There could be several reasons. Check the following:
- If the target image is displayed at a smaller Zoom setting than the source
image, a.k.a. the image you're copying actually IS smaller than the target
image you're pasting it to.
- If you have a selection active on the target image and use the "Paste Into"
command (instead of just "Paste"), the pasted area will be masked (cropped) to
- If the copied image is a larger size canvas than the target image, you'll
need to expand the canvas (Image > Fit Canvas to Layers is a good command to
know about) otherwise the image you're copying will get cropped to the canvas
Numbers may not lie, but neither do they tell the whole truth.
