i am new and overwhelmed with photoshop. I know what i am trying to do is easy but.....
I am creating a thank you picture for the tutors in our church.
I have created a background in "window 1" which has my kids names they have written in an oval. around that i want to put their pictures. When i go to File -> open and get a picture of one of the kids and then crop it that image is in WIndow 2. How do i get that image into the original window where my centerpiece of their signatures is?

Simple, put the two windows beside each other and click and drag the one picture onto the other. This will create a new "Layer" in your original. To see your "Layers" select  "Window >> Layers" from your "Window" menu at the top.

Photoshop works with "Layers." every "Layer" is unique and editable individually from other layers.

There are a couple of ways.

1. Use the "Window >> Documents >> Tile or Cascade" option from the Window menu.

or

2. Use the window resize button in the upper right corner to resize each window so you can see both.

See attached image.

Thank you. In PS4 it is windows -> arrange -> tile. and there is a button drop down box on the top called "arrange documents."
