Gimp help

I would like to cut a jagged part of a picture out. So I am using the feature "select shapes from images" the one where you click on spots and it fills in the dots with a line. After I go all the way around the shape it does not capture the shape. The out line does not flash(term?) What am I doing wrong?

maybe you need to make it a path??
I know I had a helluva time figureing this out in photoshop a few years back. I have not tried it in Gimp yet.

You only have to click once into the shape, you've created; it then becomes a selection

Thanks that works. You would have thought after an hour of messing around with it, I would have done that, I guess not. Thank you
