I'm trying to make my own backrounds and layouts but my problem is I don't remember how to merge 2 images together cause it's been sometime since i've messed with image software. What i'm trying to do is have 1 major backround image and simply just add another layer with a 2nd image on it. :banghead: :dubious: :banghead: :dubious:

hey, I hope you solved this by now, but if not -

1. open both files - say, "background.jpg" and "thing.jpg". you want to put "thing" on top of "background"
2. select the area you want to copy from "thing.jpg"
3. copy
4. in the window for background.jpg, Edit->Paste As->New Layer
