Duplicate to another Image... by slybug Duplicate to another Image... by slybug
GIMP 2.8 Python Plugin.
This plugin allows you to duplicate layer, layer with mask, or layer group from one image to another.
I hope this plugin will be useful for someone else.

Installation Instructions:
1. Extract "" from .zip archive to the ".../.gimp-2.x/plug-ins/" directory.
2. Make sure that the extracted file is executable.
3. If you are already running GIMP, close and reopen it.

This plugin requires Python!
If you have the "Filters > Python-Fu > Console" menu item you are all set. If not, install Python support for GIMP.

Version History:
v1.1 (19.04.2013)
- Added "From the top" and "From the bottom" options in "Keep Level" menu.
- Some code improvements.
v1.0 (01.12.2012)
- Initial release.

My other plugins:
Create Layer Mask from...

Being able to duplicate to a new image is one of the things i missed most when switching from photoshop to gimp, so I'm very happy to have found this plugin.

After installing Gimp on a new disk I clicked on a layer group  to copy it to another image and nothing showed up.
If you have used this plugin once, you really miss it when you can't do that anymore.
The GUI is great
It's a must have plugin, so I hope it will be a standard plugin in the next Gimp v.2.8.x release or latest in Gimp v3.

If you work with images containing many layer groups that sometimes get re-used in other images, this gimp plugin is your best friend. straight forward and easy to use. nice work.
