When I put a photo in Photoshop it goes on the background layer , and when I add a second photo it erases the first clip and it goes on to the background also .
No, when you open two images they are simply open as two separate files, nothing is erased.
Maybe you should abandon the tabbed display and use floating windows to better appreciate this.
Now if I have three (3) clips in Photoshop how can I get to see then as Layer 3
One can copy/paste (not a very good option, though), drag/drop, use File > Scripts > Load Files into Stack, …
I probably do not have a complete understanding of how Photoshop works . As I said earlier I have 3 clips in Photoshop , I though that :
Clip -1 was always the BACKGROUND LAYER and then
Clip -2 would show as LAYER _ 2
Clip - 3 would show as LAYER _3
But when I click on CLIP - 2 this now shows as THE BACKGROUND LAYER , ETC ETC.
It sounds like you have opened 3 separate documents. You need to combine them into a single document to have layers. I recorded this video that shows different ways that you can combine images into a single document. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DgaDPeujU3Y&sns=em

Hi Theresa , like I said your tutorial is awesome but I am having just a slight problem ,
In demonstration No.1 Tabbed Drag & Drop : When I click on the tab of a clip and try to drag like you said to do , the entire tab along with the clip moves from it position and when I drag into the other image I am not achieving the same effect as you having . . . what am I doing wrong ?
