it with the curly arrows in the corner.

I've managed to copy a selection to a new layer in GIMP (copy > paste > new layer) but can't work out how to rotate the selection independently of the base layer.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
