    Every time I drag and drop an image and it adds to the layer, the layer disappears.

      It’s tough to say exactly what is happening without more information. If you could record a video of this and link it to my contact information, I might be able to help you troubleshoot the problem.

    Hey do you how to stop photoshop from turing an image you insert to the background .

      Do you mean the locked layer? You can click the lock icon in the Layers panel and it will change it to a normal layer.

    This is quite frustrating for people who have no idea where to find the finder window. Is this something that comes with Macs? Perhaps this is part of a series of videos, which would likely mean it makes sense in that context. However, for anyone stuck on how to load an image onto a layer (not rocket science with other less complicated programmes) in photoshop there seems to be a lot of assumed knowledge.

    Nicole,
    Many thanks for the simplicity of your explanations. I process astro-images in PixInsight, with minor touch-ups in PS. This will make things much easier and professional-looking. You offer several ways of performing different tasks, which is a superb way of teaching – much better than the “This is how I do it, and there’s no other way” method. Thank you again.

    Open a page, and then open a video, and then spend 4 minutes on that (+ bufffering and ads)?

    Why not just say it all here quickly?

      Sometimes I do written posts, sometimes I do videos. They both take a lot of time and effort, and they are both free.
