Add a Background Element from Another Photo
1. With an image open in Adobe Photoshop Elements, select a portion of the back of the images using one of the selection tools, such as the Rectangular Marquee or the Magic Wand tool.
2. Choose LayerONewOLayer Via Cut from the menu bar. The selection becomes a new and independent layer.
#The new image is assigned to Layer 1, and the original image is assigned to the Background layer. You can modify, delete, or transform these layers without any change to the original layer.
3. Open a photo that contains the element that you want to replace the selection with; a replacement sky is shown in Figure 11-22.

Add a Background Element from Another Photo
4. Select the portion of the new image that you want to transfer to your image.
5. Choose EditOCopy.
6. Select the first image and choose EditOPaste. The new sky is added to a new Layer 3, as shown in Figure 11-23.
To adjust the colors of the new image, choose WindowOLayers and select the layer containing the new sky layer from the Layers palette. Choose EnhanceOAdjust ColorOHue/Saturation. By adjusting the hue, saturation, and lightness sliders, I was able to make my new sky dramatic and appropriate.
7. Choose WindowOLayers and then select the Background layer in the Layers palette to make it the active layer. The original Background layer (which becomes Layer 0 after cutting the sky) is on top and the new sky layer is the next layer down, as shown in Figure 11-24.
8. After making all your adjustments to the merged image, choose LayerOFlatten Image.
You should not flatten the image if you intend to continue to work on it later. The Flatten command combines all the layers into a single layer. A flattened image is best for sharing your photo via e-mail or Internet. You may choose to keep the layered image for later changes but save the flattened image using a different name for sharing.
9. Choose FileOSave.

Choosing and Using a Printer
igital photography is great for posting photos to the Internet and e-mailing photos around. But most digital photography enthusiasts also want to print hard copies of their photos. That's where printers enter the equation.
Figuring out how successful a particular printer is in delivering a high-quality photo print is mostly a function of the printer's resolution. Printer resolution refers to the number of dots that are transferred to the paper during the printing process. If you're printing 8-megapixel photos directly to large format paper, you need a high resolution printer to get the best results. Typical snapshot prints from consumer grade digital cameras don't require such high resolutions for good quality prints.
