Noob - working with layers

Recommended Posts

Hi All:

Have been using the program with much success though I am not anywhere near expert. So small things tat don't work drive me crazy (and waste so much time!) So I know there is a simple answer to this but I can't work it out.

The problem:

I open a new background - 1440 x 600. Then import my image (in new layer) - 1350 x 280.

Now I want to put some text or arrows pointing from the background to the image but I can only write/draw on the imported image not the background. Have tried merging to no effect. I know this is an elementary thing but am wasting time trying to figure it out - so someone tell me where I'm going wrong!!

Much appreciated,

So you have selected the layer you want to draw on? Just click it in the Layer window.

If you want arrows above the Background and Image 1, 3 layers would be best.
