changing backgrounds

Recommended Posts

New user: I erased the background (BG) on the image I have so it is transparent. Saved as PNG. Now how do I put the new BG? Can u walk me thru it pls? I know I have to get the new BG on an active layer. Then, do I copy the FG (Foreground) image and paste somewhere. IOW how to merge the two? Must they be same size etc?

TIA Wilt

1. Add new layer

2. Move layer down

3. Paste your background

4. Resize the background (if needed) using the move tool
