Cool Photoshop Tip!

Friday, April 20, 2012
Good morning, Sherry here - are you ready for another Photoshop tip?  This is one I learned a few months back that has saved me great aggravation.  Here's the scenario - when I had an element that I wanted to place on my background paper, I would arrange my documents as tiles (Window - Arrange - Tile, or Alt-W, A, T).  Then I would click on the element I wanted to place on my background paper and drag it over.  Sometimes that works fine, but other times not so much.  So here's the trick:  Open your background paper and your element into Photoshop. Then Alt-W, A, T to arrange the windows as tiles (you do this so you can see all the documents on  your screen).  Be sure your layers palette is displayed.  Go to the document which contains your element.  Rather than dragging the element itself into the document with the background paper, just go to the thumbnail in the layers palette and drag the thumbnail instead!  Works like a charm every single time!

Do you have an easier way to get your elements onto your background papers?  I'd love to hear from you in the comments section - my way may not be the best way and I'm always up to learn new things!
