I’m totally a beginner to digital art and have so far taught myself working with layers , although it is frustrating that there seem to be no comprehensive tutorials available for this software.
I have worked out how to copy and paste an image using the rectangular marquee tool but I don’t always want a rectangular shape.
When I have attempted to copy and paste using the lasso or polygon tool I copy, then paste or paste in place but the image doesn’t appear.
What am I doing wrong?
ANY help is greatly appreciated.

I tried to copy a selection using the polygon lasso, then I deselected, made a new layer, and pasted. It worked (pasted) as expected.

Things to check: when you copied, confirm the layer is not empty ( might be copying from an empty layer above the content layer). Confirm the source content layer isn’t a masking layer. Try to simplify the situation, using a file with content on just one layer.
