View Full Version : multiple images in one logo
09-14-2008, 10:29 AM
Lets start off with saying im new to photoshop. I use CS2 and could really use some help.
I am trying to make a logo but when i try to drag a smaller image into the background, it takes over the whole background and replaces the original. I need to learn how to add 2 or 3 images to make 1 logo without replacing the original background. I might just have to turn off a setting?

The imported images appear in "logo" document as separate layers.
You may drag on it as many pictures (i.e., add as many layers) as you want.
To select and manage layers, you use the "Layers" palette (Window > Layers).
In case, you import relatively large images, every added layer covers the previous (underlying) one.
To reduce size of an imported layer you can:
- either reduce size of the source image (Image > Image Size) before importing (dragging) it
- or select the proper layer in the Layers palette, scale it down (Edit > Transform > Scale), and adjust its position with the Move tool after importing
Hope this helps.

I went to drag a photo that is 64x64 pixels onto my background of 300x200 and it made the photo(64x64) i dragged a whole new document, which means now i have 2 documents up :( . i can [x] that out, and my old background(300x200) is still up. its like whenever i go to drop the picture into a background it will just start a whole new document. is there some setting i have to turn off? :confused:
