Hi and happy New Year to you all!

I am using Photoshop CS6. I have a jpg image where I have added 4 individual words using the horizontal text tool. I saved the file as a .psd. I have a different jpg image where I would like to use the previously mentioned words in the same location on the new jpg. How do I do this without retyping everything?

Save it as new file2.psd from file1.psd

in file2.psd now remove the old jpeg and import the new jpeg in the same layer place. ,

you can also put the new jpeg just above/on top of the old jpg layer.

thats it.

I'm assuming that your JPG & Text is on different layers.

Create a copy of your PSD file and open it.
Create a new empty layer ... go to File > Place and locate your second JPG
Insert it and resize/move/rotate as necessary, then click outside the image to finalise.
Keep your text layer(s) on top and show and hide the JPGs as required (Use Layer eyes)
Delete the first JPG layer.

Ctrl Shift + E  Will merge everything if you just want a final JPG as the output.

Thank you all for your submissions. Unfortunately I could not get it work even though you each provided very useful solutions. It must be something I'm doing wrong.

May it it will be bit confusing as of now, but spend a little more time and learn basics and it will all be easy for u. just focus more on layers and u will get it all.
