How do I import image as a layer?

Recommended Posts

I have never used any program like this and just downloaded this one. I am trying to make a banner for my blog. I have the banner and have figured out how to do a text layer. But I can't figure out how to make my picture a layer instead of a whole new project. Every time I open a picture it creates a new project instead of making the picture a layer. How do I do that.????

but how do you get a picture or image from a folder on your computer in that layer? When I try to open an image it just creates a whole new project and won't open into the layer??

^ what aps said...

also the long way around would be to go to the new project that is opened press ctrl+a then press ctrl+c... the go back to your other project, and press ctrl+v on a new layer to paste it there.

or the simple way would be to open the picture. then add your text on a new layer. Then resize it to fit your needs.

Thanks for asking this question; I was having the same problem however was hesitant to ask the question. It seems that my question got answered by reading your post.
