How can i cut a region from the image?

Create a brush using the region select tool?

I''m not sure entirely what you mean... do you want to crop the image down to a smaller part?

Or erase a section to transparent?

Just want to select one region, move it a little bit sidewards (hiding something there ) and fill what was on the old place, with the surrounding background color.

- Use the region selection tool
- Right click on the top left corner of the region...
- Drag to the bottom right corner and release...
- Now more the mouse till the brush is over the new location and left click.

Thanks, but the contents of the old region is still there, and its not easy to fill with the background.

Now after i think of it - what i''m describing is a move operation.
I guess i can do it with 2 steps - copy with the brush, and then erase the old region, but it will be handy, if there is a way to do it with just one operation.

I wonder if there isn''t any property in the select tool that i''m missing?

When you select with the right mouse button it should clear the region to the current background colour... I know that works because I use it.
