Using GIMP 2.99, I'm trying to fit photographs into a photo frame with cutouts. I created the cutouts in a top layer, and am trying to visually scale the photos on the below layers so I can make a (part of a) photograph fit into the frame in an aesthetically pleasing way. This means it is important the frame remains visible.
However, GIMP always brings my entire photo layer to the top while transforming (scaling) it, hiding the layer with the cutouts below. Is there a away to alter this behaviour?
