6.10.  Paste as New

Revision History
Revision $Revision: 1873 $ 2006-07-27 scb

The Paste As New command creates a new image and pastes the image data from the Clipboard into it. If the data is not rectangular or square in shape, any regions that do not extend to the edge of the canvas are left transparent (an Alpha channel is automatically created). Of course, you have to Copy your selection before you use this command, so that you get an image with the same dimensions as the selection.
