    Hi all,

    I'm about to throw my computer out the window. I'm having a problem with
    photoshop 6 right now. Basically I have 2 images (one is a background and
    one is a logo) I'm trying to transfer the logo into the background so I can
    work on the image together. Thing is as soon as I go to new layer in the
    background it "cuts" part of the background image. Not like it cuts the full
    section so leaves a transparent bit but it deletes the last colour I put
    into that image and leaves me with the previous colours.

    Help!

    No need to toss your computer. One explanation for what you're seeing is
    that you painted or otherwise put your new colors onto the upper "logo"
    layer instead of the background one.

    Click on the "eye"-cons in the layer palette to sort this out. If that's
    indeed what happened, use the lasoo tool to cut and paste your work to a new
    layer, move that layer just above the background layer. Then use the "Merge
    Down" command in the layer palette to put the bits where they belong.

    That didnt work. It made the image turn greyscale but thankfully a friend
    managed to sort it out for me!

    Thanks though!

    Make sure both layers are created with the same mode and color palette, if
    they were created as
    seperate images to start with.
