I am trying to copy a layer from one image to another image but I want the contents of the layer to paste to the exact same position in the second image.  I know how to copy/paste and drag/drop layers, but I'm having difficulting getting the conents of the layer to be exactly in the same position on the image.

Thanks

If you drag/drop the layer FROM the layers palette, NOT the contents of the layer on the canvas, it will put the contents in the same place in the new image. So go to your layers palette, drag the layer to the new image.

maybe I'm doing it wrong, but when I drag/drop from the layers palette the the contents appear wherever I release on the second image.  It does not move to the same place.  The layer I am moving contains just text if that makes a difference.

Hmm, yes i see the problem now. I wasn't thinking clearly. Best suggestion now is to use Image>Duplicate, remove the layers you dont want, and add the bits that arent position critical.

Of of course you could actually use the rulers and guides to position it exactly.

I'm suprised there isn't an easier way to do it, but this works I guess.

Thanks
