I have an image that requires me to blow it up then drag many layers onto it. The problem is every time I drop a new layer onto the image it appears in the center, so I have to move the image, find the dropped layer and drag it back to where I want it. Its very frustrating and time consuming. Why does Elements do this and can I stop it?
I assume that when you say you're "dropping a new layer onto the image" you mean that you're dragging and dropping another image onto your target image.
I hate using drag and drop, and for your question, simply use Select...All (Ctrl+A) on your incoming image, then Edit...Copy (Ctrl+C) to copy it to the Clipboard. In your enlarged target image, use Edit...Paste (Ctrl+V) to paste the incoming image into the center of your zoomed area.
