Read the help file. PhotoShop is so big and complicated. It’s a pain in the ass to sit here and explain it.

For the first question. To put a pic or object into a new file youve opened you need to cut or copy it from the original pic using one of the many selection tools. Create your new file, open the pic you want to use, select what you want from the pic, "example: lasso, marquee, or magic wand tools", then click edit, copy and close the pic. Now you should be back to your new file. Chose edit, paste and your image is transferred. You may have to do some resizing to get it the way you want it. Edit, transform, or free transform.

Second question: To change transparency or opacity on an object. Make sure your selection is on its own layer. Select that layer in the layers palette, adjust the opacity slider in the layers palette to your liking. Note: You cannot adjust the opacity of your background layer. If you want your background layer transparent you will have to copy it to a seperate layer for adjusting, then hide the original background when you flatten your final image.

Obviously there are a ton of ways to do all these different things, and many more selection tools than I mentioned above. Photoshop has so many options for everything but thats what makes it the best.

P.S. You think photoshop is hard to learn, give 3d studio maxx a shot! Suddenly photoshop doesnt seem so hard anymore!!
