Dogsdigsholes...Hi I have been trying so hard to do this part. I cant seem to get my background picture to be placed underneath the globe picture. The little white box with the red x on it (underneath the Layer, on the right hand side)will be highlighted with the globe pictures beneath it but when I click on the background picture it will switch and then the white box with the red x is no longer highlighted.... and the background picture is on a diffrent Layer. I have made the background pic smaller so it will fit, but just can't seem to get all the pics under the same Layer. Do you understand what I'm trying to explain, because I barely do??? Lol!!!

Look on the right hand side of the screen. There is an area labeled "layers." What you have to do is make sure your picture of the snowglobe is on top of the background picture. To change which picture is on top just click the picture you want to move and drag it up the stack until it is on top. To adjust the background after you have them layered just click the center of the snowglobe where the background is showing. That will let you reach through to that layer and move it until you are happy with it's location. If you have any problems just LMK and I'll try another way to explain it :0)
