I am having trouble with a photoshop file. I have a .psd file that has text on it and I would like to insert a picture between the text to complete that file but I can't seem to find out how to do that. Can you help?

    I'm not sure I understand exactly what you are trying to do.  You should be able to copy and paste into Photoshop.

    Could you help by providing an example jpg of what you are trying to accomplish.

    I am guessing, but I think your asking how to add a picture in the text.

    1) Open your photo/image in photoshop

    2) Create a new layer and add your text

    3) Move the newly created text layer below the image

    4) Highlight the photo layer. Then in the menu bar, go to layer > Create Clipping Mask. (short cut - Hold down the alt key and click right in the middle of the two layers.)

    You should know see the results. You can now add more elements to your image like a background color and a drop shadow. Plus there are more advanced methods to this process that provide you with more options. The links below should be very helpful.

    OPEN PSD file with Photoshop..

    Click F7 to view layers window .

    You need to create a new layer BETWEEN the layers in question.

    If psd Does NOt have any layers then this wont work.

    Since the Photoshop Text also an image? PSD, so basically what your asking for is to add an image to another image.
    Put both of them onto Photoshop
     and on the image you want to use . add to the text  
    highlight that image part using the select tool and drag that over onto the text image
    Alternatively just click on one  and select control-a, highlight the second from the title bar and do control-v to paste it as a new layer. Adjust as necessary.
    To remove the background using the magic wand or select tool copy to a new background.
