    How to separate different elements of a composite image into separate layers?

    Jack_606

      Hi guys,

       

      I have hit a road block and I was wondering if someone could help me get past it!

       

      Basically, I have this image:

       

      [IMG]http://i50.tinypic.com/13z06jn.jpg[/IMG]

       

      and across the top of it is going to go some text (the title of the article).

       

      However, I would like for the text to go behind the head of John Marston (the man in the image), but obviously not behind the background.

       

      The trouble I'm having is, this is a single image. I'm wondering, is there some way of separating the image of the man from the background so that I can lift it up above the text, or some way of moving the text behind him but not behind the background?

       

      Or some entirely different solution that I've completely overlooked? Apologies if it is a very simple one and it seems like I'm wasting your time; I don't profess to be an expert with Fireworks!

       

      Many thanks in advance to anyone who is able to help me with this problem.

       

      Sincerely,
