I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.


Try to right click the layer and select "Duplicate Layer...". Under "Destination" select "New" as the document, give it a file name and click "OK".

This will copy the image in that layer into a new document.
