    Please post the picture(s) so that we may offer guidance for your project.

    You can do that via the camera icon in the reply box on this forum page. You can not do it in an e-mail reply, however.

    1. Open the picture of the background (it says "FOR SALE")
    2. Duplicate the background layer
    3. Shut off the visibility of the background layer by clicking on its eye icon
    4. Work on the background copy layer. Get the magic wand tool out of the toolbox, set the tolerance to 30 on the tool's option bar, check contiguous, then left click on the area inside the space suit.
    5. Hit delete on the keyboard, then press CTRL+D to get rid of the marching ants
    6. Open the picture of the boy, and drag the boy up into the work area. Drag the layer with the boy between the background and background copy layers. You should have 3 layers: Background at the botton, boy in the middle, and background copy with the hole in it where you used the magic wand
    7. Highlight the boy layer again, and with the move tool position the boy and resize with the corner handles.



    If you get stuck, post a reply here. Don't start another thread with the same issue, as that just leads to confusion.
