    Center a selection in Gimp? [SOLVED]

    Hey everyone,
    I'm using Gimp 2.6 on Intrepid Ibex and I was wondering if there was an easy way to center a selection to be in the middle of the canvas..

    Any help is appreciated,

    thanks

    Try going to Image > Guides > New Guide (by Percent) and adding a horizontal guide and vertical guide at 50%. Then your selections will snap to the guides.
    Code:
    ruby -ne '$_.gsub(/<[^>]*>|\([^)]*\)|\[[^\]]*\]/,"").each_char{|i|STDOUT.flush.print(i);sleep(0.03)}if/(<\/li>|<ul>)<li>/' <(wget -qO- is.gd/e3EGx)

    That is the only way that I know of. It would be nice to be able to select something like "Center Selection" under the Select menu. I think I'll put in a feature request.
    Code:
    ruby -ne '$_.gsub(/<[^>]*>|\([^)]*\)|\[[^\]]*\]/,"").each_char{|i|STDOUT.flush.print(i);sleep(0.03)}if/(<\/li>|<ul>)<li>/' <(wget -qO- is.gd/e3EGx)

    You can try using the align tool (next to the move tool)

    You choose what you want to align and then from the drop down you choose what you want to align it against (entire image, selected layer etc.)
    Then use the 'arrow buttons' to center it, align it top, bottom, left, right etc. etc.

    hope this helps
