    You don't fail. Paint.net fails.

    I mean, come on! It erases layers if you move them off the canvas! How stupid is that!?

    Use GIMP or something.

    Srsly? That's retarded. At least GIMP's only failing is that all the windows don't come to the front when you click on one of them.

    Edit > Paste into new layer
    Puts whatever was on the clipboard on a brand new layer, preverving the transparency as it goes. Is that what you meant?
    (Photoshop does this by default, drives me up the wall but is also why a lot of PS users don't realise it's a separate setting on other programs)
