Inverse crop in GIMP

I have an image that has blocks of useful content and blocks of useless content. I would like to remove the blocks of useless content without copy/pasting all of the useful content into another image.

Basically, is there a way to remove a stripe of an image?

Zealous crop does not want to remove transparent areas.

here’s a sample image, with useless content deleted already: enter image description here


  1. Use R (Rectangle Select tool) to select a piece of the text
  2. Shift+CTRL+L (Float)
  3. begin moving the piece into position and hold down CTRL as you move it to constrain it to a vertical move
  4. anchor the text back to its layer by pressing
    CTRL+H (Anchor)
  5. when you have finished use Shift+C (Crop Tool)
    to crop the image.
