How to move layers in Photoshop 6
It might seem kind of tricky to move documents together in Photoshop 6, but in a few easy steps, you can put together any kind of collage you want!
So let’s start out with a photo. Click File > Open and choose a picture.
Now, let’s add something else to make the photo really pop. Open another file — this one can be anything you want.
OK, now we need to select what we want to move over. I want the line, “Dear Mollie,” so all I have to do is click the Rectangular Marquee Tool on the left-side toolbar and drag it over the part I want. Once you’ve selected what you want to copy over, simply click Edit > Copy or Copy Merged. Once you’ve done that, go back to your original photo and Edit >Paste. Your new addition will appear in the middle of your screen.
To move your new layer, click the Move Tool, and you’ll be able to drag it anywhere on your background.
To add new layers, simply repeat these steps. It’s important to note, though, that when dealing with multiple layers, you may only select one at a time. To alternate between moving different layers, all you have to do is right-click the layer you want to move. The title of the layer will pop up — like Layer 1 — so just select that and move it wherever you want!
This concludes my introduction on layers. Next week’s lesson will be more complex🙂
