    layers panel

      Please excuse my extreme naivete, as I am a brand-new Ps user.  I lost my Layers Panel somehow and cannot figure out how to restore it in order to finish my homework (creating a poster).  Help!

          Does Window > Layers work for you?

            Ta-daaa!  I think that may have been now it disappeared in the first place!  Thank you.

            Now on to the next problem!

              Yes, thank you John, that enabled me to start over.  Unlike the array in the Ps textbook, it seems that the only way I can make a layer appear on the right is to "tap it open" at the top, above the working screen, and then one layer at a time, only, opens in the Layer Panel.  Nevertheless, I have managed to begin anew.  Thus far I have established the poster size, filled in a background color, typed the heading in the font and color desired, overlayered the first photo, cropped it to size, added a white stroke and added its caption beneath.  I added a second element (book title), cropped it to size and aligned it to the right of the first photo.  I added the second photo in the same way as the book title (or so I thought) but the photo field is absolutely MONSTROUS.  How can I shrink that photo down? The cropping step can only be done when it is overyling the poster, right?
