    How do I cut out an image from one photo and paste it in another photo?

    summer51

      Help!  I did use the scissors and eraser tool to cutout unwanted background, and now I have an image I want to save and copy to another photo.  The problem is that Elements 11 won't let me open up another photo at the same time, or let me copy the selected image to clipboard to paste on a different photo.  Adobe's  info. on how to do this seems to be sketchy.

          Try this:

           

          • Open photo B, the one that you want to add an object to. Minimize this.
          • Open Photo A, and using one of the selection tools, e.g. selection brush, lasso tool, make a selection of the object that is to be transferred to B. You will see "marching ants" when the selection is complete.
          • Go to Edit menu>copy to place the selection on the clipboard
          • Go back to photoB
          • Go to Edit>paste
          • With the move tool, position the object and resize with the corner handles of the bounding box.
