Angry Bringing pics from photo bin to workspace

I am using pe4. Trying to make collages. I have 4 pics which i am able to bring into editor from files on my hard drive. They all 4 show up in photo bin. I usually have to change one of them for my background. When I click the move tool and then click the next pic it just replaces the pic in layers palette instead of making a new layer. Can somebody help. thanks.

I did the same thing at first. If you look up in the right hand corner of PSE4 there is little tiny squares. There is one icon that is 4 little squares. If you click on that then all the pictures will show up in the workspace. Hope this helps.

Carol is describing how to tile the windows, which will be helpful in your set-up, but does not place the images all in the same layers palette. There are several ways to do that. The best to explain is this:
If you have four images tiled in your workspace, the first one being the background, click on the second one and go >Select >All, then >Edit >Copy (Ctrl-C). Now click on the first image (background) and go >Edit >Paste (Ctrl-V). Both images should now be on top of one another in the layers palette. Repeat these steps with images 3 and 4.

Or another way - use the move tool and click drag the photo onto the original project

Realize that if your new photo is as large or larger than your original, it will look as if it replaced it when it is actually covering it up.

Think of your layers as pieces of paper stacked one upon the other - if the top paper is as large or larger than the bottom paper - you will not be able to see the bottom paper.

This is why you keep the layers palette open and if you are confused as to whether your photos are all on the same project - just look to your layers palette and you will see your photos as layers.
