Rotate layer with Gimp

I select the rotate tool and click a layer that contains an image.
I see a selection around the image. Not sure why and how to remove it.
I rotate the layer.
The rotated image is clipped against the selection, which means the rotated corners are cut off.

How do I rotate a layer without having it clipped against the selection?

I’ve tried all the different ‘clipping’ values in the tools menu. They all end up cropping the rotated image.


Do this:

Use the rotate tool. The canvas clips the image. But the image is now bigger than the canvas – the yellow dotted line shows the layer boundary.

Click Image > Fit Canvas to Layers, and the canvas expands to fit the rotated layer.
