NIce ride, Larry!
I use another version for my desktop background.
1958 Ferrari 412S
Hm. Thanks, but something just isn't working. Turning off the eye does nothing as I cannot ever even get to Layer 2. It won't show up.
To begin. I add a photo, I go to File > Open (or Open Recent) and in goes the photo. In the Layers Panel, from left to right, I get the eye, blank box (lock), blue vertical line, arrow, tiny pix of my photo in the blue colored strip that says Layer 1. Then I go back to menu bar, File > Open and bring in another photo but it doesn't add itself to the document, rather, it creates a brand new Layer 1 in Layers Panel and I cannot see or get to the first photo. Oh.... am I supposed to be saving something before I add new elements (photos)?
So many of the other manipulations seem so easy and understandable (I've watched so many tutorials). I just can't seem to understand this first bit about stacking up the layers. Thanks for helping.
Oh, and yeh..... I like 'em low and fast, too! Drove Saab turbos up until last fall -- had owned 4 in a row). Fun and fast!
You say you are "Opening" files. Wouldn't that simply open a new document
with only the single photo placed inside?
Try "placing" images into an active document rather than "opening" your
images. To place an image, click File>Place.
Thanks so much. That's what I needed to start playing with this program! Fantastic.
Once you have multiple documents open, you can also drag photos or elements from one document into another and they will stack as layered pieces.
I'm glad I could help.
