Copy and paste

Aug 17, 2013 5:56 PM

I thought if I had Photoshop this would be easier than working with preview.  I am trying to copy a section of a photo, a window in the house to be precise, and paste it on the house elsewhere.  When I first loaded the software Elements 11, I did it.  Then I deleted the pasted item to make it better.  Now it says I don't have pixels selected to copy the image again?????   Whatever that means????? 

And can't you reselect a pasted image to move it (adjust it)??

    Before you can copy anything in PSE, ever, you need to tell PSE what you want to copy, by selecting it. There are a bunch of selection tools you can use (quick select tool, selection brush, marquee tools, magic wand, etc.), or you can just press Ctrl+A/Cmd+A to select your whole image.
