    Need Help

    KarenKaren1900

      I'm looking for help in something basic. I'm looking to add an image from one picture to another. I.E. take the flower from one picture and add to my child's hand in another picture

          Select the flower and click Layer >> New Layer Via Copy. A new layer gets created and you can use it on another image.

           

          Thanks

            1. Open the picture with the flower
            2. Use one of the selection tools (e.g. selection brush, lasso) to select the flower. You should see "marching ants" around the selection
            3. Go to Edit>copy to put it on the clipboard
            4. Open the picture with the child
            5. Go to Edit>paste. The flower selection will be on its own layer
            6. Access the move tool and position the flower in the hand. You can resize with the corner handles of the bounding box

              Hi Karen

               

              Flowers can be tricky to select. Try searching for clip art flowers and you may be able to find something you like that’s already prepared as a PNG or PSD file with a transparent background. That will make things much easier.

                Yes, but that's where the power of this program and the skill of the operator converge.

                  Yes indeed hatstead, but the reason why Elements has built in clip art and graphics is to make life easier. I was simply drawing attention to the wealth of available resources that scrap bookers know only too well.
