Layer via Copy/Cut by slybug Layer via Copy/Cut by slybug
GIMP 2.8 Python Plugin.
Copy and move the selected area to a new layer in the same position.
This function is similar to the functions with the same names in Photoshop, and more powerful. Unlike them, it can copy/cut content, not just from one layer, but also from the layer groups. In Photoshop, this is not possible :D (Big Grin) 
I hope this plug-in will be useful for someone else.

Installation Instructions:
1. Extract "layer-via-copy-cut.py" from .zip archive to the ".../.gimp-2.x/plug-ins/" directory.
2. Make sure that the extracted file is executable.
3. If you are already running GIMP, close and reopen it.

This plugin requires Python!
If you have the "Filters > Python-Fu > Console" menu item you are all set. If not, install Python support for GIMP.

Version History:
v1.6 (09.01.2014)  Nod 
- Over 35% speedup.

- Fixed bug with non-rectangular selection.
v1.4 (04.06.2012)

This is an excellent plugin and works fine, but the only trouble I have is the menu labels are in 'cyrillic' is there a way I could switch them to english? The file I put in the gimp plugin folder is english.

I can't get this to work for Gimp 2.8.10 mac version - I did put it in my defined location of my home folder via application support from which is library/application support/GIMP/2.8/plug-ins and it's not showing up, I always use that location when adding plugins.

I was having issues with the plug-in as well. You might have to make sure you have the ownership of the file  or that it's executable.  What I do is after I extracted the file from the zip, I'll open up the terminal (Applications>>Utilities>>Terminal) and type in chmod +x name-of-file.py and hit enter.  Then I copy it into the plugins folder. 

This method has worked for me with Gimp 2.8.14 and this plug-in. Hopefully it'll help for you too!

IT was just a .py file that I could place inside the plugins folder in my home library of gimp - which I do have it under the plug-in directories, I'm just makin' Gimp feel like a customizable version of Photoshop CS4, might be a bug within' 10.6 I do have the latest python.
