Image within ellipse

Hello! I hope someone will tell me how to do the following photo manipulation. Bear with me, please.

What I want to do: Place image inside an ellipse and color area between image and ellipse line. Square corners of ellipse will be transparent, of course.
What I can do: Place image inside ellipse and make area outside of ellipse transparent. Use lasso tool to make path around image that is inside ellipse and cut it out. Then I can color all ellipse and transparent square except image. This leaves a colored square with the image centered within that square.

Why I am stuck: I want area between ellipse border and image to be colored as I chose, while area between ellipse and square lines remains transparent. I Googled lots, learned some, but can’t do this yet. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

There are any number of ways, some better than others however roughly using your procedure but maybe in a different sequence.

1. Open the image

2. Add a new layer, fill with whatever you want as a background, move the layer under the image.

3. Make your selection around the subject.

4. Invert the selection Select menu -> Invert and cut it Edit -> Cut (or delete)

5. Merge the layers Layer -> Merge Down

6. Make the elliptical selection.

7. Invert the selection Select -> Invert

8. Cut the selection Edit -> Cut (or delete) and then Select -> None to lose the selection.

9. To trim to size (if you want) Image -> Crop to Content.

Remember if you want to preserve the transparency save the image as a Gimp xcf or Export as a png file.
