    Well... I want to put a picture of a cat - behind a window. How do I do it? :) I have both pictures saved in my folder, I put the window on my photoshop canvas. How do I put the cat on a new layer? When I drag the cat image over to the canvas, it makes a new page... How do I put it on a new layer? And then behind the window?

    open both photos

    drag the layer from the cat photo to the window photo (or vice versa)

    make sure window layer is on top of cat.

    now you have to mask since the window wont be transparent (unless you already set up the transparency)

    or read this.
    took 12sec to find a decent article. and the search was "putting a photo on a layer in photoshop"

    google rules.
