I am trying to follow Takui's Grunge style layer tutorial, I have the image and rock for texture but stuck on how to make a new layer and paste the texture onto it when I try to paste its not highlighted!!!
I would be very pleased if anyone could give me any advice as I find layers quite difficult at the moment, Thank you for your time Pauline.

pauline ive not got that but should be the same as elements
(i use psp mainly) what i tend to do is open both pictures one on top of each other (the top being the one you want to overlay) select all then copy (under edit), close this image and then paste onto the image underneath will add it as a new layer, you can then change all attributes (ie opacity etc) under the layer palette hope this helps stuart

ps there prob is a quicker and easier way to do it in cs sure some cs guru will help Wink

In the layers palette at the bottom there are icon options to trash/create new/copy layers

Once you have created one. Open the image you wish to paste into it. Press Ctrl A to select the complete image and then Ctrl C to copy it into the clipboard.

Go back to the first image and click on the background copy layer in the layer palette and press Ctrl V to paste the clipboard image into it
