How to Copy Image Including All Layers in GIMP

Sometimes when I’m working on a project in GIMP, I want to be able to quickly copy and paste my current work without needing to combine all layers. I used to always right click -> Merge Down each layer before copying the image I’m working on. However, I realized there is a quick solution to this problem! So if you’re wondering how to copy image including all layers in GIMP, let me tell you.

As you can see from the screenshot above, you just need to go to Edit -> Copy Visible (Ctrl-Shift-C) and that’s it! It copies everything that’s visible within your image (not hidden layers or anything like that).

Then you can simply Ctrl-Shift-V to paste as a new image!

Don’t forget to always save your GIMP project with all of your layers if you want to be able to make edits in the future.
