    Photoshop Elements 10 Duplicating Layers

    monicab82802545

      Hi! Are you able to duplicate multiple layers on a canvas AND THEN reposition them to fit onto the canvas? I don't want to RESIZE the layers, just fit the most that I can onto a 12x12 canvas. I am cutting out shapes on my Cricut, and want to sqeeze as many of the shapes onto the canvas size to be able to use the most of the paper sheet that I can. Thanks!

          Try the following:

           

          1. Go to File>new>blank file. Enter H-12", W=12", resolution 240px/in, Background: White  This will be your canvas
          2. Use one of the selection tools to select object A . You should see an outline surrounding the object ("marching ants"), indicating that the selection is active
          3. Go to Edit>copy
          4. Go back to the canvas, then Edit>paste. A will come in on a separate layer
          5. Activate the move tool, and position A
          6. Repeat steps 2-5 for objects B, C, D, etc.

            I know how do duplicate, just wasn't sure if there was an easier way to duplicate AND arrange 100+ little shapes (in this case leafy branches) to be able to fit to a 12x12 sheet...
