New to Elements - Save cutout and paste in different picture.

Tags: #layers

I am new to photoshop.  I'm trying to save an image I was able to "cutout" from one picture, then I want to paste that image onto a different photo.  I'm learning about layers (slowly...) and I've watched several tutorials.  Everything I've seen/heard makes it look easy, but I'm missing something.  Been working on this for several evenings with no luck.  Using Photoshop Elements 11.   Appreciate any comments, links, ets.  Thanks in advance.

    Once you have the selection ready on the first image,


    use the move tool (refer the below screen shot for the moov tool) and then drag the selection from first image to the secon image tab.

    As soon as you will place the cursor on the second image tab the second image will open up and now you can place the cutout on the second image.

    It will create the layer for you automatically.

    You can also copy the selection to the clipboard (Edit > Copy), open the destination picture, and paste from the clipboard (Edit > Paste).
