I use Photoshop Elements 5, and would like to know if I can get two or more photos on the central portion of the screen so that I can grab selections from one picture and drop them into another. It seems that Elements will let me open as many pictures as I want - I see them in the bin at the bottom of the monitor - but only one in the work area. Can I change this?
Hoping to Clone
Luckily your problem is easy to fix. There are little icons on the top right corner of the screen that let you change your view:
Push the one on the left (circled in red) and the program will stack your open images in a cascade. Push the middle button (circled in blue) and Elements will automatically tile them, fitting them all in smaller windows. The default setting (circled in yellow) maximizes your selected image in the center.
If you prefer, got to Window > Images, and choose your display settings from the menu items instead.
A note to Photoshop users: You'll find similar options under Window > Arrange.
Hope that helps, and happy cloning,
