    How can I put photos in the layers palette so I can put one over the other.

      How can I take 3 photos that are in the project bin and place them in levels so that I can use portions of each photo, and layer them?

          1. Open a blank, new file from the File menu (File>New>blank file). Enter the width & height of your paper stock, resolution 300 px/in, background white, or any other color.  This will be your canvas. Ideally, the resolution should be the same value as that of your 3 pictures.
          2. Open picture #1, and with one of the selection tools, e.g. selection brush, lasso tool, select the object that you want
          3. Go to Edit menu>copy to place it on the clipboard
          4. Go back to the canvas
          5. Go to Edit>paste, and the object will be on its own layer.
          6. Use the move tool to position the object, and to resize with the corner handles of the bounding box
          7. Repeat for pictures 2&3
