      Thank you so much …
      Thank you so much for responding. I’ve watched several tutorials, and you have a very clear, easy manner that makes total sense. Wonderful work. I may be doing some purchasing soon!

      Just go to “File” and choose “Open” to get two photos open at the same time. Then use your ‘Move’ tool to drag the sky photo on to the other! This works in all versions of Photoshop. You will have to ‘tear away’ each photo from the top bar first, to make them separate windows. Click and hold on its title bar and drag it down a little and it will ‘tear away’. Watch my new video on floating Photoshop windows.

      I also have photoshop CS2. I’m having difficulty opening and using two photos at once. I’d like to be able to do what you are doing with the model and the sky example. I’m sure you must have a later version. Do you have any idea of how I might do the example of layer masking with two photos as you demonstrate on this video? Thank you!

      From your ‘main’ image (my main image is the girl), just go to “File” and choose “Open” and go find the other image you want. When that image is open, use your “Move” tool to drag the new image over to your main image.

      Finally a tutorial …
      Finally a tutorial that gets to the very basics. Layers are the most confusing part for me as a beginner, but the way you explained with glass example was great. Good job on that.

      Tho when you got to the importing of the Sky picture the explanation got lost . You cant explain everything, but for me to get a background image/masking etc is very confusing. Hard to see how it all plays together.

      Tutorial would be just perfect if you covered those parts just as good as in beginning.
