Paste images using coordinates
#1
I would like to be able to paste images using coordinates. I know about Paste in place but I want to take a new image and then paste in an image at an exact x,y place. I did some research and found this. Back in 2015 someone on a website called superuser.com said

"I'm afraid that Gimp doesn't include it because it is tedious."

Is this true? I think that I can do it with adding a new layer and using canvas but is there an easier way?

Thanks

Is that in a script or manually? How do you expect to provide the pasting coordinates? And coordinates of what? Top left corner? Center? Other (content, when there is a transparent margin).

Good point, top left corner by hand, and paste whatever is in the copy buffer.

Paste to new layer, and then edit the layer attributes (right-click in Layers list) and set the layer offsets:
