    I copied and pasted a part of an image in the same image, after extending the canvas size to accommodate the pasted part - the background of the image was made transparent. The pasted image is not visible, though the marching ants of the selection are seen. I changed the background to white, (new layer - white; and put the white layer below the existing layer, but still the pasted layer cannot be seen (not visible).

    I am making some mistake but do not know it. Can someone please tell me how to make the pasted layer visible?

    OS: Ubuntu 14.04; GIMP: The version available in Ubuntu Software Centre (2.8.18)

    Best guess is: You did not resize the layer when applying Image -> Canvas Size.
    Make sure all layers in the drop down box is selected

    Next best guess You made the selection but forgot to copy before pasting.
    Empty clipboard pastes empty pixels.
    If you use Paste as a new layer, that pastes to the top left corner, use the move tool and move the active layer for position.

    Any solid (opaque) layer does of course have to be below the transparent layer(s)
