Copying few layers at once.

Hello,
how to copy every layer of the image to another at once? I was using 'flatten image', but it is not too good solution.
Thanks in advance for any valuable replies.

hi, as far as i know, there is no way to do this. what i do is save it as a new name and delete the unnecessary layers.

I mean that I want to first develope a small part of image, in layers and then move it to bigger, main image - it's just more efficient for me... It's a pity that I can't do it without flattening the image..

Drag the layers in small image to the big image. The layers from the small image will be placed in the big image automatically. You can only drag one layer at a time. <>zeus<>

This does not preserve layer alignments. There should be some way to group layers for transformations.

There is a way to do this. Once your layered image is finalised change the canvas size to the size of your large image then create a new calque of this size. Copy your large image to the new calque, then move it down to the bottm of the calques list. Next you click each of your small layers between the eye and the thumbnail so that a cross appears. This allows you to move all the layers so selectionned together to the position you want. Cheers

Dear Mr. McCauley,

What is a "calque"? Is that the same as a Gimp layer?

Sincerely, Martin

Yes it is, Martin. Sorry for any confusion, the result of writing in English about a program I run in French.

Cheers DM
