To create web-ready images which have feathered edges, I would simply use the rectangular selection tool, with feathered edges checked (on), a radius of, say 20, auto shrink selection checked (on) and select from the source image and paste to a new image with a black background.


The result would be an image with edges fading to black and rounded corners. For some reason, this does not work any more -- when I paste to the new black image, the whole source image gets pasted, not just the selected area and there are no rounded corners.

I was using Gimp 2.2.10 on MacOS-10.4.7. I Even tried upgrading to Gimp 2.2.11, with no
improvement.

I did this a million times before successfully and can't understand why it's not working now. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I reverted back to Gimp 2.2.10, since that was the last version that worked for feathered edges. I also shutdown and restarted the machine -- it still does not work. I attached a screen shot of my attempt to paste a rectangular, feathered selection into a blank, new image (the one on
the left, the image on the right is the source image.)

Can anyone see if I'm doing something wrong?

Thanks again,

   -Chris

My rectangular selections were too close to the edge of the source photo. That was the issue. Sorry, everyone for taking your time.
