The canvas for my image is a rectangle no bigger than the original image. I want to put a circular background with the image. I've tried two ways:
- I create another layer, resize it large enough for a bounding circle, and use selector to draw an ellipse. However, I can't get the paint bucket to fill the circle (it only fills to the extent of the original image - as shown in the image here).
- I resize the existing layer and use selector to draw an ellipse. I can't get the paint bucket to fill the circle here either (same problem).
This answer seems to address the issue. Annoying GIMP issue (fill bucket with a circle-slash icon on the cursor). However, the solution presented here is not working for me.
