GIMP 2.8 Python Plugin.
This plugin allows you to place a layer in the rectangular selected area. The selected area can be of arbitrary rectangular shape.
1. Extract "place-layer-into-selection.py" 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.
