Please reply only to the list, so others can help, too. I've sent this

It may not be obvious that the inversion has actually done anything. The 
"marching ants" will look very similar.

One way to verify what has been selected is to hit the "Delete" key; 
that will delete what is selected. Then immediately do Edit|Undo (or 
Ctrl-Z) to undo that deletion.

Just Edit|Copy, then, say, Edit|Paste as|New Image. That should give you 
the fountain on a transparent (chequered) background. Or, you can paste 
into another image as a new layer, for example.
